Product# J51470

Lightweight, all-carbon fiber creation with convenient cutaway and quality, uncomplicated electronics.

Combining the best qualities of large- and small-bodied guitars, it is ideally suited for a variety of musical situations. A large, deep chamber gives the Concert Hybrid Series CH-WS strong projection and rich bass. The narrow waist and tight upper bout allow for ringing treble, good balance and clear definition of individual notes. Overall, the CH-WS is impeccably balanced. The shapely curves and light weight make the CH-WS a comfortable guitar to cradle or stand with. The extra-deep cutaway encourages playing up the fretboard.

Designed with the performing artist in mind, the Concert Hybrid Series harmoniously blends the best features from all of RainSong's lines. They matched the warm and responsive unidirectional carbon soundboard from the Concert Series, the mellow Carbon/Glass body construction from the Hybrid Series, and the intimate short-scale 12-fret neck.

The stunning high-gloss finish on the soundboard is complemented by a visually pleasing satin body and the comfortable playability of a satin neck. Blacked-out appointments give the Concert Hybrid series instruments an understated, yet distinctly suave, appearance.

Includes hardshell case.

One of the best purchases I have made lately

Comments about RainSong Concert Hybrid Series CH-WS with L.R. Baggs Element Electronics Acoustic-Electronic Guitar:

I am a full time performer and music teacher in NYC and I initially wanted a carbon fiber guitar to use at outdoor events and as a second guitar. The amazing thing is that this guitar immediately because my main instrument! I have owned many Martin, Taylor, Maton and Godin guitars and always felt that they lacked volume and spent a lot of money on repairs to cracks and set ups due to humidity issues in NYC.

The amazing thing about this guitar is that once you have it set up to your liking it will never need work done to it again (unless you play 5 shows per week like me and need a fret level every year or so).

The Baggs Anthem also turned out to be one of my favorite pickup systems that I have ever used. It sounds natural but has a nice warmth and presence, especially in these guitars. I found the tuner to be very useful too and it is very accurate if you tune it from the guitars harmonics on the 12th fret.

I highly suggest that you try one of these guitars if you never have. Especially this body style which is extremely comfortable but still have a lot of power to it.

I would put it on par with my Martin D-18.

    As a beginner I do not have any prejudices and habits of a professional. But when trying to form chords I can tell when an instrument is fun and to play. This guitar makes me want to practice.
