All-carbon construction provides more subtle overtones, warmer mids, and phenomenal stability.
With a large, deep body and wide waist, it has the powerful bass and ringing treble of a great rhythm
guitar, but still maintains a wonderfully-balanced sound, with clear definition between notes. Cuts through admirably in any
acoustic setting. It's loud enough to compete with banjos, mandolins, and other traditional volume hogs.
are the only all-graphite acoustic guitars in the world. Body, neck, fretboard, and bridge are all made out of pure 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.
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.
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.
are not an afterthought at RainSong; they are an integral and important part of the RainSong experience. 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 setups 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.
