"Best deal for quality dobro"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Beautiful looking out of the box, action wasn't as high as expected - ready to play out of the box. I've been playing guitar daily(30min-4+hours) for about 4 years, and have been playing less consistently for much longer. This is my first dobro, I just play for enjoyment and not professionally - mostly blues/folk. That's my background for you so you have a better idea where this review comes from.
Sound
Loud sound as expected from a dobro. Love the mahogany for tonal woods though. I tuned the guitar out of the box and was able to warm to the subtle nuances of the guitar. Its more responsive than my Tacoma c1c chief, so the chords need to be played crisp. However, there is more give since the twang sound of not fully connecting on a chord sounds wonderful. Finger picking it still sounds great too. IpFor made in China and 350 bucks it is a great intrpodiuctpry real actor, the build quality compliments the hearty sound.
Ease of Use
There has not been much of a learning curve from the acoustic or electric guitar. Certainly plays differently, but its all fundamentally the same and is a good option to addd strong rhythm lines on recorded tracts - or lay down ground work on new songs being written.
Quality
Heavy, thick mahogany. Feels great in the hands - probably 3/8 an inch cut just judging from the f holes. It looks like the neck was attached, which is obviously pretty common not to have a one piece guitar. I can't imagine someone looking for an introductory dobro would be upset with this purchase new.
Value
Certainly

"Nice Sound, Poorly Made"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The sound of this Dobro is nice. Not loud compared to others I tried but well balanced and not excessively "Honky" in the mid range. A pleasing, classic spider cone sound. Unfortunately the first one I received did not have enough angle over the bridge and this caused major buzzing. Zzounds was very nice and fast resolving this and soon I had another one. But the second one had a very slim and misshapen neck, and a dent in the neck also. I'm going to wait a while until this seemingly bad run of Dobros is hopefully gone then I'll order another and see how that goes. This guitar is worth waiting for, the finish is natural, satin, and the resonator cone seems like a good one. The tuners felt good and it was a comfortable guitar to hold. I just wish the factory would get it together and not try to peddle this lemons.
