    Complex overtones, silky warmth, and crystal clarity.°

    This largest of RainSong's all-graphite guitars combines the sweetest tone you've ever heard with great durability, climate resistance, and astounding volume. The narrow waist and some layering refinements specific to the Jumbo soundboard, give it real fingerstyle grace. Its strong voice is impeccably balanced, with distinct bass, mids, and trebles.

    RainSongs are the only all-graphite acoustic guitars in the world. Body, neck, fretboard, and bridge are all made out of pure graphite.

    All-graphite construction and Projection Tuned Layering mean great sound. Projection Tuned Layering was developed by RainSong to ensure that all RainSongs have the crystal detail, warmth, and volume of the classic carbon sound. In conventional guitars, acoustic volume is limited by the weight of bracing. Also, bracing provides only local, non-uniform stiffness, resulting in varying amounts of undesirable overtones and some deadening of tone and detail. RainSong's all-graphite construction and Projection Tuned Layering remove the need for bracing by providing uniform stiffness across the soundboard. RainSongs are made entirely without braces for greater acoustic volume and clean, detailed tone.

    Pure carbon tone is an utterly unique sound. It is clear, rich, and resonant, similar to a piano, with a treble that rings with crystalline clarity and a bass that is warm without being muddy. And, because of the uniform stiffness of the tops, the RainSong acoustic sound is impeccably balanced and very, VERY loud. Once you have heard the classic carbon sound you'll recognize it anywhere.

    Performance Shape-Cast necks are thin and easy to play. Their unique design features a feel that is at once comfortable and different. Performance Shape Casting, a process invented by RainSong, allows necks and fretboards to be cast simultaneously as a single graphite matrix. Standards can be maintained that are unheard of with more conventional neck shaping methods. Performance Shape Casting also allows fret slots to be cast in place for flawless intonation with no dead spots. Additionally, RainSong necks are pre-engineered for optimal relief. As a result, heavy steel truss rods are not required and action can be set low for fast, buzz-free playing. RainSong necks will never twist, warp, bow, or need any adjustment whatsoever.

    The inherent strength and stability of graphite results in a guitar that can survive travel and changes in the environment. Another result is amazingly stable tuning. In fact all RainSongs are shipped from the factory tuned to concert pitch.

    RainSong uses the same technology in bonding its bridges and necks that is used in making planes, rockets, and satellite equipment. Stronger than the bonds of any wood glue or off-the-shelf epoxy, the RainSong high-tech materials and techniques combine for a smoother passage of energy from string to soundboard, for greater detail, a broader dynamic range, and cleaner tone.

    RainSong believes that graphite is not something to cover up. That's why RainSongs are finished clear, to expose all the shimmering 3-dimensional beauty and distinction of graphite's weave. RainSong has developed the best possible finish for protection and appearance without dampening sound. Layer after layer of clear UV protective finish is applied, sanded and buffed until only the thinnest mirrored surface remains. A carefully bookmatched back of graphite weave, perfectly inlayed custom shark fret-markers and logo give RainSong a striking and refined look.

    Top-of-the-line hardware balances the composition in cool chrome.

    Electronics are not an afterthought at RainSong; they are an integral and important part of the RainSong experience. The JM1000 features premium onboard electronics. Because graphite is a natural enhancer of electrical energy, the all-graphite construction of RainSong works wonders with pickups. Plug a RainSong in and the world stands on its head; all the subtle richness of the classic carbon sound is amplified into a unique bloom of harmonics and tone.

    All fret jobs and set ups are done individually by expert luthiers at RainSong's Woodinville factory. The frets are top quality nickel alloy for minimal wear and great looks. And, because RainSong necks are so stable, action can be exceptionally low for easy and comfortable playing.

    RainSong warrants its guitars to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the ownership life of the original purchaser, subject to limitations contained in the warranty. Includes case.

    The thinking mans/womans guitar

    By clear red

    from Asbury Park

    Comments about Rainsong JM1000 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Had a Hummingbird for years. Finding I had to retire it, I wondered what to replace it with. I'd played a friends Rainsong way back when and something about it had stuck in my mind. Anyway I went to Mandolin Bros,NY to check one out.They had one JM 1000 left and after hearing its tonal clarity and resonance I knew that was the one. I call it the thinking mans guitar becauase it's not flash, its not impressive looking. But it can talk the talk as well as any gitar. And of course the Fishman pickup is state of the art.

    Great Guitar!

    By guitarplyr2008

    from Pittsburgh

    Comments about Rainsong JM1000 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have owned and played the jm1000 for about three years. I've played it on stage professionally, in the studio, and at home casually. The voice is surprisingly natural, with shimmering highs and mids and a deep clear base. If the strings are a good brand this guitar stays in tune under the most difficult situations. Hot stage lights do not affect it. ZFive hours in a hot car trunk (I lent it to a now ex-friend) at 90 degrees in Rio De Janiero does not make it go out of tune! My only complaint is that the fretboard is dead flat with no radius. Long playing (over three hours or so) tires my wrists a bit, but the guitar's so great I will live with that. I've carried it with me from Pittsburgh to Dallas to London to Rio De Janiero and it's virtually indestructible. I have bought and re-sold many guitars over the years, but I will keep this one.

    Like a handheld piano

    By southpause

    from suburban Chicago

    Comments about Rainsong JM1000 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've owned or currently own Martin, Gibson, Larrive, and Taylor and this guitar beats them all, whether finger style or flattop picking. It has tremendous volume, deep bass, and remarkable tonal consistency. It's also easy to play and immune to humidity and temperature problems.. it's easy to see where that great tone comes from: There's no bracing under the soundboard, and yet, it's built like a tank. Plugged in, it's just as amazing.

    quite an instrument!!!

    By james-xU3MI

    from vancouver, bc

    Comments about Rainsong JM1000 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I obtained a rainsong with the fishman system (not the LR Baggs one it ships with nowadays). I'm blown away by the sheer power and grace of this guitar. The fishman seems to be providing most of the weight, since the guitar body itself is very light and resonant. It's a powerful instrument, with a very clear sound... not ultra warm, like a high end wooden instrument, but clear, strong and well defined. It has great dynamic response and the resonance across the body is insane. The guitar is well balanced, and the neck and fretboard are superb. I guess the ONLY feature that i'd like to see is making the electronics optional.... (i'd rather use a mic and an outboard preamp than the built in fishman).

    A True New Legent

    By Livin3ly

    from Discovery Bay, Hong Kong

    Comments about Rainsong JM1000 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar by accident, and the shop keeper introduced it to me. Boy, I just can't believe it, it was so light and the tone is so loud and sweet. It's action, playability and finish are all first class and I decided right on the spot, that I wanted it. The guitar has no case and the dealer promised to reorder one for me but gave a very good discount for the inconvenience. The Rain Song customer service is also first class, I received a warm personal welcome email just 15 min after my online registration. I won't hesitate to look for another products from its line up in the coming future.

    The best guitar I ever owned

    By Gerardo

    from Troy, MI

    Comments about Rainsong JM1000 Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Warm, potent sound still with great balance between trebles and basses. Oustanding versatility: it is amazing fingerpicked or flatpicked. Loudest guitar on the planet, still very sweet and musical if played with delicacy. Action, set-up, playabilty, finish are first class. It is expensive, but it is built with high class materials and accessories and it will probably last a life time.
