The Dobro® resonator guitar has been an American classic since its arrival in the early 1920's. The wood resonator or resophonic style guitar became a national phenomenon thanks to Dobro pioneer Bashful Brother Oswald, who became the instrument’s virtual ambassador, performing it weekly on the Grand Ole Opry for over 60 years. The resonator guitar is still 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.
In addition to the bridge’s ebony saddle which sits atop a maple base, the full warm tone of the Hound Dog Round Neck is enhanced and projected by a new proprietary nickel plated Dobro® cone with a nickel fan cover plate, round sound holes with screens, and classic f holes.
