Industry Leading Acoustic-Electric Carbon Fiber Guitar That Will Never Warp or Show Signs of Environmental Damage
The traditional workhorse of the concert acoustic guitar category, the Rainsong Dreadnought DR1000N2 acoustic-electric guitar is the result of a collaboration between legendary guitarist Steve Miller and master luthier John Bolin and available in a left handed version in limited quantities. Crafted from a fusion of high-tech materials, this elite graphite guitar has all of the warm tone of a traditional professional-grade acoustic without the danger of warping, cracking or damage from temperature or humidity regardless of environmental conditions.
Featuring a wide and deep graphite body, RainSong’s Dreadnought DR1000N2 delivers powerful bass and bright, ringing treble that brings a warm and balanced rhythm sound to any musical arrangement. Perfect for country ensemble playing, where banjos and mandolins compete in the treble register, the RainSong Dreadnought’s unidirectional carbon soundboard crafted using RainSong's projection tuned layering technique that closely mimics the tone and grain of fine spruce, delivering finely articulated leads and bright, ringing rhythm tones with a dynamic range that is unprecedented in the concert acoustic category.
The special N2 neck is the crowning achievement of Miller and Bolin’s collaboration. Based on a modified ‘U’ profile popular since the 1950‘s, the neck and fingerboard are made from carbon fiber and a composite material that does not bow or warp due to humidity or temperature. Despite this fact, RainSong has equipped the neck with an adjustable truss rod that is accessible from the headstock, allowing each player to customize the neck to their exact playing preferences.
The electronics include RainSong’s Fishman Prefix acoustic matrix undersaddle pickup with onboard preamp, a super quiet undersaddle pickup with EQ slider controls for volume, bass, treble and semi-parametric countour, as well as a phase switch amd notch filter to prevent feedback. The Fishman Prefix also comes equipped with a chromatic tuner that can be used without plugging-in. A 9-volt battery provides up to 150 hours of play time.
