    Resonators- Whacha got?

    Lately Iíve been hankering for an affordable, round neck resonator guitar and I'm looking for suggestions. What kind of pie tins are you guys wielding?

    I have an inexpensive Regal resonator. Fun for the bluzey, slide stuff.

    Looks like this, but without the headstock inlay...

    That looks like a "Where's Waldo" picture. Find the Resonator (if you can)

    I've been jonesing for one, too. I can't decide. Between round or square neck, but I know I want a pickup. Anyone got any experience with these amplified? For gigging, I've been thinking about one of these:

    When I need a bluesy, slide track, done well, I want to record a resonator.

    There's this guy I hire who's really, really great and....uh...oh, you wanted to find a guitar to play yourself, eh?

    I got nothin',
    I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken...

    I like the looks of the all metal resos, but I think my playing style would require the wood body model. My ham-fisted, off-time, chord-pouding doesn't need to be accentuated with the all metal body.

    same here - but I've been hankering for some time for a Trussart SteelPhonic...




    and/or a Resogator....




    of course both would have to wait until I get a goldie DGT in the family ;-)

    I've had my eye on this one, haven't bought it yet....can't seem to pull the plug. Not badly priced and has good reviews: Gretsch Root Series G9220 Bobtail Round Neck Acoustic/Electric Resonator 2-Tone Sunburst

    I've got one of these: http://www.fender.com/series/folk/fr-50ce-resonator/

    Very cool - it's got a Tele pickup and a piezo - pretty versatile.

    That Gretsch above looks cool. It'll probably need a set up, but I know some people who do that sort of thing.

    If you get one, let us know how it goes.... maybe I can convince my wife this would be a good use of our tax refund. Also, perhaps PRS should make one!

    I just ordered a Highway 61 from Republic Guitars, they are installing a Lace Ultra Slim humbucker and getting it shipped up to Alberta all for just shy of a grand Looking forward to seeing what it can do!

    I was just talking gear with a co-worker and I told him I have a hankering for a Reso. He slapped me in the face and said "Snap out of it!".
