The RainSong Orchestra Model is the most refined of all RainSong shapes. It is our most comfortable and intimate guitar, with an immediacy of presence that makes it a favourite with the coffee house crowd. The treble, already a breathtaking attribute of RainSongs, and the carbon sound are simply sublime in this little guitar. A crystal bell clarity, balance, superb separation of individual notes, and an expansive dynamic range make the OM one of our most individually expressive guitars. Because of Projection Tuned Layering™, the OM is capable of strong projection. It won't rattle windows like the Jumbo or the Dreadnought, but the OM, when driven, packs a lot of power and punch for a small bodied guitar.
RainSong Neck Options
N2 – The default neck on this model, the N2 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 more efficient transfer of string vibration energy to the soundboard. The N2 has an adjustable truss rod that allows customization of the neck relief to individual preferences.
N1 – A “no cost”option on this model, the N1 is the original 6-string RainSong neck crafted using a unique low-profile design, one that is at once comfortable and different, thin and easy to play. The N1 is not adjustable. However, these necks are pre-engineered for optimal relief. As a result, heavy truss rods are not required and action can be set for fast, buzz-free playing. The N1 has the same nut-width and scale length as the N2. The N1 features the“dual shark” abalone inlay on the 12th fret.
NS – A “no cost”option on this model, the NS has the same profile as the N2 neck. However, the NS neck joins the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th fret. This moves the bridge back on the soundboard towards the center of the lower bout resulting in improved sonic energy from the strings to the soundboard and enhanced bass response. The NS also has a shorter scale length (24.875”) making it a more comfortable neck to hold and play.
