The Redwood TL-Mini Electric Guitar in Natural is an awesome model that is perfect for beginners and young players who are taking their first steps in picking up an instrument. Combining sublime tonewoods with a solid build quality, the TL-Mini is an outstanding guitar that boasts a robust output that is perfect for laying down chunky riffs and smooth licks. The scaled-down dimensions of the TL-Mini means that those who find full-size models cumbersome, will appreciate the shorter neck scale length, and slimmer profile.
Cool alder body
The body of TL-Mini has been shaped to an instantly recognisable single-cutaway profile, with a solid body that imparts a robust and confident playing feel. The slender curves of the body allows it to rest comfortably against yours as you perform, ensuring that you will adore performing with your TL-Mini.
The body is built using alder, a tonewood that is favoured by many manufacturers thanks to its exquisitely balanced timbre. Boasting a tonal arsenal that produces softly rounded lows, chunky mids with plenty of punch, and sparkling highs, alder is suited to a huge range of musical styles from smooth blues to heavy rock. As well as boasting an enviable tonal range, alder is also a very lightweight wood, lending itself beautifully to the TL-Mini's comfortable playability.
Canadian hard maple neck
Redwood has employed a bolt-on construction method to fit the Canadian hard maple neck to the body. The benefit of this is that it guarantees a solid rigidity that makes the neck firm and supportive for the fretting hand, as well as transferring the energy from the strings with maximum efficiency. The back of the neck has been treated to a matte finish, preventing unwanted stickiness from affecting the playability of the neck. Married to the neck is a 22-fret maple fingerboard, with dot position inlays to guide your way. Maple creates a responsive feel, whilst holding up well to consistent playing so that you can pick up and play anytime.
The TL-Mini is equipped with a pair of single-coil pickups that are fitted in the neck and bridge positions. Each pickup offers a smooth output at low volumes, breaking up a little bit to produce a sizzle and bite when cranked up. The pickups are fantastic for performing bluesy rock, tight and articulate country, loose jazz licks, aggressive hard rock, and cheeky funks chops - whatever you want to play, the TL-Mini will happily perform spectacularly. Alternatively, you can dial is back and appreciate the smoothness of the output with exceptional clarity throughout.
Control over the pickups comes in the form of single master volume and tone controls, with a three-way pickup selector switch that enables you to select either pickup individually, or combine the output of both for a wider and fuller sounding output.
Hardware and finish
The headstock is fitted with sealed die-cast tuning machines, which secure strings firmly so that once you have set your desired tuning, it remains that way throughout each and every performance. The body is home to a vintage-style steel bridge, which creates a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain. The body is finished in an understated yet stylish natural, with 3-ply tortoise pickguard protecting the top around the pickups and upper bout.
