OVERVIEW

Tiny body, big sound.

The Concert Hybrid Series CH-PA's body combines the traditional, compact shape of a parlor guitar with a modern Venetian cutaway for a perfectly proportioned intimate guitar with excellent access to the upper frets. A lower bout of 13-1/3 in. and depth of 4-1/8 in. makes it RainSong’s smallest body. The small size of the CH-PA parlor belies its full and rich sound.

Carbon Hybrid Series
Designed with the performing artist in mind, all of the guitars in the Concert Hybrid Series, like this CH-PA parlor, harmoniously blend the best features from all of RainSong's lines. RainSong has matched the warm and responsive unidirectional carbon soundboard from the Concert Series, the mellow carbon/glass body construction from their 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 gig bag.

Great instrument to have sitting out and handy

Comments about RainSong Concert Hybrid Series CH-PA Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

I own 6 other guitars, but all require humidification and care. So they sit in their cases well protected but not often played. My "old school" ways led me to have low expectations for a synthetic instrument, but I needed something I could let sit out next to the piano to grab and play spur of the moment without having to worry about damage from temperature and humidity changes. Hence this purchase. I was stunned by the sound - I really did not expect it to be so good. Overtones are fabulous - great balance through the entire register. It is a bit "stiff" off the shelf, so I will likely install lighter strings and lower the action a bit, but I am still more than satisfied. Highly recommend.

      Comments about RainSong Concert Hybrid Series CH-PA Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

      Light weight, easy to handle, wants to be picked up and played. Very clear sound, no mud, nice projection. Set it and forget it. You get into your flow and just stay in it without having to re-tune, sound quality consistent anywhere on the neck you end up. The parlor body sounds bigger, more resonant than you might have imagined.This guitar should easily outlast you, well into the next century.

      Comments about RainSong Concert Hybrid Series CH-PA Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

      CH-PA 1000 is thinner and smaller making it easier to practice. My D28-P martin is hard on my old shoulder. HAD TO LOWER THE ACTION JUST SLIGHTLY. I heat my house with wood making for a low humidity . i have ruined two madolines aD28-p and a nice DR. Grover. This thing just stays on the couch in tune. Elexirs coating peeling like a snake skin. All that fuzz makes the strings sound softer. i will try plain strings 11-52 . To practice 10-47 plain. Bought a blemished model. can't find the blemish.

        Comments about RainSong Concert Hybrid Series CH-PA Parlor Acoustic Guitar:

        I bought this somewhat impulsively prior to a trip last weekend. I did not expect it to be able to compete, volume wise, with a dreadnought, or to sound so full. The forward projected sound to a listener is really impressive, though not the bass response of a dreadnought. It might sound best to me when playing in a live room or slouching a little, but still quite good. I just can't believe something so small and perfect for carrying on a plane is a no compromise instrument to jam with other players with full sized guitars. The cut-away makes the 12 fret neck no problem for me. The satin finish on the back/sides/neck feels and looks great. The gloss top has unidirectional CF for the outer visible layer and is much more conventional looking (good) than the twill on most CF guitars. I put a Mi-Si Trio (no battery version of a LR Baggs Element) in it and I plan to gig with it. A little extra bass on my ToneDEQ and it sounds the same as my dreadnought through our PA. We play a monthly restaurant gig where they put the two of us where they pull out a corner 4-top and a more compact guitar would be nice. It is less than 4 inches longer than a Martin LX but what a huge difference 4 inches can make.

        Service and delivery comments:

        All good. Shipped quickly and double boxed,
