    A nice for a plethora of problems look ...

    I think it's made in China or Romania, finally a country or guitars are made in cheap.
    It is a biscuit bridge, a piece of rosewood on a blank piece of wood (probably maple) all on a kind of cone scrap.

    The handle is not well known how since it is painted matt black, rosewood fingerboard. The body is plywood ...! and it's hallucinating, but the violin was not of paramount importance as it is the cone that makes the sound of the beast.

    Micro, mini humbucker format, although I suspect some kind of p90 seen his ability to catch the sounds of electric and telephone network.

    Two settings, volume and tone, functional, nothing to say.

    It is a biscuit bridge, a piece of rosewood on a blank piece of wood (probably maple) all on a kind of cone scrap.

    The handle is not well known how since it is painted matt black, rosewood fingerboard. The body is plywood ...! and it's hallucinating, but the violin was not of paramount importance as it is the cone that makes the sound of the beast.

    Micro, mini humbucker format, although I suspect some kind of p90 seen his ability to catch the sounds of electric and telephone network.

    Two settings, volume and tone, functional, nothing to say.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is too far ...!
    I do not even see the interest to fret at this level, even with an ultra shallow draft (which causes wrong notes from the 5th box because of the tension sleeve inréglable) was much action too high (more than a classical guitar, and yet he must go ...)
    So for fans of slide, it does it well, but do not take mark on the frets for accuracy.

    Access to acute is facilitated by the cutaway, but the string action to prevent this place really all right touch.

    We have a sound a little cheap dobro, guitar pot is funny at first, but with high harmonics become bored (we seem to hear the same regardless of the note played harmonics).
    Once connected, you can get that, depending on the amp, something vaguely usable, for my part, especially in slide with a little drive in the lower midrange.
    And finally, this is a guitar that has a problem with pitch, it was nice to seek to resolve the latter, the lack of a good biscuit centimeter backwards to be fair to the 12th gutiare box (and beyond). Even with ropes extreme tension.

    SOUNDS

    I bought it as a folk guitar that could have a big volume, to play a bit of everything. Finally, it has a large volume and is comfortable on anything.
    We have acute harmonics, always the same regardless of the note played that eventually become uncomfortable after the 2nd song ...

    I enjoyed a little play slide on it, with a little drive in the lower midrange, but finally I made a telecaster for the slide, more comfortable in the treble and bass.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used about 3 years, then I sold it.

    I tried folk guitars, classical guitars, but this was my first dobro (since I tried Czech Resonator is not the same price but they are much more balanced, ring true, no harmonics pop and a more rich sound in the spectrum).

    With experience, I have tried every note with a tuner not far and I will not have it purchased the grounds that it was false.

    Quality level price, value for money, nonchalantly is a dobro work, it is more complicated to manufacture a guitar standard, and good for less than 1000 € I find difficult to have balanced dobro, and just makes you want to replay.

    purchased for 1 year. I tried recorder models king of metal and mahogany Fender.
    quality of the swomp and playing comfort, superior
    At around € 300, there is no better. Beyond (1000 € and more), there Ozark.
    Played in addition to an LP and TC.
    Great for amateur electric blues (zztop, Rory G, stones ..)

    - In which country was it made? (USA, Japan, Mexico, France ...)
    Guitar made in (its only real negative point) China.

    - What are the settings (volume, tone, micro switch ...)?
    not complicated: a knob volume, a knob tone

    - How many frets, what kinds of microorganisms and their configuration?
    21 frets, mini humbucker, no special config

    - What type of bridge (Floyd, Wilkinson ...)?
    Maple bridge

    - What kind of stick?
    Mahogany / Continental touch

    and then he must still add the resonator:
    Cone: 9.5 "Aluminum

    UTILIZATION

    - The handle is it nice?
    rear, very nice. C, the painted sticks.
    front, flat handle (normal: it is a guitar for the blues and thus capable of receiving a bottleneck)

    - Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
    despite the resonator is not so heavy as that, its center of gravity is perfectly positioned,

    - Access to acute (last string) Is it easy?
    yes. The cutaway allows to get high on the handle.

    - Do you get easily a good sound?
    acoustics would really like a scratch calibrated for not having a good sound ... and electric is connected and immediately we have what we want

    SOUNDS

    - Are they suitable for your style of music?
    I bought this guitar not to play a particular style but above all to the sound (especially electric), and I have not one but several styles of music and then: yes. the unique sound of this guitar suits me perfectly.

    - What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
    my favorite is still the sound it produces saturated. She has a great acoustic sound and amplified sound clear, but in saturated ... is enjoyable ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    - For how long have you been using it?
    I have since September 2009

    - Did you try many other models before getting this one?
    I have tried her twin sister (another brand but with a lipstick microphone) that I have been tested only acoustic and I had already been packed by the sound of resonator guitars.

    - Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
    without any hesitation. mini humbucker rounded and makes warmer sound of the resonator which gives a generally crystalline.

    - What thing do you like most/least about it?
    most: the sound in saturated ... and then she has the face ...
    the least: the fact that it comes from China (I do not know if it is the blues in Chinese ...)

    - What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    excellent value for money.

    its only real flaw is that it is quite difficult to find
