Unique in design and in tone.

The RainSong Black Ice Series BI-WS1000N2 is an acoustic-electric guitar that embodies artistry in every graphite fiber from which it's constructed. The soundboard on this Rainsong guitar is meticulously crafted individually to make every Black Ice guitar unique, aesthetically pleasing, but not overbuilt.

The WS is a wonderfully versatile guitar. Combining the best qualities of large and small-bodied guitars, this body shape is ideally suited for a variety of musical situations. A large, deep chamber gives the WS strong projection and rich bass. The narrow waist and tight upper bout encourage ringing treble, good balance and clear definition of individual notes. Overall, RainSong WS guitars are impeccably balanced. The shapely curves and light weight make this RainSong Black Ice Guitar comfortable to cradle or to stand with. The RainSong Black Ice guitar's extra-deep cutaway encourages playing up the fretboard.

The guitar's N2 neck is a result of an extensive, long-term collaboration with renowned artist Steve Miller and master luthier John Bolin. The neck design is based on a modified U profile that has been popular in guitars since the 1950s. While the N2 guitar neck has a more substantial feel than the original RainSong 6-string neck, it is ergonomically sound and actually results in better transfer of string vibration energy to the soundboard. The N2 neck features a truss rod that is accessible from the headstock. Because graphite does not warp or bow with changes in humidity and temperature, the purpose of a truss rod in this RainSong N2 neck is to allow you to customize the relief to suit your playing preferences.

Includes RainSong hardshell case.

    Comments about Rainsong Black Ice Series BI-WS1000N2 Graphite Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I had been playing a top of the line Martin for years and was set on getting another one. I had known of Rainsong for a number of years but was put off for some reason. Until I heard and play ed one. Wow! Hands down, the tone and action beat out my Martin, and easy. That's quite a compliment! The playability is unbelievable; it feels so easy to play barre chords, and you can really shred on this if that's your thing. I like that I can take it out any time and it will still be in tune. The electronics and case are all top notch, and it comes equipped with Elixir strings. They really go all-out on their guitars and make sure you feel like you are playing the best. I have converted some of my fellow guitarists who just can't believe you can get that kind of tone from carbon.

    Sounds great and looks stunning!

    Comments about Rainsong Black Ice Series BI-WS1000N2 Graphite Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The sound is crystal clear, rich and warm tones. Stunningly beautiful with a mirror finish that reflects everything. The "Black Ice" effect looks to me like black ice crystals that the images don't do it justice. Looks incredible in person. This instruments action plays like any other in the same price range and better. It's construction is sturdy and strong, but what else would you expect from a carbon fiber instrument. I'm loving this guitar!!
    Well constructed and solid with mirror finish. I found no defects of any kind in mine.
    It's definetly well worth the money as it plays and sounds comporable to wood guitars. Not quit as warm as wood but the volume and clarity of this instrument is impeccable. I'd definetly recomend to my friends.

    Very Surprised!!!

    Comments about Rainsong Black Ice Series BI-WS1000N2 Graphite Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I had been hearing about these guitars for a while & had my first opportunity to play one. I was SHOCKED. I'm pretty traditional in most respects when it comes to guitar construction. It wasn't until I picked up the Al DiMeola Ovation that I was a convert to synthetic materials in guitar construction. The Rainsong is on that same level...maybe better...of tone. And all without bracing! THAT'S weird and very very cool. Everything is free to vibrate naturally...even though the materials aren't. Very organic tone...considering.
