The best of all worlds. Designed with the performing artist in mind, the Concert Hybrid series harmoniously blends the best features from all the RainSong lines. The warm and responsive unidirectional Carbon soundboard from the Concert Series, the mellow Carbon/Glass body construction from the Hybrid Series, and the intimate short-scale 12-fret neck. The stunning high-gloss finish on the soundboard is complemented by a visually pleasing satin body and the comfortable playability of a satin neck. Blacked-out appointments give the Concert Hybrid series instruments an understated yet distinctly suave appearance. RainSong's most refined body shape, a unidirectional soundboard, hybrid body construction and a short scale 12-fret neck -- the perfect combination for an intimate instrument with a warm tone and surprising punch.

• Impervious to humidity and temperature variations. No wood used in guitar-construction. No humidifier required.
• RainSong's most refined thin-body (OM).
• 24.9" scale length, 12-frets clear of the body neck for an intimate playability and feel.
• All-Carbon fiber soundboard construction for the signature crystalline RainSong tone. Carbon fiber and glass fiber body construction for a mellower tone and better affordability.
• LR Baggs Stagepro Element electronics.
• Hardshell case.
• Clear Carbon high gloss finished soundboard. Hand-rubbed satin finish on body and neck.

Closest StoreNorth Vancouver, British Columbia
I recently purchased the Rainsong CH-OM specifically for use while I am working out of town. I work 2 out of three weeks away from home, and besides it playing great (adjustable truss rod allows for preferred set up) and sounding great with DR strings, it?s also a nice feeling knowing that I can leave this guitar in relatiivly poor storage conditions (VERY dry and cold here) which would typically cause concern if I Ieft my Larrivee PV-09, early Epiphone Texan, or any other wooden acoustic in. Sure, there are humidipacks and other in-case humidifier tech out there, but I am very happy with all aspects my recent worry free purchase. I am neither a tone snob or wood expert, but I do know what I like about certain guitars and how they make me feel while playing. It sounds good, plays nicely with others, and certainly raised a lot of eyebrows here. The Rainsong CH-OM fits my playing requirements and I feel good about being able to leave my wooden acoustics at home in a controlled environment. I like my Rainsong enough that I am considering purchasing the parlour version for easier travel (in hind sight, I probably should have purchased the parlor first, but I got too excited when I finally found a 12 fret, OM, cut away impervious to the elements), and leaving the OM at home in the studio, adding a little flavour to the mix. However, the process of producing these types of guitars is still rather expensive, hence the +2k$ price, so I'll probably have to wait a bit. And it comes with a very nice case t'boot. CHEERS

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 flat rate up to $2,000 of current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years.
  • BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
  • WOODWINDS: 4% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
