The Redwood R4 Electric Guitar in Matt Black is an understated model with a cool finish that is crafted to a very high standard. Boasting a sleek and fast playing feel, the R4 is equipped with a highly versatile pickup selection, which can be controlled with ease to produce a wide range of exquisite tones. Whether you're embarking on your musical journey, or have many years' experience in playing guitar, anyone who plays one of these beauties will be blown away.
Sleek Basswood Body
The body has been crafted using basswood, a lightweight tonewood that produces a balanced frequency response with hearty sustain. Favouring a carved top body profile, Redwood has made the depth very shallow to increase comfortability. The bouts taper off to super-slim edges to ensure a supportive resting position for the picking arm. The deep double-cutaways enable greater access to the upper frets to guarantee total freedom across the neck.
Five-piece Canadian Maple and Nato Neck
Fitted to the body of the R4 via a bolt-on neck joint, is a sturdy 5-piece Canadian hard maple and nato neck. In keeping with the fast playing feel across the guitar, the neck is shaped to a wide, slim profile to encourage you to unleash your inner shredder. 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 dot position inlays to aid in your navigation.
The Redwood R4 is features a pickup arrangement that enables you to produce a wide range of tones. In the neck and bridge positions are humbucking, each one delivering smooth cleans, with the ability to generate a fantastic snarl when overdriven. The centre pickup is a single-coil that sings with a brightness and clarity that captures the heart of the basswood beautifully. Combine all three for a well-rounded output with an enduring sustain. Control comes in the form of a master volume pot, a master tone pot, and a five-way pickup selector switch.
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.
