Default Is the JM-1000 Rainsongs loudest guitar?

I have a JM1000 and know that it physically the biggest guitar they make. Jumbos seem to me to be balanced with their pinched in sides. Never had their DR1000 or the WS1000 to compare. I am just talking volume not tone. Just curious.

Rainsong does advertise the Jumbo as their loudest, and I would have to agree, but the Dreadnought models are right up there.

My wife will sit in front of me if I play the JM-1000 - it's the WS-3000 that she won't, because it can be really, really loud if I lean into it at all.

You have twice the strings and lots of high end with a twelve. Meant to limit it to 6 strings. Apples to apples, for me.
