Pleasant surprise, it's very well built. No frets filed down badly, no trace of glue suspect.
It is acoustic. So, it is placed between the knees and go to the next chapter.
Handle? Well, it's a handle so well that in a full hand. Broad and not particularly late. So, where picking with tabs can be risky on a resonator with a small stick, the space between the strings opens the accuracy of the game
The body is heavy and therefore, we quickly found the ideal position. Box wedged between his knees as stated above. the original setting allows game picking and slide without any problem.
After the twelfth fret, contortion rigor. But what happens before is already very interesting.
The sound? Here we are. This is the missing link between all comers (Harley Benton, Fender, Regal, Recording King, Johnson) and the most prestigious brands (Amistar, Continental, National) Good projection, dynamic range from very small open harmonics crept up rhythmic much struck with batons in the bass. The sensitivity of the game to the tabs from the bridge up to the handle contains many colors. Say that, suddenly, the game becomes clear.
You like blues? But of course you like the blues if you would read a post on a tricone, eh? Well, me too. And this guitar is very well suited to blues. Genre stinking underarms, see ...
I appreciate his bold end at low frequencies and brightness in the treble. The sound is a little digging if we play can get very light and medium if it is attacked viciously.
I use it for a week. I had a single cone midrange / bass and I've tried just about all kinds of marks to the National.
The playability is its prime asset and his palette of sounds opened his second, finishing last, is nice.
Let's do a simple calculation. If you want to play guitar with a resonator, we have the following choices:
1) Buy an entry level to get an idea that sells it progresses and if you become demanding sound reproduction. In this case, avoid the intermediate step, it is better to type in the low end to 250 euros and wheelbarrows, this well enough to know if we will get to play and sound.
2) Buy at once a good guitar. For 800 euros all inclusive with transportation and customs costs, it is in the intermediate range, and I regret not having known sooner that mark, but the guitars I've owned before allow me to establish this comparison.
