The Redwood R3 Electric Guitar in Purple Sunburst is a divine model that boasts premium appointments, a stunning finish, and heavenly playing feel, yet comes at a highly affordable price. The delicately crafted curves are matched by solid construction, creating a guitar that is great for practising on, hitting the studio with, and taking to the stage.

Slender Alder Body

The Redwood R3 body has been crafted using alder, a lightweight tonewood that is favoured due to its balanced timbre and comfortable playing feel. The carved body shape combines delicately sloping bouts and bevelled edges, which offer a supportive resting position for the picking arm, and the ability to move with speed. The deep double-cutaways encourage greater access to the upper frets to guarantee total freedom across the neck. Completing the striking appearance is an eye-catching flame maple veneer top that lies beneath a purple sunburst finish, whilst the natural body binding ties everything together beautifully.

Five-piece Canadian Maple Neck

Fitted to the body via a bolt-on neck joint, is a strong 5-piece Canadian hard maple neck. The neck is shaped to a wide, slim profile to create a generous playing area that is accommodating and fast playing. The finish allows you to navigate across the strings nice and smoothly, whilst preventing tackiness from impeding your movement. Whether you're looking to execute some solid down-picked chugging, elaborate sweeps, deft legato, two-handed tapping, or strumming, your hands can roam freely. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous 24-fret blackwood fingerboard, which is home to offset dot position inlays that guide your way in understated style.

Powerful Pickups

The Redwood R3 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 expressive character of the alder with depth and dexterity, alongside the crispness of the maple/blackwood partnership. 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.

Heavy-Duty Hardware

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.

Posted on 15/01/2019 by Really pleasantly surprised by this - it looks stunning, plays really nice, and sounds great to me. The downsides are that the saddles are only adjustable by height (but the intonation seems fine, anyway), the fret edges are a bit rough (but nothing that a quick file wouldn't fix), and there doesn't seem to be much variation in tone between any of the pickups (although the humbucker does it's job, anyway, and sounds great through an overdrive/fuzz/valve amp chain). I can't imagine being able to find a better new guitar anywhere for this price.

Posted on 20/10/2018 by Great for playing played it in band rehearsal it was cool
Posted on 18/09/2018 by I got this guitar from the Warrington shop it arrived very quick. I took it to band rehearsal and played it in the studio with the band and never went out of tune used the whammy a lot never went out of tune apart from a few dings on the headstock I love it and I am looking at getting my next guitar in october
Posted on 22/08/2018 by Obviously a £99 guitar isn't going to set the world alight, but from a price-to-value perspective this is a nice bit of kit. The finish on the body is superb, the neck is nice and slick (a satin rather than gloss finish means your hands won't stick if you work up a sweat), and it all seems solidly built. Tonally it has a pretty good range from fat tones to piercing jangles and sustain is more than adequate, so it works equally well for most styles of playing. Out of the box setup was reasonable; the action was perhaps a *little* high past 10th fret but more than usable, and intonation was spot on. The only thing that lets it down, really, is the trem - dip more than a quarter tone and you'll have to dig out the tuner.

Overall, for the price this punches well above its weight, and even at £150 or so it would still be worth the money.
