Find a Dealer

The RD-327 has a solid AAA Adirondack (Red) spruce top. Adirondack has been a prized choice for guitar tops since the 1920’s. It is generally considered to be more resonant that Sitka spruce and it also has a unique wide-grain pattern that makes Adirondack guitars aesthetically unique.

The back and sides of the RD-327 are made from solid East Indian Rosewood. It has a nut width of 1-3/4” and the one-piece neck is fitted to the body with a hand-cut dovetail joint. The fretboard is ebony, as is the slot-through bridge. With extensively detailed abalone top purfling and rosette, the 327 looks as beautiful as it sounds. The guitar is finished in a thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer for resonance and historical accuracy.
