Dobro resonators have long been regarded as some of the finest resonator instruments produced, and along with National have become synonymous with quality resonator instruments for nearly 100 years. This 1933 Dobro Model 37 round neck is a great example of an early California built 12 fret Dobro, with the model being one of the companies midrange, professional wood body guitars at the time. This example features the saw-cut slot headstock design found on early versions of this instrument, before production was moved to the Regal factory. This single spider cone resonator features a bound mahongay ply body with a tobacco sunburst finish, and a solid mahogany round neck design. The single cone design has a warm and responsive output with plenty of volume, and is perfect for slide blues and bluegrass playing.
This guitar is in good condition, with plenty of play wear accrued over the years. It has also had a previous headstock repair, which is fairly visible but perfectly stable. As with all our instruments, this guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
