The Redwood G1 Goth Electric Guitar in Matt Black is a cool and collected model that combines smooth, slender body lines, a fast playing neck, versatile pickups, resilient hardware and an understated finish. Whether you're just starting out on your musical journey, or have many years’ experience under your fingers, this model feels comfortable and familiar in any player's hands.
Cool Archtop Body
The Redwood G1 ties together form and function beautifully, with a super slender archtop body profile, with contoured grooves and bevelled edge to create a delightful figure-hugging feel. The lightweight design means that wielding this superb guitar never feels taxing. The body is built using mahogany, which delivers substantial mid to low end power that is filled with warmth with buckets of warmth and carefully measured highs. Completing the striking aesthetic is a delightful matt black finish.
Lighting Fast Neck
Connected to the body is a 3-piece Canadian hard maple neck, which is shaped to a fast playing slim, wide profile. The benefits of this neck design means that you have the perfect platform for making rapid transitions across the strings. The finish allows you to move smoothly without tackiness from impeding your movement along the neck. Whether you're looking to execute some solid down-picked chugging, elaborate sweeps, deft legato, two-handed tapping, or strumming, your hand will feel at home along this supple support. Paired with the neck is a smooth and responsive 24-fret blackwood fingerboard with offset white dot position inlays and a 12th fret marker.
Versatile Electronics Setup
The Redwood G1 is equipped with a humbucker in the bridge position, and two single-coils fitted in the middle and neck positions. Control comes in the form of a master volume pot, a master tone pot, and a five-way pickup selector switch. The range of tones that can be pulled from this set-up will blow you away, translating the warmth of the mahogany alongside the crispness of the maple/blackwood partnership sweetly. Whether played with the volume rolled back for subtlety, or cranked up to deliver a gritty and overdriven tone, you won't be disappointed by the roaring power of these beauties.
The headstock is home to hardworking sealed die-cast tuning machines, which dutifully uphold tuning integrity throughout each and every performance. Fitted to the body is a TR-3 tremolo bridge that allows you to smoothly and precisely control the vibrato over all strings.

Second of all. Good lord, If I could do dirty things to it I would....
Build quality is far better than expected! The finish is even and without nasty, gritty sandpaper like parts you'd usually find on a cheaper guitar.
Would HIGHLY recommend this to any guitarist young or old, The current set up is nice and suits new players to a T, More experienced guitarists may want to swap the pick-ups out for something a bit more fancy but it's not a "must do".
Fairly lightweight with a skinny neck and mahogany body??? Witchcraft I tell you.
The quality is high for the price and sounds great.
Great purchase for a new / broke player. Had to tune but no issues there.
Thank you Dawsons!!
