This Redd Volkaert Signature Model 2012 is in Mint Condition, Serial Number #698
"This guitar has a really punchy, fat, woody bottom-end while still being tight. It also has a throaty, tubey mid-range and sweet highs with just enough sparkle and bite to make it exciting. In my opinion we've found the perfect balance." – Redd Volkaert
Volkaert and Asher worked for many years slowly refining this vintage inspired model, creating a high performance guitar with broad tonal range and ergonomic style.
Included in its superior construction and details are a tight-grain rock maple volute neck for exceptional stability, top of the line hardware, nitrocellulose lacquer with matching headstock, and easy access truss-rod.
The pickups are custom wound for this model by Jason Lollar- 3 prototypes were tested live on stage before the final version went into production. These pickups offer balanced vintage tones with just the right amount of microphonic qualities to bring out the natural resonance of the guitar and compliment a variety of playing styles.
