As a long time Rainsong Dealer, we can attest that there isn't a more stable and consistent guitar on the market today. The Carbon Fiber construction, of the Rainsong Black Ice BI-JM1000N2 Jumbo Carbon Fiber Acoustic Electric allows the player to relax and worry about their playing rather than the functionality of the guitar they're using. No need for humidification systems or seasonal neck-adjustments, this guitar can be stashed in the trunk of your car until you need to play.
The cool "Black Ice" design on this Jumbo is unique to this guitar. Tone-wise, it leans more towards a Taylor type presence and top-end more so than a Martin, making it fine-tuned for live performances in any type of setting where you want to cut thru the mix.
How do you describe RainSong'sBI-JM1000N2? Three words: loud, loud, and loud. And if that's not enough, it's also loud. This is the largest body RainSong builds. The sheer size, combined with the attributes of Projection Tuned Layering™ makes the JM one of the loudest acoustic guitars on the planet. This guitar is loud. We had to say it again. But the JM is not just about power. The narrow waist and some layering refinements specific to the Jumbo soundboard give the JM some real fingerstyle grace. The guitar is strong, but impeccably balanced, with bass, mids, and trebles distinct, clear, and, dare we say it again, loud.
The N2 neck is a "U" shaped profile that some reference to the 50's era Les Paul profile, it has enough meat on the neck to hold a firm grip while not having too much shoulder to make the player uncomfortable. This neck is deliberately made for this model as it aids the usual disability of acoustic guitars not being able to play fast, this neck plays with ease.
The LR Baggs Stage pro Element makes this the perfect guitar for couch jamming or live performance. There isn't a scenario you can throw at this guitar that it can't handle. Stage, studio, rehearsal, hold, cold, humid, dry.... RainSong Guitars for the win!
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!
