Instruments

Ó Ráinne Musical Instruments are built using the highest quality tonewoods that are selected for their tone, aesthetics and structural integrity. The instruments are bound with wooden binding and purfling that complement the strength and look of the instruments. There are a wide choice of tonewoods used, ranging from traditional tonewoods through to less common native species.

Five-piece necks are used throughout the range, for their strength and stability. The necks are laminated using three pieces of quartersawn mahogany and two pieces of veneer which match the choice of tonewoods used. Standard neck width is 45mm at the nut. Custom widths are available on request. All instruments are fitted with a two-way truss rod, with access at the headstock end.

Bone nut and saddle are fitted as standard. Mother of pearl inlays are used for the headstock logo and for fretboard markers. Schaller tuning machines are used throughout the range. All instruments ship with a Hiscox hardshell case.
