Cool and comfy body
The body is crafted from basswood, a lightweight and tonally balanced wood that offers superb rigidity and resonance. Known for its bouncing midrange energy with subtle low end, and crisp clear highs, basswood is a fantastic all-rounder that makes it highly versatile for those looking for a guitar that adapts readily to any musical style.
The team at Redwood have adopted a classic double-cutaway body shape, which features ergonomically designed contours that allows the guitar to rest snugly against your body during performances. Whether your like to wear your guitar high, at the waist, or lower, the RS2 sits just right. The body is finished with an elegant paintjob, which is protected by a 3-ply pickguard to prevent unwanted scratches from damaging the top.
Connected to the body via a solid bolt-on joint is a durable maple neck. Shaped to the comfortable "C" shape profile, the neck nestles perfectly in the hand, creating a substantial feel without becoming cumbersome. The fast-playing feel of the neck encourages your fingers to roam freely, allowing you to hone your technique and develop playing confidence. Married to the neck is a composite fingerboard, which provides a resilient playing surface to master your skills on. There are 22 frets to explore, with dot position inlays to guide your way.
Versatile pickup arrangement
The Redwood RS2 is fitted with a trio of Wilkinson single-coil pickups in the neck, middle, and bridge (offset) positions respectively. A 5-way pickup switch allows you to select pickups individually, or create subtle blends of two or three at a time - depending on the tone you desire. Using the master volume and two tone pots, you can sculpt your output exactly as you wish. Whether you're looking to execute intricate jazz chops, master the art of country chicken pickin', or shred like a pro, the RS2 has tones to suit every musical genre and style.
The body is home to a single-direction tremolo in the bridge, which offers accurate vibrato control to truly bring your individual playing style to life. Providing a solid anchor point from each string, the connection from the bridge to the tuning machines is finely executed to optimise intonation and sustain. The machine heads are resolute in upholding tuning integrity, so that once you're tuned up, you can play with confidence.
The Redwood RS2 beginner’s electric guitar is ideal for those picking up their first model, seeking a gift for a loved one, or those who want an affordable backup for practising or travelling with.

However, I don't see the point in buying this guitar when the cheapest Fender Squire (a more reputable brand) costs just a little bit more (£115).
All in all, this is my personal guitar that I use until I upgrade and so far - so good!
