I just bought a Rainsong JM1000 recently and figured I would share it to give this guitar a little more exposure. I had decided to make the purchase after reading several posts from Erik Mongrain. In case you are unaware, Rainsongs are made completely of Carbon Fiber which has many advantages. Here is a link to a video I made if you want to check the guitar out.

Don't hesitate if you have any questions about this model! Can't recommend it enough!

Very impressive playing. Really. and that guitar sounds pretty nice for being something that's not made out of wood...And it looks pretty cool too. I must say, HNGD! (and nice playing!)

I'm quite jealous! When I first started playing guitar, that was one of the guitars I really wanted. Congrats on your acquisition!

Sure. I ordered it off of Musicians Friends because I wanted something that hadn't been played in the stores. It was about $2000 after a couple online discounts that were happening at the time.

That's not bad. Normal price is like $2400ish?

I think its normally $2250. And nope no bracing inside. So the sound is very full and resonant. Plus the guitar is so light.

Did you try out any other Rainsongs?

Nope, unfortunately I live in an area that doesn't have a good guitar shop that carried Rainsongs. So I ended up doing a lot of research and decided on that particular model.

I played some Composite Acoustics, which are Rainsong's main rivals for carbon fibre guitars. Those things are a bit on the heavier side(which really surprised me). But then I lifted a HPL Martin, which is essentially a ton of bricks, so it wasn't that bad.

Dang man, that thing is GORGEOUS. I've also always been curious how one of those would sound. Definately kicks the crap out of the most popular composite guitar brand's (Ovation) tone. Very cool.

i played one of these a few times - overall very nice. not as much bass as i expected from the size, but good tone. also totally unaffected by dryness and humidity, which is a plus. congrats!

My GC here in Scottsdale has one, but the set up on it sucks. I am not sure why but the whole guitar sounds terrible. Yours on the other hand sounds amazing.
