The Redwood SA1CE Archtop Electro Acoustic Guitar with natural finish evokes vintage-style, which is coupled with modern appointments to give it the perfect balance of tones and versatility. Whether you're an intermediate player looking to progress in style, or are a seasoned player who is seeking a trustworthy partner to perform with, this is the model for you.

Sublime Archtop Body

The heart of the SA1CE lies in the exquisite archtop body design, which generates tremendous energy within its internal chamber. The rich timbre generated by the body is projected gracefully via the intricately designed dual F-holes through the body top. Sapele has been selected as the sole body tonewood for the top, back and sides. Noted for its exceptional durability, sapele produces a forthright mid to low-end energy, with the highs making a subtle appearance to round out the output. The natural grain of the sapele shines through a protective high gloss finish, which allows the wood to resonate freely whilst preventing premature aging. The natural finish is complemented by a white binding that outlines the top to set it apart from the sides.

Supportive Nato Neck

Connected to the body is a robust nato neck, which provides a sturdy playing platform to perform on. The profile is shaped to be substantial without feeling cumbersome to guarantee comfort along its entire length. Married to the neck is a luxurious blackwood fingerboard, which is home to 20 enticing frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to aid in your navigation. Thanks to the single-cutaway in the body, upper fret access is much easier to attain in the greatest of comfort.

Mini-Humbucking Pickup

The SA1CE is equipped with a mini-humbucking pickup in the neck position, which captures the breadth and depth of acoustic tones made available by the archtop design and tonewood combination. Control over the pickup comes in the form of a master volume control, along with a master tone control that allows you to shape the emphasis of your output from low to high.


The headstock is home to vintage tuning machines, which work tirelessly to uphold tuning integrity with precision, whilst retaining an easily adjustable feel for smooth tuning amendments. The steel bridge/tailpiece partnership creates a seamless union between the strings and body.

If you’re looking for an electro acoustic that is a dream to perform on, produces an expressive timbre that is infused with warmth and character, and allows you to play both acoustically or via plugged-in to an amp, then the Redwood SA1CE Archtop is the perfect choice.

Posted on 05/01/2019 by My wife got this as my Christmas present.
Amazing sound also not amplified.
Remembers the classics for amazing value
Posted on 20/10/2018 by Saw this in store and it was really attractive so thought I would take a punt at the price. I had it delivered and the set up was fine out of the box, certainly better than a lot of bigger brand guitars I've purchased. I swapped the strings for a set of D'addario Chromes flatwounds and the tone is absolutely amazing - bell like clarity , warm and mellow. It is easily loud enough to play acoustically for practice. Definitely great value . No issue with the pickup balance like one of the other reviewers. It's a joy to play -I'm a very happy customer :)
Posted on 15/05/2018 by First impression of this guitar, it looks great, feels very good, plays well, but ONLY when correctly set up ( lowering the action, I also replaced the strings for lighter gauge) and sounds decent. Regarding the sound it is much better suited to blues/jazz type of thing, rather than pounding out big open chords Oasis style, in my opinion. Overall I'm very pleased with it, and a worthy purchase, considering the price. Enjoy.
Posted on 21/04/2018 by The sound quality was excellent and has only got better over time. It is a real pleasure to play, and the quality seems to be far better than one would expect. I am very impressed with Dawsons, their service and the value for money they offer
Posted on 16/02/2018 by Right out of the box, this guitar played beautifully. Unplugged, it sounded like a full acoustic - sweet tone, good sustain and surprisingly loud. Through an amp, the acoustic mellow sound came through. My son dropped round and was blown away when he played it. I asked him how much he thought it cost. He guessed £500. When I told him the price, he said he was going to buy one tomorrow. One tiny point: as with all trapeze bridges, strings will pop out if you use low tension strings like 07. The ones supplied are 12. However, there is a replacement bridge available from Guitarfetish that slots right in. I've ordered one and will try it out with 07s.
Posted on 01/10/2017 by Looks Ok and seems solidly made..........the supplied set up is fine if you are going to strum open chords but needed a fair amount of work to be used as jazz guitar involving truss rod adjustment and reducing the height of the feet on the wooden bridge. On the plus side the frets are well fitted and needed no levelling. The pickup has a very low output and is not easy to get a balanced response across all strings. OK for the money.
Posted on 09/09/2017 by This guitar is inexpensive but doesn't look it. You may have to spend time/ money on set up but not too much. I love the f hole styling.
