CO-DR1000N2 6-string dreadnought
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.
Dreadnought is the traditional workhorse of acoustic guitar music.
With a large, deep body and wide waist, RainSong's DR has the powerful
bass and ringing treble of a great rhythmic guitar, but still maintains
a wonderfully balanced sound, with clear distinction among individual
notes. From rhythm to lead, the DR makes its presence known. Capable
of cutting through admirably in any acoustic setting, the DR is loud
enough to compete with banjoes, mandolins and other traditional volume
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.
