2013 Jim Redgate #377 Spruce CSA


A truly beautiful example of Jim’s work, another one that I’m happy to list on my site.  A good solid tone emanates from the instrument, with power and projection and a musical ability that is not always present in Australian builds.  I find Jim’s guitars musical most of the time, where this one supersedes anything I’ve heard previously from him.

She is a typically heavy Australian build, lattice braced, laminated cello-ed back with a built-in armrest.  Very pretty back and sides.

He’s changed his plantilla and dimensions a shade smaller, with a touch less weight overall.  This as compared to 10 years ago.  It works, as the guitar really has quite a bit of drive, while being a great player.  One of his better examples, is my summation.

There are no issues, or any evidence of play wear on this guitar.  Check that, I found a very light nail mark on the top by the treble side of the neck, which is difficult to see.  I polished and buffed her a touch, where she’s gleaming.  Essentially brand new looking at a good discount.

Setup professionally, I found the guitar to play quite easily, driving her as I wish.  Brand new, $15K, we are asking $13K.   Thanks and don’t hesitate.  Rich



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich
