RedLine Resophonics R-Body Square Neck Pro Model, #160
We love building our resophonic guitars out of figured maple! This build shows that, if somewhat subdued by the Trans-Black finish. But, no, we didn't stop there! We accented the metal parts on this build with a hydro-coated coating that is called "Brushed Metal". We think it blends well with the Trans-Black finish and Mahogany accents, don't you?
Oh, by the way, this guitar sounds fantastic! It was one of the favorite guitars we took to a recent event. I'm kind of surprised we brought it home. Oh well, their loss is your gain! I don't know who will end up with this guitar, but they will be a winner in my book. If a classic, vintage look is what you are searching for, you might want to scroll on, but if you like the looks of this guitar as much as I do, you might want to pull the trigger on this one. Classic shape, unique look, GREAT sound, what else could you ask for?
As with all of our Pro Model builds, our simple, yet efficient baffling system, along with our modern internal bracing system surely add to the overall performance of this guitar. It is loud, it is proud, and you will be proud when it is yours!
