You are looking at a RainSong Black Ice BI-OM1000N2 Orchestra Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 17145. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Artistry in guitar craft at its finest, the RainSong Black Ice Series instruments are all as unique as a fingerprint or snowflake--no two instruments will look or sound exactly the same. The soundboard on each instrument is individually conceived and painstakingly crafted to offer a truly unique and exquisite look without overbuilding it.

The smallest of the RainSong body shapes, the Orchestra Black Ice Series BI-OM1000N2 is a great choice if you seek comfort without sacrificing projection. An all-graphite body and an all-graphite "Black Ice" soundboard featuring RainSong's Projection Tuned Layering technique give this small-bodied guitar its unbelievable sonic horsepower and strong projection. Tonally, the OM produces a gorgeous top-end while offering superb balance, note-to-note articulation, and clarity. The unique top bears a thick rosette in shimmering abalone that really stands out on this all-black instrument. While all-wood acoustics tend to change in different environments, the stable all-graphite construction makes the BI-OM1000N2 impervious to climate changes.

The all-graphite N2 neck and composite fingerboard are fabricated utilizing RainSong's Performance Shape Casting as a single piece. The specially-designed neck is not only comfortable and easy to play, but it offers low, fast action with no buzz & smooth playability and impeccable intonation with no dead spots. It's also stiff and sturdy, so the neck will never warp, bow or need adjustments. The truss rods in the neck are only there so that you can customize the neck relief to satisfy your individual preferences. Custom abalone shark inlays complement the abalone rosette beautifully.

For superior plugged-in performance and sound, the BI-OM1000N2 comes fitted with Fishman Prefix+ T electronics. Other premium features include a UV protective, high-gloss, clear urethane finish, a set of chrome-plated Gotoh 1:18 ratio tuning machines, and a Tusq nut, saddle and bridge pins. Ships inside of a durable customized hardshell case.
