Default Anybody play the new Rainsong?

I see where Rainsong has introduced a cheaper all-graphite OM guitar with a 1-3/4" nut. I love my CA Bluegrass Performer for its playability and sound but esp. as it's maintainance free here in dry dry Colorado. I would love to get an OM companion to it for fingerstyle, this looks like just the ticket. Just curious as to anyone's thoughts/impressions. -Santos

It looks like a good guitar, but I can't stand the fire engine red! Does it come in black?

The Rainsongs I have had a chance to play were impressive....for a synthetic material guitar. Still much prefer wood, but thats my ear. The Rainsongs had nice volume, decent balance..but just not my cup or tea for overall tone.
Also seemed a bit on the expensive side to me.

Just downloaded the price list available on the Rainsong site, it indicates that these guitars can be had in red, blue or black color.
