First Redwood Audio Bass Underway!

Bass 001 Body Underway
The first bass guitar project for Redwood Audio is underway!  This is also a bit of a milestone for us as it represents the first piece specifically requested from our workshop.

The wood is ready for working, hardware is in stock and the first stages of construction have begun.  In an obvious nod to the classic Fender Precision Bass®, it will feature a double cutaway body contoured for comfort and a single split-coil humbucking pickup (a “Fender Original” ’62 in this case) with standard volume / tone control.

However, wood selection for the project has deviated from the common formula of alder or ash.  Instead using a lighter piece of mahogany topped with book-matched spalted maple.  The neck will be more standard – maple with an ebony fingerboard.  In respect of Fender’s trademarks and design rights we will of course be utilizing our own distinct headstock design.

Check back soon for more details on the project as they unfold.  If you have comments or ideas for a project you would like to share with us, please feel free contact us.
