About RainSong Carbon Fiber Guitars
RainSong guitars are built entirely out of carbon fiber, so they aren't affected by changes in temperature and humidity. RainSong's guitars are immune to problems like warping, cracking, or tuning and setup instability.
These qualities make RainSong guitars ideal for players living in dry or humid climates, but the toughness of carbon fiber means they're also great for travel and gigging.
In addition to their rugged design, RainSong guitars sound amazing and are easy to play. Many people are surprised to learn that carbon fiber makes an excellent soundboard material, and it gives RainSong guitars a tone that's surprisingly close to a wood guitar while still being unique.
The Concert Series
RainSong's Concert Series have unidirectional carbon fiber tops. This type of carbon fiber simulates the grain found on natural wood, helping to give the Concert Series a subtly warmer tone.
About the APSE
The APSE is a RainSong special edition model developed in partnership with Grammy-winning fingerstyle guitarist Al Petteway.
It features RainSong’s “Shorty” 12-fret OM body and some cool upgrades, like the Gotoh 510 tuners and LR Baggs Stagepro Anthem electronics with both under-the-saddle and microphone pickups.
The satin Tobacco Burst finish is one of the prettiest we’ve seen on a RainSong guitar and is exclusive to this model.
