Default Rainsong DR1000

Anyone here have a Rainsong DR1000? How do you find it compares to the Jumbo Rainsong Classic series?

Any difference between Rainsongs made in Hawaii and made in Washington?

Default Dr1000

I have not played the others, but I did own a DR1000. At first I thought it looked weird, but the more I played it the more I loved it. I was just so nice to not have to worry about all the climate stuff that goes with owning a all wood guitar. I sold it, or course, because I am guitarded. A mistake...

I had both a Rainsong DR and a Rainsong Jumbo, both made in Washington state. I cannot jugge for the ones made in Hawaii because I never owned one.
The DR and the Jumbo are quite similar, they are both powerful and excellent sounding guitars. If you only flatpick, both of them are great.
If you also play fingesrtyle, in my opinion the Jumbo could be a better choice due to its vfersatility. In both cases, I doubt that you will go wrong.

The most versatile Rainsong, however, is in my mind the WS-1000.
