Lightweight Basswood Body
The Redwood R1Q body has been crafted using basswood, a lightweight tonewood that is produces a balanced output with generous sustain. The low-end is tight and responsive, whilst the mids flow freely, and the highs produce a softened upper character to deliver a full-sounding timbre. The flat top design is accentuated by a slightly rolled upper bout, which creates the perfect resting position for the picking arm. The heavenly quilted maple top creates a sumptuous visual aesthetic, which is shrouded by a sophisticated transparent red burst finish. Around the body edge is a cool white binding, which complements the quilted maple beautifully.
Canadian Maple Neck
Paired with the body using a bolt-on joint is a 3-piece Canadian hard maple neck. The neck is shaped to a wide, slim profile to ensure a generous playground for your fingers to explore. The smooth finish encourages a fast playing feel, so whether you're looking to execute some solid down-picked chugging, elaborate sweeps, deft legato, two-handed tapping, or strum freely, your hands can move unimpeded. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous 24-fret blackwood fingerboard, which is home to triangle position inlays to guide your way in style.
The Redwood R1Q is equipped with a pair of humbuckers, one each in the neck and bridge positions. Control comes in the form of a master volume pot, a master tone pot, and a three-way pickup selector switch. The range of tones that can be pulled from this set-up will blow you away, translating the expressive and versatile character of the basswood perfectly. 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 smooth tremolo bridge that allows you to smoothly and precisely control the vibrato over all strings.
