Description

Summary: This guitar has been built with the traditional classic R-Body size and shape. The Top and Back are made with a maple laminate, very similar to the way this style of guitar was built many years ago. The Sides are made from solid book-matched hard maple. The neck is made of maple as well and is fit with an East Indian Rosewood Fretboard with wire frets. The headstock overlay is also made of Rosewood. This is a very versatile resophonic guitar. The laminate top and back give a tone that harkens back to the sound of resophonic guitars from decades ago, but the more modern open internal construction gives this guitar a bit more of a "modern" sound. It has plenty of volume and great tonal properties

Body: Laminated Maple top/back, Solid book matched Hard Maple sides with F-holes, Nitrocellulose satin lacquer over a Vintage Brown Stain.

Neck: Maple with a Rosewood fingerboard, East Indian Rosewood headstock overlay, 25” scale length, bone nut.

Pickups/Hardware: Traditional Resophonic Guitar Style Chrome tailpiece, Special Alloy RLR Spider, Vintage Quarterman Cone, Open Structure (Cone Support on top, traditional guitar ladder bracing on back, six captive wooden struts between top and back), Screened Rings Chrome sound holes.

Cosmetics: This guitar shows very little signs of use. There a few very small dings on the back of the body (See Photos Please). Overall, this guitar is in great condition and it sounds great.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 12’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Modifications: This guitar was sent to Redline in Tennesee for service. (Tightened Neck)

Weight: 5.98 lbs.

Case: This guitar ships without a case, but we will package it professionally and it will be fully insured.
