Jim Redgate of Adelaide, Australia

  • Year:

    2007 - no. 265

  • 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:

    Gotoh with black buttons.

  • Scale:

    65cm. 19 frets.

  • Neck Width:

    52 mm at the nut.

  • Weight:

    1978 grams

  • Condition:

    In extremely good condition - no repairs, no cracks, no significant marks or scratches. There are two or three very small and insignificant marks on the edge of the front and an area where the normally dull finish is a little more shiny through right arm contact. Other than that - very close to condition as new.

  • Comments:

    This is a fine Redgate lattice guitar with strong, immediate sounds and good projection. These are lighter than many other Australian guitars yet have a lot of power and vibrancy. Played by many professionals such as Ana Vidivic, 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 - yet in fine condition, this should be a good opportunity.
