Al Petteway Rainsong Guitar - Graphite OM 12 Fret Carbon - APSE
About This Rainsong Guitar
Rainsong Al Petteway Special Edition Acoustic Electric Guitar
For the APSE, Al Petteway chose the OM size body because it is the perfect size for solo fingerstyle guitar players. The frequency response is evenly balanced across the strings and the high strings have a sweetness that doesn't happen with a larger guitar. It's very easy to mix in an ensemble or duet setting as well. Since Al plays with his wife Amy White much of the time, he likes to set up her guitar to produce the big bass bottom while he fills in more of the mids and highs. It makes for a very clean sound.
