Yeah, but Breedlove and Martin might still be worse

Rainsong BI-OM1000N2

BI = black ice surface pattern
OM = OM body size
1000 = classic series, center sound hole (an 1100 = offset sound hole)
N2 = newer chunkier neck

Not too complex..... If you want an example of how NOT to do model numbers, look at Breedlove. They change models and series names every year, whether needed or not. And the Martin Smart Wood series sounds like a cat walked on the keyboard while typing. SWOMGTQWERTY means what?? Smart Wood OM sized Gloss Top plus some extra gobbledygook.

They look interesting. What scared me away is the battery replacement is not a user task. Evidently you either have to send it to the factory (China ??) or have a luthier do it. To me this is a very poor design. All batteries have to eventually replaced.
