RedLine Resophonics R-Body Square Neck Pro Model, #145
The back and sides are made from solid book-matched East Indian Rosewood. The neck is made of Honduras Mahogany and sports a beautiful Rosewood Fretboard with Flush Frets. The headstock overlay is also made of Rosewood, to which we have applied our snappy RedLine logo!
This guitar is somewhat unique in that we have only built a few guitars with this wood species combination (Rosewood/Spruce). This guitar also includes an internal baffling system inside this guitar, which compliments our internal structure of the guitar (mentioned below). This guitar sounds great and is very comfortable and easy to play. We opted for an "eased edge" on the back of the body instead of binding it, which eliminates the sharp edge found on most guitars. You will notice the difference while playing this guitar while sitting down. As with all of our R-Body style guitars, you will immediately notice plenty of volume, fantastic tone, and all the sustain you will ever need. Bluegrass, Newgrass, Very Traditional Bluegrass, this guitar will deliver in all of these genres, and more!
All in all, this is a very handsome and well built guitar. It sounds wonderful, and it is easy and comfortable to hold and to play. It just might be all you are looking for in this type of instrument!
