Jim Redgate of Adelaide, Australia

  • Year:

    2005 - number 230 shown on the internal heel block. Signed and dated underneath the cedar front.

  • 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. The construction of the soundboard is single-thickness cedar supported by carbon fibre reinforced lattice.

  • Tuners:

    Fustero with synthetic, black pearl buttons

  • Scale:


  • Neck Width:

    51.5 mm at the nut. The neck has an adjustment mechanism.

  • Weight:

    2083 grams

  • Condition:

    The back, sides, neck & head are all in highly attractive condition with just the smallest of marks here and there. The front has quite noticeable nail marks mainly on the treble side, outside of the rosette (which can be seen in the 'Front' and 'Soundhole' pictures) and some minor areas of dulling of the finish.

  • 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, this is an opportunity to have a Redgate with reduced price tag.
