Blackbird Rider Nylon String

The Blackbird Rider Nylon String is a carbon fiber unibody acoustic classical guitar. The deviations from the classical design are immediately obivious: the carbon fiber construction, the body shape and the location of the sound hole. The top side of the oblong body attaches to the neck at the tenth fret, where the "Soundscoop" soundhole is also located. This arrangement is said to increase the volume of the instrument.

RAINSONG

Rainsong is an innovative acoustic guitar manufacturer currently based in Woodinville, Washington. The company makes high-end carbon fibre bodied acoustics and acoustic electrics. Their model include nylon string guitars, 12-string guitars, and a jazz archtop. Later models have a bi-directional weave and slightly better cosmetic appearance, due to changes in their carbon fibre production technique (which Rainsong call Projection Tuned Layering). The production technique and materials mean that the outer skin of the guitar is very strong, and traditional internal bracing seen on wooden acoustics is largely unneccesary.
