Jim Redgate of Adelaide, Australia

  • Year:

    2007 - no. 276

  • Body:

    Premium quality rosewood in an arched, braceless construction - with very attractive colours and figuring. High gloss finish.

  • Front:

    Canadian cedar with a fine-detailed rosette, padauk bridge with decorated tie-block having 12-hole tie system. The construction of the soundboard is single-thickness cedar supported by carbon fibre reinforced lattice.

  • Tuners:

    Schaller with white buttons

  • Scale:


  • Neck Width:

    53 mm at the nut

  • Weight:

    1791 grams

  • Condition:

    In highly attractive condition. Back, sides, neck, head - all in new condition. The front has a mark on the lower bout edge - seen in the 'Front' photo ... and an area by the soundhole that is more glossy than the rest of the soundboard. Other than that, in great shape.

  • Comments:

    This is a fine Redgate lattice guitar with strong, immediate sounds and good projection. These are much lighter than many Australian guitars yet have a lot of power and vibrancy. Played by many professionals, they offer a sense of security to the performer yet can sound much nearer to the traditional guitars than many other lattice instruments.
    Priced well below a new one - and remembering the inclusion of a Karura case, this should be a good opportunity.
