Jim Redgate Classical Guitar #408 2016 Cedar CSA RW


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.  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 fidelity equipment is highly recommended.

MP3 Audio – 161228-redgate-408-cedar – if you want to have fun with a guitar while playing at a concert level, this is it.  Powerful with ease of play.  I enjoyed this recording session quite a bit.
