CO-WS1000N2 6-string full
body cutaway acoustic electric featuring the new N2 neck
The Concert Series is all about Warm Tone. These are the lightest soundboards built by RainSong using unidirectional carbon. Unidirectional carbon mimics the tight grain of a fine spruce soundboard. Thus, it is not surprising that this line produces a warmer tone.
The WS is a wonderfully versatile guitar. Combining the best qualities of large and small bodied guitars, this body shape is ideally suited for a variety of musical situations. A large, deep chamber gives the WS strong projection and rich bass. The narrow waist and tight upper bout allow for a ringing treble, good balance and clear definition of individual notes. Overall, the WS is impeccably balanced. The shapely curves and light weight make the WS a comfortable guitar to cradle or stand with. The extra deep cutaway encourages playing up the fretboard.
The N1 is the original RainSong
6-string low-profile neck. It is unique in design, with a feel
that is at once comfortable and different, this neck is easy to play.
Pre-engineered for optimal relief, the N1 does not include a truss
The N2 neck
is a result of an extensive, long-term collaboration with the renowned
artist Steve Miller (www.stevemillerband.com)
and Master Luthier John Bolin (www.bolinguitars.com).
The neck design is based on a modified "U" profile that has been popular
in guitars since the 1950s. While the N2 has a more substantial feel
than the N1 neck, it is ergonomically sound and actually results in
better transfer of string vibration energy to the soundboard. The
N2 features a truss rod that is accessible from the head stock. Graphite
does not warp or bow with changes in humidity and temperature. The
purpose of a truss rod in the N2 is to allow customization of the
relief to suit individual preferences.
