You are looking at a RainSong Al Petteway Special Edition APSE Acoustic-Electric Guitar, serial number 17554. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.RainSong Guitars teamed up esteemed acoustic guitarist, Al Petteway, to create a beautiful-sounding, superbly-playable instrument that will satisfy even the most discerning pro musicians. The Special Edition APSE Al Petteway model blends features from RainSong's Shorty model with specs and appointments that have been personally selected by the renowned artist himself.
Sporting RainSong's smallest, most refined OM body shape, the Al Petteway Special Edition features an all-graphite body and an all-graphite unidirectional carbon soundboard featuring RainSong's Projection Tuned Layering technique to produce a sweet, well-balanced, clear and warm acoustic voice. The smaller OM body and the 12-fret design gives the APSE a sound that makes this guitar ideal for fingerstyle players.
The 12-fret construction adds to the tonal warmth of this model while the neck's shorter scale length (24.875") allows for an exceptionally comfortable playing experience. The all-graphite NS neck and composite fingerboard are fabricated utilizing RainSong's Performance Shape Casting as a single piece. The specially-designed neck is not only comfortable and easy to play, but it offers low, fast action with no buzz & smooth playability and impeccable intonation with no dead spots. It's also stiff and sturdy, so the neck will never warp, bow or need adjustments. The truss rod in the neck is only there so that you can customize the neck relief to satisfy your individual preference.
Another unique feature that sets the APSE apart from the rest is the onboard LR Baggs Stage Pro Anthem Electronics. This system incorporates a pickup but also features an onboard microphone, allowing you to blend the two of them together to produce beautifully organic plugged-in acoustic sound. A set of Gotoh SGV510Z-L5-C tuning machines with a 1:21 gear ratio were chosen by Petteway for their accuracy, precision and performance.
Finally, as far as aesthetics go, Al Petteway prefers more of an old-school, simplistic styling. The APSE comes dressed in a more traditional tobacco burst UV protective satin urethane finish and the soundhole showcases a pinstripe rosette. Additionally, instead of the abalone shark inlays, the fingerboard is plain. Comes complete with a hardshell case.
