Epiphone Dobro Hound Dog Resonator

The Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck resonator guitar is the perfect guitar for any roots or Americana music. The Dobro resonator guitar has been an American classic since its arrival in the early 1920s. The wood resonator or resophonic style guitar became a national phenomenon thanks to Dobro pioneer Bashful Brother Oswald, who became the instruments virtual ambassador, performing it weekly on the Grand Ole Opry for over 60 years. The resonator guitar is not just an iconic instrument for bluegrass and traditional American music. In the last decade, popular artists in country, blues, and bluegrass have rediscovered the beautiful and challenging Dobro.

Historic Tone With A Twist

In addition to the bridges ebony saddle which sits atop a maple base, the full warm tone of the Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck is enhanced and projected by a proprietary nickel plated Dobro cone with a nickel fan cover plate, round sound holes with screens, and classic f-holes. The Hound Dog really barks thanks to a cutting edge Fishman resonator pickup. Fishman pickups are world-famous for providing players smooth and flexible amplification that retains an instrument's true acoustic tone.

Features:

- Fully bound, highly figured maple wood body
- Classic single cone resonator/spider bridge construction
- Ebony saddle atop a maple base
- Fishman resonator pickup
- Comfortable mahogany neck

Epiphone has taken great care to make sure the Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck has the same classic sound of the originals. Like all their instruments, the Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck is covered by Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and is backed by Gibson's 24/7/365 customer service.

"Fantastic Sound.."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Picked up Guitar, tuned to Open "G" and didn't put down for hours.. Was easy to play, even with my limited play of resonator and slide I sounded pretty good. Picked up slides and runs very easy. Finish was perfect, I only wish it came with a case. Seems the case is harder to find than the guitar. Can't go wrong with this Resonator. A pleasure to play..
