If you can live with a 12-fret neck, I think that has a significant impact on reducing the brightness of RainSong tone. I have identical RainSongs, one Concert and one Concert Hybrid, and I think both benefit from the 12 fret neck bridge placement and sound very close to each other despite the materials differences. The CH-WS is a big sounding guitar that is not brighter than a similar wooden guitar.

I have owned both the CO-DR and H-DR guitars. The CO-DR is as bright as a Martin 000 but with the volume of a dreadnought. The H-DR is closer to a Martin Dreadnought but still brighter. Another solution might be combining a 14 fret Hybrid with less bright strings such as Elixir PBs or one of the monel options.
