Basic care tips to keep your RainSong in like-new condition.
CARING FOR YOUR RAINSONG
Truss Rod & Action
Truss Rod: RainSong necks, made entirely out of composite materials, should not warp or bow over time. However, our N2 necks have a headstock-accessible truss rod for fine-tuning neck relief to your preference. Adjustments may be made using a 5 mm wrench.
Action: Your RainSong is set up with factory standard action. The action may be altered by having a qualified technician adjust the saddle height.*
*Note: Any playability problems such as string buzz caused by altering the saddle height is not covered by the warranty.
Stringing & Gauges
Change strings one at a time. This will prevent the under-saddle piezo pickup from repositioning.

Your RainSong utilizes traditional fretting processes and materials. We utilize jumbo, nickel alloy frets that have been pressed into fret-slots on the fingerboard. Fretwork and maintenance* is the same as a traditional wood acoustic guitar.
*All fretwork should be performed by a qualified guitar tech.
