Jim Redgate – Guitar Maker

Jim Redgate was born in London in 1963, and his family migrated to Australia in 1966. His father was a craftsman and imparted him with many woodworking skills from an early age.

At the age of 19, he decided to build his first guitar. During that time, he was studying music and theory at college, which gave him the necessary skills after a year to enroll in a Certificate of Music Performance course. He completed this course in 1985 and was accepted at the Elder Conservatorium of Music to pursue a degree in Performance. He graduated with high marks in 1988. Throughout his studies, he performed on guitars he had built himself in numerous solo and ensemble concerts, even winning a study scholarship.

His skills as a guitarist enable him to assess instruments competently from a player’s perspective, which is crucial for crafting good instruments. After finishing his studies, he decided to make guitar building his profession. Initially, he supported himself through instrumental teaching until he became a full-time guitar maker in 1992.

He mastered the construction of instruments following traditional models and began experimenting with new techniques and materials. Since then, his guitars have gained an excellent reputation worldwide. He now produces around 20 guitars per year in his home workshop. Redgate’s creations are the first choice for a growing number of professional guitarists such as Pepe Romero, Ana Vidovic, Odair Assad, Slava Grigoryan

Their sound is characterized by exceptional sustain, warmth, and a wide range of colors, with excellent responsiveness in the mid frequencies. Jim Redgate builds two models of the Double Top: the regular Double Top and the “Wave” Double Top, where the soundboard is slightly arched. Both of these Double Top guitars are among the best Double Tops built worldwide today.

About Ana Vidović

Ana Vidović (born on November 8, 1980) is a classical guitarist originally from Croatia. As a musical prodigy, she has won a series of awards and international competitions all around the world.

Early Life

Her father, Ljubomir, played the bass guitar and toured nationally with his band during his youth. She has two older brothers: Viktor, a classical guitarist who inspired her to play, and Silvije, a concert pianist. She started playing the guitar at the age of 5, attended music school in her hometown, and began performing at the age of 8. At 11, Vidović began performing internationally, displaying such extraordinary talent that she became the youngest student at the Music Academy in Zagreb at the age of 13 (during the Croatian War of Independence). She studied under Professor Istvan Romer and graduated in 1998.

Her reputation in Europe led to an invitation from Professor and guitarist Manuel Barrueco to study at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland, where she graduated in 2003.

Career

Her international career includes frequent solo recitals, concert engagements, festival performances, and tours all around the world. Vidović has performed with numerous orchestras. She often plays works by Johann Sebastian Bach, her favorite composer, as well as Spanish-speaking composers like Federico Moreno Torroba, Agustín Barrios, Manuel Ponce, Francisco Tárrega, and Joaquín Rodrigo (including Concierto de Aranjuez).

Ana Vidović has won over twenty prizes in international competitions she participated in until the age of 18. Her awards include first prizes at the Albert Augustine Memorial International Competition (Bath, England) at the age of 13, the Fernando Sor Competition (Rome, Italy), and the Francisco Tárrega Competition (Benicàssim, Spain). Other notable awards include the Eurovision Young Musicians Competition, the Mauro Giuliani Competition in Italy, the Printemps de la Guitare Competition in Belgium, and the Young Concert Artists International Auditions in New York.

In a review of one of her performances in 2006, Stephen Brookes of the Washington Post wrote: “Her playing… was practically flawless—detailed, precise, polished. But this was no mere virtuoso turn. Vidovic’s playing is nuanced and intensely personal, both deeply felt and deeply thought.” Stephen Griesgraber of Guitar Review remarked: “It’s difficult to know where to start when discussing the enormous talents of Ana Vidovic. Her dynamic range, the beauty of her sound, the precision of her articulation, and her virtuosity are such that listening becomes an absolute musical experience.”

She cites Paco de Lucía as her influence, John Williams as a significant musical inspiration, and many other composers and musicians. She mentions Jacqueline du Pré’s performance of the Elgar Concerto as one of her favorite classical CDs.

Vidović exclusively plays a Jim Redgate guitar and said, “[A few] years
