Default My new Rainsong is here!

Just got my new WS1000! What a great guitar. Fabulous finish and look. Plays like a dream with very crystal clear everything! I can't say enough about this guitar. I haven't spent a lot of time with it yet, but already know it's a keeper.

MJH.....Congratulations on scoring a new guitar. So, talk to us. I'm curious. What are your initial impressions of this graphite guitar's sonic, tonal, and resonant qualities? Best regards.....Kabookie

Played a couple of Rainsongs; and I know two people who, as a second or third guitar, have purchased them (including the 12-string model). The tone is different than wood (of course) but definitely "guitar-like" and I thought rather crystalline "clear." I did not have the chance to plug and play, but my pals who own these say they are fantastic that way--and, as advertized, oblivious to weather, humidity, cold, hot--whatever.

That's the dreadnought, right? Only one I would want. Played one once in a shop, pretty cool.

It's actually more like a Taylor GA. I almost got the dread because it doesn't have a cutaway, but got this instead because, overall, it seemed the best one to have for all uses. It is extremely loud for not being that big of a guitar.
