The Rainsong BI-25Y Anniversary Edition Acoustic-Electric Guitar in Black Ice w/Blue Hawaii Tint is a limited edition offering from the company that embodies 25 years of Carbon Fiber Guitar Building experience.
The Black Ice Finish offers a striking look and with the added Bue Hawaii Tint, this is one of the most captivating Rainsong Guitars that we have seen!
At this point, we all know about the benefits of having a carbon fiber guitar, especially if you experience all 4 seasons in all of their instrument-destroying glory. These guitars require minimal if any, seasonal adjustment making them a favorite of anyone averse to maintenance... so, most of us! A guitar like this could live in the trunk of your car year-round and not experience any issues. But, of course, you'll enjoy playing it way too much to just leave it in your car!
From the RainSong Website... The RainSong 25YR features the Orchestra Model body, which 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 favorite with the coffee house crowd. The treble, already a breathtaking attribute of RainSong's, 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 25YR one of our most individually expressive guitars. Because of Projection Tuned Layering™, the 25YR is capable of strong projection. It won't rattle windows like the Jumbo or the Dreadnought, but the 25YR, when driven, packs a lot of power and punch for a small-bodied guitar. The neck of the 25YR 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 transmission from the strings to the soundboard and enhanced bass response. The sound-hole of the 25YR is located on the player’s side of the upper bout. The proximity to the player’s ear produces a sense of increased volume. The reduced size of the sound-hole combined with the uninterrupted larger vibrating surface of the soundboard accentuates the highs and the lows relative to the mids. A top-of-the-line LR Baggs Stage Pro Anthem electronics with dual-source pickups and a built-in tuner make the 25YR a stage-ready instrument.
