Nylon parlor 6-string with a 12-fret, short-scale NS neck, generous cutaway, and Fishman electronics.
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 NP12 features the 12-fret, short scale NS neck.
NP12'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.
The NP12 is a "crossover" instrument that allows steel string players to enjoy nylon tonality and the softer feel of nylon strings. The soundboard of the NP12 has been optimized for the reduced string tension of nylon strings.
