Pictured is the Floyd Rose Redmond Series Model 3 electric, one of six different new guitars from Floyd Rose. The Model 3 comes with a Floyd Rose Vintage series humbucker in the bridge position and two Vintage series single coil pickups. The five-position switch lets you select the humbucker only or add the middle single coil for that classic "out-of-phase" sound.
The Redmond Series guitars are made of swamp ash or poplar come finished in black, white, three-color sunburst transparent red, blue and amber. There are also twelve custom colors available. The neck is a bolt-on maple with a twelve-inch radius, 22 jumbo frets, a 1.65-inch nut width and your choice of rosewood or maple fingerboard. The Redmond Model K comes with a body made of Korina or African Limba.
I was very impressed with a standard feature on all the Redmond Series: the Speedloader bridge. Using special-made strings (more later) you can change a string in about 15 seconds and magically, it comes up nearly in tune! It is said you can change a whole set in the time it takes to open the string's packaging. Furthermore, you'll never need a string winder or wire cutters again. Speedloader bridges come in both fixed and tremolo models and in black, satin chrome or gold colors. The tremolo models feature TremStopper that locks out the tremolo action with a twist of screw.
Floyd Rose Speedloader strings come in standard gauges .008 to .011, light top/heavy bottom sets .009 to .010 and .012 & .013 drop tuning sets. For much more about the new Redmond Series and all things Floyd Rose, contact them at www.floydrose.com or telephone 425-861-7089.
