Default Origin of Shorty

Am I wrong or did Ted at LA Guitars kind of prod Rainsong into making the Shorty?

I think you're right, based on what I've heard.

I think it's a similar situation for the Bluegrass model with Michael at Macnichols.

I have no proof for these claims.

Right on both counts!

Also, Ted is not done with prodding ...

You're such a tease.

I'm glad he, and the forums, prodded for the Shorty FLE. I sure love mine.

Rainsong owes Ted on that one, everyone likes the Shorty it seems.

It's pretty cool to have a company with great guitars and customer service and so responsive to its retail outlets as opposed to those companies that seem to dictate what we customers are supposed to want...

That would be cool but I don't think you will see another carbon company try a double. Would be interesting. My two favorite guitars Emerald Double and Rainsong JM 1000 BI N2. Neither is leaving my home.

That would be something I'd be very keen to see.

I strongly supsect Ted is nudging Rainsong for a travel guitar. A parlor and a travel model would be wonderful addtions to their line up.

A Rainsong parlor would probably be irresistible, sometimes I dislike Ted! Have enough guitars!!
