PRE OWNED: In great condition with little to no signs of wear.
This distinctive instrument is made entirely of carbon fibre graphite, an outstanding alternative to dwindling wood resources, with rich acoustic properties. It was constructed using RainSong's Projection Tuned Layering process, which greatly reduces the weight of the soundboard while increasing its overall stiffness and response, producing a clear, resonant sound.
The inherent stability and strength of graphite mean that this guitar will hold up well in all kinds of travel conditions and will stay in tune through changes in environment, so you can confidently take it on the road. And since graphite is an electrical conductor, when you plug in the WS1000, its warm acoustic sound will be beautifully amplified.
A few more important details: The WS1000 features a deep body with cutaway, chrome Schaller tuners, abalone rosette and inlays on the fretboard. Top-of-the-line Fishman electronics — an on-board blender system including a piezo pickup, a microphone, and a preamp — deliver a rich amplified sound.
RainSong are a USA based company originating from Hawaii - famed for carbon fibre guitars such as this. While they are expensive this material not only provides an environmentally friendly alternative to wood, the carbon fibre offers incredible advantages in terms of sound, weight, and durability. Warping necks, sharp fret ends, failing glue joints, lifting bridges, bellying soundboards, buzzing notes, wood cracks and other humidity-related issues are many of the problems that these guitars just don't suffer from due to the strength of the material.
