Been wanting one of these for a while:

Rainsong CH-PA

12-fret, 24-7/8" scale length.
Same body size as my Larrivee Parlor, but deeper (and tapered).  I understand the newer Larrivees are deeper though.

Love the blacked-out look and the virtual imperviousness to humidity (or lack thereof), though I like the Larrivee neck a bit better.

Very nice. The longer scale length should help the tone and volume - I've always thought one of the weaknesses of the Larrivee parlors was their 24" scale length. But that's just me and my limited experience, I guess...

How's the tone of the Rainsong? I'm very happy with the tone of my Emerald.

Tone is clear and somewhat direct.  I haven't pulled of the stock 80/20 strings and put my preferred  PBs on yet though.

Me neither ... mine also came with 80/20 (Elixers), and next I tried Martin Retros. Next string change will likely be PB's.
