    Unlike some guitars rsonnateur, its use is not limited to slide away from l. The agreements are simple and the solos. The strings are close to the handle, all is very well rgl.

    SOUNDS

    Trs good sound for blues, the blues specially the south.
    the Młoda are also made with a natural rverbration quite enjoyable.
    However, do not expect the sharpness in the sound, it is not an Ovation.
    But sure, the guitar is heard.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 18 months.
    It is idalie for the blues, and usable for Młoda (thanks its natural rverbration)
    In this price range, it has no concurrency.
    Competition, without naming it, is to use less enjoyable, to finish well back and the draft.
    At the exprience, I would do the same choice. I choose can be the MODEL, latest issue, with notches and a bridge pickup, but more expensive.

    Guitar made in China, I did not know Fender had gone that far, but hey ...
    No microphones on my model, one can easily get a microphone while digging the box, I have heard that the mic telecaster a resounding success.
    I took the model square neck (round square) which is played exclusively on the lap slide

    UTILIZATION

    Guitar quite heavy because of the scrap metal in which
    The advantage of the model Squere neck is that it is easier to play, ironically, just put the slide on the strings and the sound is there, no noise like a bottleneck with poorly controlled.

    Assayer you over the carpet, open up a fresh bud well on the veranda, and send, you are in "Paris Texas". Missing more than the cackling of hens

    SOUNDS

    It sounds very frankly, and the square neck gives her a wider and deeper than the classic Dobro. Aimed primarily at bluegrass and delta blues into finger picking, the pick is also possible to send ground it down without asking any question of conscience. We must refine a little on the choice of strings it seems, the rope appears acute enough compared to others. I'll try shortly ties stronger.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have a few days ago, and it's a very nice instrument to play, a string from the problem acute. I play with a thumb tab and I am screwed up fingers for two days ...
    I tried other entry-level, but I have not had the same sensations.
    I find the exceptional value for money, and a great tool for exploring the area and even if we do not have 2000 euros to a national or a Weissenborn.
    There's the gibson houndog seems not bad, but it is more expensive and harder to find.

    If you are looking for atmosphere Mississippi cheap, go for it! you will discover a whole world, and I loved it.

    UTILIZATION

    SOUNDS

    Once the animal is interesting because it sounds to slide as folk and is versatile enough that it is not his calling ... As against the reso tends to vibrate with sounds parasit not too pleasant, but may be should I be re settle early because I did not have these problems.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I scratched the last 4 years, and although she equated in any way my Martin HD35, or my old GIBSON LG0 I am very attached to this guitar, for some reason ...
    I tried other styles, including a GIBSON DOBRO that sounded worse. I also had an all-metal dobro "TANGLEWOOD" I sold because it did not sound as though this small unpretentious Fender
    A try before you buy, it's not a remake but I NATIONAL STEEL purchase and will not be able to part with it.

    F50 base, black, without a microphone and run classic.

    UTILIZATION

    I took me home Addario 16/60, F50 on a normal run (not squareneck). It's really to play slide, but it sounds strong and not be afraid to attack cordes.J 've placed Piezo Sensor (2) on the cone, a jack, an equalizer, and it works. Well, a microphone or a specific sensor would be much better (see Mike Lewis) but hey, the piezo cost anything.

    SOUNDS

    It sounds good dobro.Avec a Bottle Neck a little heavy brass, there are more bodies. I Esay the BN ceramic, and glass is very chaud.Le better suited to electric. You must try the BN of different materials that greatly influence the sound. In addition there are …

    Made in china, it is the FR-50 any color sunburst acoustic. Wicker covers laminated spruce top and mahogany back and laminated rsonateur type spider.

    My MODEL is a roundneck (like that of a traditional folk).

    Rglant in the NEC and changing strings, so we get a direct its very satisfactory!

    SOUNDS

    Fender cr l trs a versatile instrument: the guitar may equally well be used as a folk (in rhythm or picking) that as a dobro ...
    Thus the purists will probably dtest, but for my part I rather like the concept: it's pretty indict.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I possde past ten days, compared with a Dobro Hounddog and "biscuit" of Epiphone ... I have chosen to empty more versatility.
    The pros: not too bad RULES original, versatile, well finished trs for a guitar of this price.
    The -: Got my neck too thin, mechanical little prcises

    Having bought 280 new on sale I found the report qualitprix trs almost good (almost to mcaniques is to really "cheap").

    With the exprience and the current state, so probably I would do the same choice: to try to slide while keeping a fairly versatile instrument, made trs fine.

    The Fender Resonator FR 50 is an acoustic resonator guitar that has no pick ups or setting controls, and relies on metal resonators to give it its unique sound. The neck is made out of rosewood, and it has a spruce top with mahogany sides.

    UTILIZATION

    The neck of the Fender Resonator FR 50 has a fluid feel, making the guitar really easy to play. I was new to resonator style guitars when I got this guitar and I found that the transition was quick easy with thanks to the beautiful neck and overall feel of this guitar. The guitar is heavier than an average guitar, but that is to be expected due to the metal resonators. Its pretty easy to get a sound as the inherent tone is pretty good…

The guitar is heavier than an average guitar, but that is to be expected due to the metal resonators. Its pretty easy to get a sound as the inherent tone is pretty good, of course you must know how to play it though!

    SOUNDS

    The overall sound heard from the Fender Resonator FR 50 is pretty impressive, especially considering the price of this guitar. It is heard mostly in country, folk, and bluegrass music but is suitable for any type that you would want to use it with. I have used it for recording and practicing all types of music ranging from pop and rock to traditional country and bluegrass. I'm always happy with the sounds I get from this guitar and the sound has definitely exceeded my expectations.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using the Fender Resonator FR 50 for about a year and I have found it to be a more than adequate introduction to the world of resonator guitars. I've always loved the sound of a resonator guitar and I when I saw that Fender was selling one for such a cheap price I had to try it out, and I've been pleasantly surprised ever since. This is a perfect guitar for those looking to try out or get into playing resonator guitars and is even suitable for recording and live shows. I love having my Fender Resonator FR 50 guitar around and would highly recommend it for all looking for a cheap resonator.
