Don't Forget

A 12-fret-to-body guitar with unique sound and tolerance of the elements.

The small size of the Parlor belies full and rich sound. A sound that Is characteristic of all RainSongs. Key to the big Parlor sound is the combination of a unidirectional carbon soundboard and hybrid body construction. The P12 features the 12-fret, short-scale NS neck.

P12's neck joins the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th fret. This moves the bridge back on the soundboard towards the center of the lower bout resulting in improved sonic energy transmission from the strings to the soundboard and enhanced bass response.

Unidirectional carbon mimics the tight grain of a fine spruce soundboard. First introduced on the Concert Series, this soundboard is RainSong's lightest. The Hybrid body technology blends the crystalline highs of carbon with the mellow tones of glass. The synergy between the unidirectional soundboard and the hybrid body is obvious in the parlor sound. Includes case.

Comments about RainSong P12 6-String Parlor with 12-Fret NS Neck:

Not being able to actually play one before I bought, coupled with the high price put me off for several months while I searched relentlessly. When I finally got my hands on this used one all my apprehensions immediately disappeared.
This little thing puts out sound equal to or greater than either of my big dreadnoughts including my 1968 J-45. The highs seem a bit synthetic but crystal clear. The lows are big and bad and also crystal clear. Overall it reminds me a bit of a good piano. I've played all the Baby's-Mini's-Traveler's there are and this thing blows them all away.
I did pull the original saddle out and replaced it with the same Tusq but greatly shaved down. The factory set was way too high. I lowered it by 2mm and it plays beautifully.
I travel to and camp in the deserts and mountains of the Western U S for two months a year an will finally be able to take a great sounding trouble-free guitar with me. You can do your own homework but the size and sound of the P-12 can not be beat. Two thumbs-up!

Comments about RainSong P12 6-String Parlor with 12-Fret NS Neck:

If you are looking for a smaller guitar with all the advantages that come with a large guitar, and then some, its time to spring for your Rainsong. We buy guitars for tone. Makers say "you can't get big tone from a small body." They just have not tried a Rainsong Parlor. Surprising volume and tone, almost woodlike grace this almost weightless instrument. Plugged in, you can't tell that it isn't a much larger guitar. The strin! g spacing is perfect for both strumming and finger/flat picking. No more concerns that a student may put the headstock of their guitar through the top of a stage instrument. Play outside without fear of the weather. Not the prettiest of guitars but more bang for the buck than most. Try it. Its love you pick.
