The RainSong Black Ice Series BI-WS1000N1 is an acoustic-electric guitar that embodies artistry in every graphite fiber from which it's constructed. The soundboard on this Rainsong guitar is meticulously crafted individually to make every Black Ice guitar unique, aesthetically pleasing, but not overbuilt.
The WS is a wonderfully versatile guitar. Combining the best qualities of large and small-bodied guitars, this body shape 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 encourage ringing treble, good balance, and clear definition of individual notes. Overall, RainSong WS guitars are impeccably balanced. The shapely curves and lightweight make this RainSong Black Ice Guitar comfortable to cradle or to stand with. The RainSong Black Ice guitar's extra-deep cutaway encourages playing up the fretboard.
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 of making 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!
