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.

The CO-WS1005NST has an offset soundhole. In addition to the striking look, we think this helps the player hear more of the guitar's output.

Offset Soundhole

This model has an offset soundhole. The impact of an offset soundhole is three-fold: 

  1. It brings the soundhole a little closer to the player's ears, offering a bit more feedback when playing
  2. It creates more surface area in the middle of the guitar's soundboard, which some players feel produces a little extra warmth and low end
  3. It looks cool

In our opinion, the tonal impact of this feature is subtle, and we feel these models don't sound dramatically different than their central soundhole counterparts. With that being said, if you're interested in a slightly different voice and playing experience, these models are certainly worth checking out.

"Shorty" 12-Fret Neck

This RainSong features a "Shorty" 12-fret neck which joins the body at the 12th fret instead of the 14th fret. This translates to a shorter scale and shifted bridge position.

12-fret RainSong guitars have a shorter scale, which translates to slightly lower string tension and frets that are a little closer together. Some players find short scale guitars a bit easier to play than full scale instruments.

The lower tension and altered bridge placement also tends to produce a tone that is a little warmer and more bass-focused than 14-fret guitars, although the difference is often subtle.
