RainSong

Graphite Does It All

A unique guitar RainSongs are the world's first all-graphite acoustic guitar--body, neck, fretboard and bridge are all made out of pure graphite/composite.

All-graphite construction and Projection Tuned Layering(TM) mean great sound. Projection Tuned Layering was developed by RainSong to ensure that all RainSongs have the crystal detail, warmth and volume of the classic carbon sound. In conventional guitars, acoustic volume is limited by the weight of bracing. Also, bracing provides only local, non-uniform stiffness, resulting in varying amounts of undesirable overtones and some deadening of tone and detail. RainSong's all-graphite construction and Projection Tuned Layering remove the need for bracing by providing uniform stiffness across the soundboard. RainSongs are made entirely without braces for greater acoustic volume and clean, detailed tone.

Pure carbon tone is an utterly unique sound. It is clear, rich and resonant, similar to a piano, with a treble that rings with crystalline clarity and a bass that is warm without being muddy. And, because of Projection Tuned Layering's uniform stiffness, the RainSong acoustic sound is impeccably balanced and very, VERY loud. Once you have heard the classic carbon sound you'll recognize it anywhere, as distinctive as anything on earth.

Impervious to Humidity and Temperature changes the inherent strength of graphite means a guitar that can survive travel and changes in the environment, while the stability of graphite means a guitar that will stay in tune, evidenced by the fact that all RainSongs are shipped from the factory tuned to concert pitch. The all-graphite soundboard will not belly, sink, or crack and the all-graphite neck will not warp with changes in climate. Light in weight, with a proportioned balance that makes it comfortable to cradle or stand with, RainSong is the ultimate combination of workhorse and racehorse for the professional musician.

Performance Shape-Cast™ necks are unique in design, with a feel that is at once comfortable and different, RainSong necks are thin and easy to play. Performance Shape Casting™, a process invented by RainSong, allows necks and fretboards to be cast simultaneously as a single graphite matrix. Tolerances can be maintained with RainSong necks that are unheard of with more conventional neck shaping methods. Performance Shape Casting also ensures that fretslots are accurately positioned for flawless intonation with no dead spots. As a result, action can be set low for fast, buzz-free playing. Finally, extreme strength and stiffness and tight tolerances of Performance Shape Casting means that RainSong necks will never twist, warp, bow or need any adjustment whatsoever. Some RainSong necks feature truss rods only to allow customization of the neck relief to individual preferences.

High-tech bonding materials RainSong uses the same technology in bonding its bridges and necks that is used in making planes, rockets and satellite equipment. Stronger than the bonds of any wood glue or off-the-shelf epoxy, the RainSong high-tech materials and techniques combine for a smoother passage of energy from string to soundboard, for greater detail, a broader dynamic range and cleaner tone.

Beautiful appearance RainSong believes that graphite is not something to cover up. That's why RainSongs are finished clear, to expose all the shimmering three-dimensional beauty and distinction of graphite's weave. RainSong has developed the best possible finish for protection and appearance without dampening sound. Layer after layer of clear UV protective finish is applied, sanded and buffed until only the thinnest mirrored surface remains. A carefully book-matched back of graphite weave, perfectly inlayed custom shark fret-markers and rosette give RainSong a striking and refined look. Top-of-the-line hardware balances the composition in cool chrome.

Great plugged in sound. Electronics are not an afterthought at RainSong; they are an integral and important part of the RainSong experience. Because graphite is a natural enhancer of electrical energy, the all-graphite construction of RainSong works wonders with pickups. Plug a RainSong in and the world stands on its head; all the subtle richness of the classic carbon sound is amplified into a unique bloom of harmonics and tone.

Expert fret job and set up All fret jobs and set ups are done individually by expert luthiers at RainSong's Woodinville factory. The frets are top quality nickel alloy for low wear and great looks. And, because RainSong necks are so stable, action can be exceptionally low for easy and comfortable playing.

Limited lifetime warranty RainSong warrants its guitars to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the ownership life of the original purchaser, subject to limitations contained in the warranty.
