The Rainsong V-DR3100 12 String Acoustic Guitar in Natural combines the impermeability of Carbon Fiber with the looks and tone of a Spruce Top. The Fine Folks at Rainsong have come up with a way to give us the best of both worlds! If you are looking for a 12 string that will make it through the apocalypse, a Rainsong should be 1st on your list. Why do you ask?
We all know that the 12 string guitar, especially an acoustic, is far more prone to having issues thanks to all that extra tension on both the top and the neck. Well, RainSong has sold that problem by making an instrument that not only gives us the richness and jingle-jangle of a splendid 12 string but also a guitar that is simply not affected
The Vintage Series 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.
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 RainSong V-DR3100 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar combines the large-sized sound chamber with lightweight carbon-fiber/spruce construction to deliver an extra-loud and deep tone that superbly counterbalances the extra treble strings. This is a 12-string guitar that is great for strumming and fingerstyle, full of power and delicacy, and ready to hit the road. The RainSong V-DR3100 12-string acoustic-electric guitar is able to stay in tune at concert pitch and to withstand temperature and humidity variations; qualities that every seasoned 12-string player has long pined for.
