This is a very nice opportunity for Rainsong lovers. Rainsong has a long illustrious history and has experimented in many ways with the development of CF instruments. The Parlor nylon string has been one of my favorite carbon fiber instruments. A neighbor played the Parlor and has been after me to sell it because he knows that I am sitting on 4 CF instruments and can only play one at a time. I like my neighbor, just not sure how much.

Really interesting - I got about halfway through it today, and plan to finish watching it tomorrow. It's interesting to listen to the constraints Rainsong has as a manufacturer, and compare it with others.

BUT - I do have one suggestion for you, Aaron.

You really should try to find a camera angle that allows your face to be seen as you ask questions. Having that honking great microphone right in the middle is horribly distracting!

Yes I was just discussing that with my friend today. I’m going to either move the microphone lower or off camera or at least remove the windscreen and lower it slightly. It’s blocking too much of my face...

Aaron, first time I seen you in this neck of the woods, welcome! I missed the live stream due to work but I did watch the full video last night and enjoyed it. I used to own a BI-WS1000N2 a few years ago. The guitar looked amazing and the body was quite nice, reminded me of a grand auditorium. The only reason I parted with it is because of the N2 neck. I just couldn't bond with that neck at all. This topic does come up from time to time in this subforum and many others feel the same way and there are others who have no issues with it. After watching the video, hearing what he said regarding the original N1 neck and how people complained it was too thin (I never tried an N1 neck) and they listened to customer feedback and redesigned it I feel they went dramatically the other way. I'm mentioning this not to knock Rainsong or cause a ruckus on here it's because I like the direction that the company is going, especially with the vintage models, but I will never buy another N2 neck guitar. Maybe if Rainsong had a presence here on this subforum they could get some feedback regarding the neck and redesign it. Maybe a size in between the N1 and N2 neck? I really do think they could increase sales with a different neck. This is just an opinion from someone who would like to have a Rainsong in their collection!
