Meticulously crafted to be unique in design and unique in tone.

The Rainsong Black Ice Series BIJM1000N2 Graphite Acoustic-Electric Guitar embodies Artistry. Each instrument is unique. The soundboard on each guitar is meticulously crafted to achieve an aesthetically pleasing appearance without overbuilding it. Each soundboard is individually conceived so every guitar is unique. Unique in design and unique in tone.

How do you describe RainSong's JM? Three words: loud, loud, and loud. This is the largest body RainSong builds. The sheer size, combined with the attributes of Projection Tuned Layering make the JM one of the loudest acoustic guitars on the planet. But the JM is not just about power. The narrow waist and some layering refinements specific to the Jumbo soundboard give the JM some real fingerstyle grace. The guitar is strong, but impeccably balanced, with bass, mids and trebles distinct, clear and loud.

The N2 neck is a result of an extensive, long-term collaboration with the renowned artist Steve Miller and Master Luthier John Bolin. The neck design is based on a modified "U" profile that has been popular in guitars since the 1950s. While the N2 has a substantial feel, it is ergonomically sound and actually results in better transfer of string vibration energy to the soundboard. The N2 features a truss rod that is accessible from the head stock. Graphite does not warp or bow with changes in humidity and temperature. The purpose of a truss rod in the N2 is to allow customization of the relief to suit individual preferences. Includes case.

  • A Fine, Beautiful Guitar

    As reviewed by Don Czon on 7/17/2011

    As a result of living in hot, dry Albuquerque, all 3 of my acoustic guitars each have some warping problem. That is what got me looking at synthetic body guitars; I had heard of Rainsong and I was impressed by what I found on the website, so I decided to take a chance (at least some chance, but I had 30 days to return.) I ordered the guitar on Friday, July 2nd, got a holiday sale discount, but paid a little extra to have it shipped overnight, Saturday delivery, to my local Guitar Center. When I opened the box in the store, I was impressed by the case but was really struck by how beautiful it is, still am. It wasn't quite tuned to concert pitch like they advertised, but it was pretty close, and to anyone who has ever shipped or travelled with a wood guitar, that just isn?t done! That fact alone tells me they have a lot of confidence in their work and materials, that they are strong and will stay true. The N2 neck is beefy, a bit thicker than I expected, but it does make it feel like an old, 1920?s or 30?s guitar. I have to stretch just a bit more to get my left thumb wrapped around to get low F, but I?ll get used to it. It is nice and light, as light as my dreadnought, and the gentle radius where the sides meet the back is really very comfortable. The big question is, How does it sound? It sounds a bit different than wood, but it sounds great. The treble tones are very warm, sounding a little bit like nylon (think Willie Nelson) but the punch is nice for the mids and bass. It?s different, but good. I don?t amplify much, so I am not too familiar with the controls on the Fishman Prefix Plus-T, and I was disappointed by the instruction booklet that came with the tuner. Especially a slider they label ?Contour? but in the booklet call ?Middle?, which is it? Either way, I will figure it out because this guitar is going to be my number one; I?ll sell two of the three I have, (I'm not a collector) I don? t know what I?ll do yet with the Martin. When it comes time to get another guitar, I will definitely consider another Rainsong, but I really don?t expect that to happen for quite some time. Don in Albuquerque
