The RainSong Concert Hybrid CH-WS1000NS Acoustic-Electric Guitar pairs the best of the Concert and Hybrid Series instruments with RainSong's versatile WS shape and onboard electronics.

Crafted with the discerning performing guitarist in mind, the RainSong Concert Hybrid Series instruments combine the very best features of the entire RainSong family.

Great for a wide range of playing styles from strumming to fingerstyle, the RainSong Concert Hybrid CH-WS1000NS Acoustic-Electric Guitar sports RainSong's versatile WS shape, and is made using the warm, responsive unidirectional Carbon soundboard featured on the Concert Series along with the mellow Carbon/Glass body construction employed on the Hybrid Series line. Additionally, the CH-WS1000NS also features a short-scale neck and a 12-fret construction for outstanding comfort and playability.

The all-Carbon Fiber neck and composite fingerboard are fabricated utilizing RainSong's Performance Shape Casting as a single piece. The 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.

It boasts a beautiful high-gloss top finish, a smooth satin body and neck finish, and comes equipped with sleek black hardware including Gotoh tuners and a black Tusq nut, saddle, and bridge pins. Equipped with LR Baggs Element electronics, the Concert Hybrid CH-WS1000NS is the ultimate performer whether you're in the studio or on the stage. Includes hardshell case.

An amazing value for a high-end composite guitar

I already owned a Rainsong Shorty (OM body, now discontinued), but I wanted to get something just a bit bigger with more bass response. Lo and behold, Rainsong has a new Concert Hybrid line of instruments that features the bigger WS body shape, with unidirectional carbon fiber soundboard, and a matte finish on the back/sides/neck. And at an incredibly affordable price! Compared to my Shorty, which was something like $2000 street, the Concert Hybrid is a much better value, and still an incredibly well-made and well-playing instrument. In fact, I prefer the matte finish on the neck much more than the glossy finish on the Shorty's neck. The biggest change for the CH series, besides the matte finish (still glossy on top, it looks gorgeous), is the LR Baggs Element pickup and preamp, which is very easy to use and sounds like you would expect an acoustic-electric to sound. Came with a great hard shell case and Elixir strings, blackout hardware cosmetics, and some serious unplugged tone and punch! Plus I don't have to keep it in a case all winter (here in Montana) with a humidifier; I can keep it on the stand, play it anytime I feel like it, and it stays in tune far better than any wooden instrument I've ever owned. This guitar is a serious bargain, with no compromise on quality.
