Should any of you acoustic players want to know my comparative thoughts (between the 2), just ask. I do believe these carbon guitars are the wave of the future and neck aside, I'm enjoying this Rainsong in big fashion. A little brighter in sound than I had hoped (compared to wood), but getting use to it now and found the difference ialmost unnoticeable when plugged in.
With the scarcity of Brazilian Rosewood (my preferred wood for back & sides) I wound up building my acoustic Guitar with Indian Rosewood.
I scalloped the top inside bracing ( pre- WW 2 Martin style) and it helped to give it a little more boom, and I've noticed that the more I play it, the more I can hear it finding it's voice.
I have 4 other acoustic guitars guitar's and a mandolin hanging on my living room wall.
I will be including a Tacoma Chief ( if I can find one that isn't overpriced)
As you can ascertain, I'm obviously hung up on wood, because of the variable tonalities that each of my instruments produce, but that's not to say that I'm not open, and curious about the voice that the Rainsong may produce, but, I would have to be dazzled out of my socks to put up the money to buy one though.
