Default Getting back into carbon

Was into carbon fiber several years ago got out of it given I bought a couple high end handmade wood acoustics. Today I got out my Rainsong Black-Ice Jm1000.
Hadnít played it in quite a while. Fun to explore it again. So even all the way up the neck. Have to play it a little differently to keep it sounding right to my ears. Mixing it up always improves you as a musician. Yes and on the Jumbo the N2 feels right to me, like a old Gibson J200: neck incredibly consistent. Good stuff.

It's always good to revisit those old friends that don't get played as much anymore. And good to see you back.....

Welcome back.... agree with you the JM1000/3000 were the only two guitars that I have regretted selling. The best sounding IMHO (ears) Rainsong makes. What's the song... "You don't always know what you got till it's gone ...."

Not much! Just not as into 12 string. But still in the stable! Probably should sell it, signed by Allistair as #1!

My nephew, I know how shy you are. But that doesn't mean you're not a lookin. Got that camera, always right in the next room--it's almost spooky. Social scientist say that in observing you alter the reality. Can't fool your uncle, you're involved.
