Just picked up a new acoustic guitar, one I had been wanting for quite some time. I recently moved back to Seattle, to take a significant career bump, and found myself in the neighborhood of A# Music Company, a high end boutique store in the Renton/Kent area. I hadn't intended to buy anything, but inquired if they were a Rainsong dealer. The sales guy said no, but they had one on consignment. Without so much as seeing the guitar, I knew I was about to be eating Top Ramen for the next week.
The sales rep produced a mint condition Rainsong Black Ice jumbo, model BI-JM1000N2, at an absolute sweetheart of a deal.
For those who are not familiar with this guitar manufacturer, they are based in Woodinville, and build top quality acoustic guitars mostly from carbon fiber, with steel frets and tuning pegs, plus a composite nut. The resulting instrument is mind blowingly articulate sounding, and really gives the Martin & Co and Taylors of the world a run for their money. I own a Gibson Les Paul and Custom Shop Fender Am. Deluxe Strat, and this is an order magnitude finer than either of those instruments.
It was like Deja Vu. I bought the Strat at this same shop, for a similarly, absurdly low price, back in 2007.
What do guys play on? Post your instruments!
