Here's the link for details:

http://www.resocentre.com/index.php?id=54,73,0,0,1,0

But forget that price, which includes their commission and commercial markup. If I sell it privately we eliminate all that. Make me an offer!

No Kirk, not a Martin; they never made resonators back then. Dobro was the patented trade name for resonator guitars using a particular type of sound amplification system; in the days before the electric guitar they were trying to make a guitar that could be heard over the noise in a juke or club. The guitars of the Dobro company were made in two places: LA on the West Coast and I think Chicago. This is a Chicago model built in 1935 by Regal, which did all the Dobros sold east of the Rockies to save on shipping costs. But it's still a Dobro and bears the "Dobro" logo on the headstock.

This one is set for slide, of course; that's what these things were meant for. It's a VERY cool guitar, like you would expect from a Dobro that's 70 years old: nice sweet highs and deep growly low notes. The guys I left it with are experts, and they have graded it as being in "excellent" condition.

Much plunking,
Larry

Sweet, is that nickel plated or painted metal?
I like the porthole vs F hole too.
Does it come with a case?

Jay,

It's wood, like the 1929 National Triolians. That's why the tone has mellowed so nicely over the years. No breaks or cracks. And yes, it comes with a case.

Jay,

Those are both pretty cool guitars, though the Stromberg is in reality a kinda big thing to hump around. I somehow always get myself tangled up when I'm playing an archtop.

That site also took me to a page of fantastic T-shirts. I am so putting one of those on my Christmas list!!!!!!!! ;\)

Much love,
Larry
