To combine the stability and robustness of carbon fiber with the traditional aesthetics of wood, RainSong has developed SFT: Soundboard Fusion Technology.  After careful experimentation, we are able to fuse a thin spruce soundboard and a unidirectional pre-impregnated carbon layer in a single molding step.  The resulting SFT soundboard is a composite matrix that resonates as a single unit, like a solid wood soundboard.  The physical properties of the carbon fiber far exceed those of the thin wood.  Hence the SFT soundboard maintains the imperviousness to humidity and temperature of carbon fiber.

An SFT soundboard delivers rich crystalline carbon sound subtly colored by wood.

The WS is a wonderfully versatile guitar. Combining the best qualities of large and small bodied guitars, it 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.
