RedLine Resophonics R-Body Square Neck Pro Model, #158
Maple has always been a great choice when building a resophonic guitar.
This build shows that to be true. There is plenty of power in this guitar! It offers all the volume you are likely to ever need, without having to lug around a bigger guitar. That in itself is a great combination. Plenty of volume and exquisite tone in an easy to hold, easy to carry around instrument. The classy vintage look is an added bonus!
Our simple, yet efficient baffling system, along with our modern internal bracing definitely add to the overall performance of this guitar. It is extremely responsive, which is handy for articulate playing styles. This guitar can handle anything you throw at it, musically speaking.
As you can see, this is a very good looking guitar, brand new, with a somewhat vintage vibe to it. It sounds great, and our meticulous set-up work makes it as fun to play as it is to look at!
