What is a really durable guitar?

by Rusty
(Davidson, NC)

I play out at least 2 times a week and have a 5 piece band. We play Americana/Bluegrass, mostly original. On stage I play a 2007 Martin HD28V, 1986 Washburn D20 and a 1998 Guild D30. I really pound my guitars (mostly the Martin) and am having trouble with intonation, neck adjustments etc.

I'm in the market for a new guitar that I can really get on when we are performing. $$$ is not as important as something that will hold up under my style of play. I use D'Addario EXP lights on all my guitars.

When one uses the words 'durable' and 'guitar' in the same sentence, one is apt to cause a few raised eyebrows. Rainsong is the only way to fly....these guitars are all carbon fibre. They're virtually impervious to extremes in temperature and fluctuations in relative humidity as well as being structurally sound. Their tone is different...quite unique, in fact. I'm a known 'Seagull' nut, but if I wanted a really tough, attractive axe with VOLUME PLUS....I'd be buying a Rainsong. There is nothing else...
