The Redwood RB150 Bass Guitar is a great model for those who’re beginning their musical journey.
Body and Neck
The body has been crafted using solid alder, giving the RB150 a dense, resounding tone. This gives the bass a solid midrange power, making it a great all-rounder for turning your hand to a wide range of musical styles. Alder also benefits from having an impressive level of sustain due to its densely packed grain structure, but remains lightweight enough to make the RB150 a joy to play. The body – and matching headstock – have been finished in a crisp white. The neck provides the perfect support to run your fretting hand along. Paired with the neck is a rosewood fingerboard that is home to an impressive 24-frets, giving you a two-octave playground to lay down some serious fretwork.
The RB150 electric bass is comes with a split single-coil pickup in the middle position, and a P-bass single-coil in the bridge position. The timbre of the alder is delivered clearly by the pickup pairing. Control comes in the form of a master tone pot, and individual volume controls for each pickup. By using the controls a wide range of tone can be extracted to play with. Using the output of the split single-coil in the middle position independently, the fat, uncompressed tone of the body, neck and fingerboard combination is delivered with a robust and forceful attack. Soloing the output of the bridge pickup gives a much tighter response with heavy emphasis on the upper frequency range, and greater articulation in the attack of each note. By combining both pickups a more complete sound image of the bass is fulfilled.
The RB150 has been fitted with a fixed bridge to keep strings locked in position securely, reinforcing the stable playing feel. The tuning machines hold each string securely, ensuring that the tuning will only change when you choose to make an adjustment.
If you’re looking for a beginner’s bass guitar that is quite forgiving in its response, then the Redwood RB150 bass guitar is a fantastic choice. With an impressive two-octave range across four strings, and a pickup arrangement that suits a wide range of musical styles, this bass allows you to develop and flex your creative muscles in style.
