Jim Redgate of Adelaide, Australia

  • Year:

    2007 - no. 269. Signed on the label and underneath the soundboard.

  • Body:

    Premium quality rosewood in an arched, braceless construction - with very attractive colours and figuring. High gloss finish.
    Including Stephan Schlemper pickup system and free-standing amplification system.

  • 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:

    Rodgers with engraved sideplates and ebony buttons

  • Scale:

    65cm. With 20th fret.

  • Neck Width:

    52 mm at the nut.

  • Weight:

    1954 grams - including the Schlemper microphone pick-up and internal light-weight cabling.

  • Condition:

    In very good condition - no repairs and no cracks. There are just a few playing marks on the treble side of the playing area and one noticeable mark between the bridge & armrest - and a mark behind the head. As is usual with the matt finish on the front, some areas more than others become a little more shiny through contact. Altogether looking very good.

  • Comments:

    This time, with all the high-spec options including amplification, here is a another 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.
    With Rodgers tuners, Karura case with outer cover and with the Schlemper amplification system included, this complete professional's package is a good opportunity and sensibly-priced.
