Rainsong

Signature RainSong sound in a deep-chambered, carbon-fiber and glass-fiber body.

The RainSong Hybrid acoustic-electric guitar combines carbon fiber with glass fiber construction to achieve the signature RainSong sound and road- tough stability at an attractive price. This glass- and carbon-fiber guitar is wonderfully versatile. Combining the best qualities of large and small-bodied guitars, the RainSong H-WS1000N2 guitar's body shape is suited for a variety of musical situations.

A large, deep chamber gives the RainSong WS glass- and carbon-fiber guitar strong projection and rich bass. The narrow waist and tight upper bout allow for a ringing treble, good balance, and clear definition of individual notes. Overall, the Hybrid acoustic-electric guitar is impeccably balanced. The shapely curves and light weight make the RainSong WS a comfortable acoustic guitar to cradle or stand with. The extra-deep cutaway encourages playing up the fretboard. The N2 neck is a result of an extensive, long-term collaboration with the 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. The N2 has a substantial feel that is ergonomically sound and results in better transfer of string vibration energy to the soundboard. RainSong's N2 features a truss rod that is accessible from the headstock. Graphite does not warp or bow with changes in humidity and temperature. The purpose of the acoustic guitar's truss rod is to allow customization of the relief to suit individual preferences.

At the heart of the RainSong Hybrid H-WS1000N2 guitar is an impressive electronics system, the Prefix+T. This preamp features ultraquiet electronics and volume, bass, treble, and semi-parametric contour controls. In addition to a built-in chromatic tuner, the Prefix+T adds a brilliance control and a phase switch and notch filter to help fight feedback. Includes case.

Comments about Rainsong Hybrid Series H-WS1000N2 Deep Body Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've had mine for about a month now and it's been a great traveling companion. I bought it for camping trips and it delivers. It has a unique sound but it is a good unique. My Martin does sound better but I'd rather not play it in 30 degree weather sitting next to a fire. You can do that with this one no problem. It sounds quite nice amped as well (I run mine through a Crate 60w Gunnison). The carbon fiber and associated building process likely contribute to the rather high price - but you shouldn't ever have to replace it. I'll keep my Martin for the warm woody sound but I'll keep this one as well. I'm very happy with it and would recommend it for anyone who plays outside frequently.

My "New" Favorite Guitar

      Comments about Rainsong Hybrid Series H-WS1000N2 Deep Body Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This is my new favorite guitar. I bought it to be my work guitar - I teach guitar lessons in the Texas Hill Country and am forced to leave my guitar in the trunk of my car. The nature of the carbon-fiber made it perfect for the 100 degree temperatures. I cut a thinner saddle and played with the truss rod to suit my style of playing and interest in a lighter action. The neck is great. The sound is clean and loud when pushed. My friends that play it want one too. I recommend it without reservation.

      Great Guitar

      Comments about Rainsong Hybrid Series H-WS1000N2 Deep Body Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Great guitar.
      This is the best playing acoustic I've ever had. Love the bigger N2 neck and the electric sized frets. As a primarily electric player, those were the most important features. The electronics with built in tuner was also a great plus.
      Build and setup are excellent. The action is a tad high for me (electric player) so I might have that lowered at somepoint, but it was setup just as well as any high end Taylor or Gibson I've played.
      This is a great value for this guitar. The graphite/glass combo actually sounds pretty good and I love the fact that I don't have to worry about humidity changes in the great white north. I actually like the look of the gloss finish compared to the studio series and the hardshell case is also a big plus.

      great guitar!

      Comments about Rainsong Hybrid Series H-WS1000N2 Deep Body Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Light and bright w/ the chunkiest neck I've ever played (in a good way). Only small gripe is the end pin lip doesn't seem too reliable for holding a strap . . .
      Everything you need on an acoustic.
      so far so very good!

      Made like a Gun! Plays like a Rainsong!

      By Krishna Das

      from Denver, CO

      Comments about Rainsong Hybrid Series H-WS1000N2 Deep Body Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I didn't know that there was a world outside tonewood until I bought a Rainsong. A lot of reviews went into my head before I bought it. Rainsong isn't available anywhere in Denver CO even for a Demo. So I had only 2 choices; either driving to Salt lake city or Vegas. I couldn't do either due to time constraints. Come Thanksgiving, I ordered a Rainsong coz after reading so many reviews, I was so sure that I wouldn't be disappointed with this AXE. The Conclusion: This is one guitar which can be bought without playing in-store!Its is a beautiful looking guitar. The picture doesn't really do justice to its looks. The build quality is really amazing. The people at Woodinville really give time for each guitar and it is evident in its exquisite finishing! There is a depth to its bass and the tone is amazingly bright. The beauty of this guitar is that the Bass and the Treble both are well balanced and it is surprisingly loud enough. I also tried hooking it up to an Amp to test the fishman electronics. The tone is really sharp and distinct.I have observed that this guitar does holds onto its tuning quite nicely. Denver CO has a dry weather, but this doesn't really bother the guitar. NO HUMIDIFIER REQUIRED!The guitar comes with a TKL custom hardshell case with a Rainsong Logo embossed on it. I registered this guitar with Rainsong and guess what, The customer support folks sent me 3 custom made picks with Rainsong logo on it (I had mentioned this in the comments when registering). That was really nice of them!Rainsong - You can never go wrong with it. Pick one up!
