Rainsong V-PA1100NS Parlor Sized Acoustic Guitar w/ HSC


Categories: ,

Condition New


The Vintage Series embodies understated elegance.  The traditional aesthetics of a spruce top fused with a robust unidirectional carbon soundboard is finished with an amber tint and supplemented with simple appointments.

To combine the stability and robustness of carbon fiber with the traditional aesthetics of wood, RainSong has developed SFT: Soundboard Fusion Technology.  After careful experimentation, we are able to fuse a thin spruce soundboard and a unidirectional pre-impregnated carbon layer in a single molding step.  The resulting SFT soundboard is a composite matrix that resonates as a single unit, like a solid wood soundboard.  The physical properties of the carbon fiber far exceed those of the thin wood.  Hence the SFT soundboard maintains the imperviousness to humidity and temperature of carbon fiber.

An SFT soundboard delivers rich crystalline carbon sound subtly colored by wood.
The Parlor body combines the traditional compact shape with a modern Venetian cutaway for a perfectly proportioned intimate guitar with excellent access to the upper frets.  A lower bout of 13-1/3” and depth of 4-1/8” makes it RainSong’s smallest body.  The small size of the Parlor belies full and rich sound.

The standard NS neck joins the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th fret.   This moves the bridge back on the soundboard towards the center of the lower bout resulting in improved sonic energy from the strings to the soundboard and enhanced bass response. The NS also has a shorter scale length (24.875”) making it a more comfortable neck to hold and play.
