The small size of the Parlor belies full and rich sound. A sound that Is characteristic of all RainSongs. Key to the big Parlor sound is the combination of a unidirectional carbon soundboard and hybrid body construction. The P12 features the 12-fret, short-scale NS neck.

The RainSong P12's neck joins the body at the 12th fret rather than the 14th fret. This moves the bridge back on the soundboard towards the center of the lower bout resulting in improved sonic energy transmission from the strings to the soundboard and enhanced bass response.

Unidirectional carbon mimics the tight grain of a fine Spruce soundboard. First introduced on the Concert Series, this soundboard is RainSong's lightest. The Hybrid body technology blends the crystalline highs of carbon with the mellow tones of glass. The synergy between the unidirectional soundboard and the hybrid body is obvious in the parlor sound.

    Comments about RainSong P12 6-String Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    What other guitar could you leave in the snow, come back out the next day, and it's still intonated or even in one piece? None. Carbon fiber is great for the gigging musician or for someone who needs a "beater" guitar. Does it sound as great as it is durable? Well it depends how you define sound? Does it sound like wood? Sort of, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything to me. I have never been a person who needs the traditional; I prefer forward thinking. The one characteristic that separates carbon fiber from wood is added bite and mids. However, it is true that when wood guitars get older they sound better, with a carbon fiber guitar this will not happen. Carbon will sound the same today as it will in 30 years. Give one of these little guys a shot, it may be your thing!
