Though the technology behind the RainSong Black Ice Series BI-OM1000N2 acoustic-electric guitar is modern, this versatile instrument is capable of producing immensely rich sound to rival the most respected traditionally made acoustics. The all-graphite top employs RainSong's Projection Tuned Layering technology that eliminates bracing to give the top unparalleled response. The abalone rosette offers a traditional cosmetic touch.
The RainSong BI-OM1000N2 Orchestra Model is the most refined of all RainSong shapes. It is our most comfortable and intimate guitar, with an immediacy of presence that makes it a favorite with the coffee house crowd. The treble, already a breathtaking attribute of RainSongs, and the carbon sound are simply sublime in this little guitar. A crystal bell clarity, balance, superb separation of individual notes, and an expansive dynamic range make the OM one of our most individually expressive guitars. Because of Projection Tuned Layering™, the OM is capable of strong projection. It won't rattle windows like the Jumbo or the Dreadnought, but the OM, when driven, packs a lot of power and punch for a small bodied guitar. .
While the N2 guitar neck has a more substantial feel than the original RainSong 6-string neck, it is ergonomically sound and actually results in better transfer of string vibration energy to the soundboard. The N2 neck features a truss rod that is accessible from the headstock. Because graphite does not warp or bow with changes in humidity and temperature, the purpose of a truss rod in this RainSong N2 neck is to allow you to customize the relief to suit your playing preferences.Includes a RainSong hardshell case.
