The Designer Maker Revolution

Jim Redgate: Designer and Maker of Guitars. “Only Courage”

May 17, 2020

Jim Redgate is a luthier. He makes classical guitars.

Some of Jim's guitars are 100% traditional, others look traditional but are 100% state-of-the-art.

If you are a Designer: guitars are a complex design problem and there is no room for compromise.

If you are a Maker: Jim has some serious skills.

We talk about design and making in depth.

Jim has a great way of looking at mistakes - listen up people!

"Making a guitar is like walking towards a cliff with a blindfold on; how far will you let yourself go before you drop over the edge."

The Revolution is always interested in discussing how to deal with setbacks!

Thanks Neil Thomason for audio assistance.

Patreon is coming. Also soon (I hope) high quality, silk screened T-shirts - screened by hand of course! Any colour you like, so long as it's Black. Pre-orders for the T-Shirts are welcome.

All proceeds will go towards better equipment and running the Revolution, so that the audio quality can be as good as it can be. The Revolution strives for excellence in all things!
