The RappahannockThe Rappahannock River is a mid-sized river in Virginia and my home town stream. The Rappahannock Guitar is mid-sized (about the size of an 000) and an excellent compromise between ergonomics and sound. I use a Rappahannock in my gigs--the sound and size fit me just right. All of these have a big voice and a full tone. They have a 24.9 scale length allowing the top to be lightly braced providing easy fingering and the loudest notes possible.
