The Rainsong V-DR1100N2 Vintage Series Dreadnought Acoustic embodies understated elegance. The traditional aesthetics of a spruce top fused with a robust unidirectional carbon soundboard is finished with an amber tint and supplemented with simple appointments.
The 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 hogs.
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 top 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.
Rainsong Guitars got the carbon fiber craze started years ago. They are the pioneers. And we have been with them for many of the steps along the way! We love their endless pursuit to make the best guitar in terms of craftsmanship and tone that they can possibly conjure up. Take, for instance, the Hybrid Series made from Crushed Glass and Carbon fiber. Rainsong Guitars keep taking steps to make their guitars sound more like famed Wood Acoustics but with the added rigidity of Carbon Fiber!
