Redback''s F Series to include Tonerider pickups

Shanghai, China (April 22, 2008) -- Redback Guitars'' latest F Series electric guitars will be powered by Tonerider pickups. This latest product line will feature a range of Tonerider pickups including the Generator and Rocksong humbucker models, Classic Blues single coils and Tonerider’s flagship product, the Rebel 90 – a P-90-inspired pickup that fits in a standard humbucker route.

Lonhorn F SeriesThe F Series is Redback''s first bolt-on neck guitar series. The guitars feature a chambered Queensland maple body with a 25.5 inch scale on a compound radius fingerboard, which enables ultra low action, yet doesn''t fret out when you do the big bends. It also has Grover locking tuners designed for tuning stability; Wilkinson vintage-style tremolos; bent steel saddles; a two post pivot system; and a stagger drilled block, so strings pass over the saddles at an optimum angle.

Rodney Chan, co-founder of Redback, said, “The sound is supercharged single coil - fat mids, gritty and with plenty of bite. There’s no harshness here at all, thanks partly to the Alnico II magnets.”

This is the first collaboration between Tonerider and Redback.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
