Hear Pete Madsen Play Our Custom RainSong WS1000

This custom 2000 RainSong WS1000 is from Acoustic Guitar magazine’s 10th Anniversary Collection. In celebration of our 30th anniversary in 2020, we’re putting our collection up for auction from April 20 through May 10, giving you the opportunity to bid on a piece of guitar history and support guitar education at the same time.

50% of the net proceeds of this auction will be donated to the Bill Collings Memorial Fund in support of guitar education in public schools and public programs. Plus, we’ll contribute $5 to the Collings Fund in the name of every bidder, whether they win at auction or not.


The estimated value range for the RainSong WS1000 is $2,000 to $3,000. What makes it special? The abalone veneer Acoustic Guitar anniversary logo is molded right into the back of the guitar. Under high temperature and pressure, graphite impregnated with epoxy molds itself around the veneer as it cures. When the body is ejected from the mold, the logo appears ‘inlaid’ into the graphite.

Check out the details and photo gallery.
