Woodinville, WA (January 5, 2011) -- RainSong Graphite Guitars is introducing the Studio Series, a new line of composite guitars for the working musician in the studio and on the road. Featuring a tough, non-glossy Fine Texture finish, these instruments scale back on flashy appointments to deliver the signature RainSong sound and playability in a rugged, road-worthy package.
Like all other RainSongs, the Studio Series uses Projection Tuned Layering for the
crystal detail, warmth and volume of the classic carbon sound. According to RainSong, the instruments are,
"bright, balanced and punchy – capable of cutting through in any acoustic setting." The
neck is made of Carbon fiber. The body features a combination of Carbon and Glass
fiber, similar to the Hybrid Series introduced a year ago. Glass fibers soften the
crystalline carbon tone to provide a mellow but resonant sound.
The Studio Series features the new N2 neck. This neck is a result of an extensive long-term
collaboration with the renowned artist Steve Miller and master luthier John Bolin.
While the N2 has a more substantial feel than the original RainSong 6-string neck, it is
ergonomically sound and actually results in better transfer of string vibrational energy to
the soundboard. The N2 features a truss rod that is accessible from the headstock.
Graphite does not warp or bow with changes in humidity and temperature. The purpose
of a truss rod in the N2 is to allow customization of the fingerboard relief to individual
