Here at Guitar Hangar, we love Rainsong guitars. Their hybrid carbon fiber and glass fiber bodies resist temperature and humidity swings, so they don't need to be adjusted every time the wind blows or the temperature changes. As one of our customers likes to say, "you could paddle a canoe down a river with a Rainsong and then play a show with it later that night" (although we don't recommend it).
Rainsong guitars are the perfect for players that want a premium-quality guitar that sounds AMAZING, yet doesn't need a lot of maintenance and care. They're also great for performers or players on the road, because the hybrid material resists damage. If you own a Rainsong, you can travel anywhere and rest assured that you're not going to open the case at a gig and find a big split or crack down the middle of the guitar... because carbon fiber doesn't crack!
About the BI-JM1000N2
The Black Ice Series embodies Artistry. Each instrument is unique. The soundboard on each guitar is meticulously crafted to achieve an aesthetically pleasing appearance without overbuilding it. Each soundboard is individually conceived so every guitar is unique. Unique in design and unique in tone.
How do you describe RainSong's JM? Three words: loud, loud, and loud. And if that's not enough, it's also loud. This is the largest body RainSong builds. The sheer size, combined with the attributes of Projection Tuned Layering™ make the JM one of the loudest acoustic guitars on the planet. This guitar is loud. We had to say it again. But the JM is not just about power. The narrow waist and some layering refinements specific to the Jumbo soundboard give the JM some real fingerstyle grace. The guitar is strong, but impeccably balanced, with bass, mids and trebles distinct, clear and, dare we say it again, loud.
About the N2 Neck
The N2 neck is a result of an extensive, long-term collaboration with the renowned artist Steve Miller and Master Luthier John Bolin. The neck design is based on a modified "U" profile that has been popular in guitars since the 1950s. The N2 has a substantial feel that is ergonomically sound and results in better transfer of string vibration energy to the soundboard. The N2 features a truss rod that is accessible from the head stock. Graphite does not warp or bow with changes in humidity and temperature. The purpose of a truss rod in the N2 is to allow customization of the relief to suit individual preferences.
About the Fishman Prefix System
The Fishman pickup system that's installed in Rainsong guitars plays nicely with the carbon fiber design, so your guitar sounds amazing whether it's played acoustically or plugged into an amp or PA system. The robust low end and sparkling highs blend smoothly with the beefy midrange to provide one of the most full-bodied acoustic tones we've ever heard. And with the EQ and dynamics controls that the Fishman system supplies, you'll never be stuck with a tone you don't like.
