Looking like it's been lying undiscovered in a damp barn since the 1930s this brass bodied single cone resonator is distinguished by it's relic 'rat rod' finish. The  wide mahogany neck (48mm at the nut) has a bound rosewood fretboard with 12 frets to the body, a  vintage style slotted headstock fitted with 1930s  style tuning machines in matching 'antique' brass finish.

As with all our resonator models, the  guitar is carefully set up in our workshop and fitted with 16-56 gauge phosphor bronze resonator strings. The action is set at 3mm (+/- 0.25mm) at the 12th  fret, comfortable for both slide and finger picking playing.


Solid brass Duolian size body - mahogany neck with bound rosewood fretboard, vintage style slotted  headstock with replica 1930s style tuning machines, precision hand spun  resonator cone - solid koa wood biscuit bridge with handmade boxwood  string saddle, 16-56 phosphor bronze resonator strings -  Oxford  Nylon covered, plush lined rigid shell case included.
