The Redwood JB1 Bass Guitar with Natural finish is a fantastic bass that doesn't just look pretty awesome, but plays like a dream and produces some incredibly lush tones. Beginners and advanced players alike will appreciate the comfortability and versatility offered by this superb model, and once you start playing, you'll struggle to stop. The Redwood JB1 is constructed with a unique offset-waist profile, and features a solid alder body, Canadian hard maple neck and fingerboard, and 2 tone-laden single-coil pickups. All brought together, the Redwood JB1 evokes a classic vibe with modern sensibilities, in a high quality and very affordable instrument.
Cool Alder Body
The Redwood JB1 is constructed from a lightweight alder tonewood, providing a healthy blend of high, mid and low frequencies to give you a broad tonal arsenal to play with. Alder is notably a great "all-rounder" tonewood, which can easily adapt to any particular style and makes it great for players who perform a diverse repertoire of musical styles. The Redwood JB1 is shaped to an offset-waist profile, making it very comfortable to play in both a seated or standing position. The natural grain of the alder is proudly displayed for all to see, which is complemented by a 3-ply black pickguard and chrome control panel.
Canadian Hard Neck and Fingerboard
Bolted onto the body of the Redwood JB-50 J Style Bass is a hard maple neck, which is both durable and comfortable. The neck profile is slender enough to navigate easily, whilst retaining a substantial feel for added reassurance. Thanks to the gloss finish, you can glide along with expert precision. Married to the neck is a matching Canadian hard maple fingerboard, which is home to 20-frets that are adorned with black block position inlays. The maple/maple partnership infuses each note with a sparkling clarity, which provides a subtle edge to the softer alder.
The Redwood JB1 is equipped with two single-coil pickups, which work perfectly with the alder body to generate a wide range of tones that are suited to blues, jazz. rock 'n' roll, hard rock - you get the idea. Each pickup is controlled with a volume control knob, so you can create your own blend of each pickup for an overall tone. There is a master tone knob that controls the overall output, allowing you to tweak the sound to your liking.
The headstock is fitted with open-style tuning machines in a four-in-line arrangement, offering easy adjustment over each string whilst upholding tuning integrity with precision. Nut provides a firm seat for each string to uphold string placement and tension, working dutifully in partnership with the tuning machines. Fitted to the body is a vintage-style bridge, which provides a seamless connection between the strings and body.

- Stunning Instrument.
The construction of the maple neck is solid and feels great. The construction of the body is good. I have played many other bass guitars that are heavier, but overall I like it, it's different.
It won't break the bank and it's the closest thing to a Fender Jazz Bass sound in my opinion.
Thank you Dawsons Music and Redwood for providing me with an amazing instrument.
