The Hybrid Series combines the best qualities of Carbon fiber and Glass fiber construction. Glass fibers soften the crystalline Carbon tone to provide a mellow yet resonant sound, all at an attractive price point. The Dreadnought is the traditional workhorse of acoustic guitar music. With a large, deep body and wide waist, RainSong's DR has the powerful bass and ringing treble of a great rhythmic guitar, but still maintains a wonderfully balanced sound, with clear distinction among individual notes. From rhythm to lead, the DR makes its presence known. Capable of cutting through admirably in any acoustic setting, the DR is loud enough to compete with banjoes, mandolins and other traditional volume hogs. The N2 neck is a result of an extensive, long-term collaboration with the renowned artist Steve Miller (www.stevemillerband.com) and Master Luthier John Bolin (www.bolinguitars.com). The neck design is based on a modified "U" profile that has been popular in guitars since the 1950s. The N2 has a substantial feel that is ergonomically sound and 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.

Here is a quote from the Winfield Flatpicking Champion, Jeff Troxel who just took delivery of his Red Sky Deluxe-
The Red Sky Deluxe is a spectacular guitar in every way. It has a wonderful, lively resonance that lends itself to many styles of music. From fingerstyle to flatpicking, and from jazz to swing, this guitar can truly do it all.
Ryan’s impeccable workmanship, attention to detail, and aesthetic choices place him solidly among the very best luthiers of our day. The Red Sky Deluxe is a guitar that looks both backward and forward at the same time. The general design gives a tip of the hat to the Loar-era Gibsons, but with a more comfortable neck, more resonant tone, and all-wood trim and pick guard.
If you’re the kind of player who likes to have one foot standing in tradition and the other stepping out into new directions, you’ll love this guitar. It’s also one of the most beautiful instruments you’ll ever see.
