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 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 bridge's ebony saddle which sits atop a maple base, the full warm tone of the Hound Dog Deluxe 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. 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. Epiphone has taken great care to make sure the Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck has the same classic sound of the originals.
A Legend Reborn
The Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck is stunning in both appearance and tone and features a fully bound, highly figured Flame maple wood body with a 3.5 inch depth and a classic single cone resonator/spider bridge construction. The round mahogany neck joins the body at the 12th fret and has a classic 25 inch scale with a fingerboard with 19 frets, a standard 12 inch radius and a 1.75 inch nut. The single action adjustable truss rod comes with a classic 'bell' cover. Most vintage Dobros now suffer from years of wear and tear along with an out-of-reach price tag that puts older Dobros out of reach to most musicians. The Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck brings back the cherished Dobro sound with modern building techniques that can last for a lifetime of playing. The Hound Dog comes in a beautiful and distinctive Vintage Brown (VB) colour finish.
The Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck includes Epiphone's all-metal hardware including premium Grover machine heads and a nickel plated tailpiece.
