I really like it
Jindrichus, 30.11.2018
I came to Thomman to buy a different guitar, but when I saw this resonator for such a low price, I couldn't resist and now I have two new guitars.
Bad things first. The wost thing I found on this guitar is the nut. It is visibly unfinished and ugly, also it is too low resulting in too low action, especially for slide. Also, I am not satisfied with the strings provided. They are rather light and sort of sharp on touch (actually, they do grind my brass slide). There are some minor flaws in painting on the body that I consider irrelevant.
The most advantage is that it is the most affordable resonator guitar that is actually joy to play. The body is small, so it does not sound as loud as a regular resophonic guitar. I mark this as a good thing necause I usually play alone in a rather small room. And the look... it is just beautiful.
Overall I really do like this guitar. The sound of resonator without the loudness. And it is just too cheap to not buy it.
I only played it unplugged, so I can not tell anything about the pickups, but I consider them as a nice bonus.
EDIT: I just changed the nut and the strings and now the guitar is amazing!

Just so nice!
17.11.2016
This is such an amazing quality guitar for the price, first thing I did when I recieved it was to re-tune to open G, strings are perhaps a little light and action a little low for slide....that said, I have persevered as is but I think if you are new to slide guitar or are a on the heavy handed side, maybe a heavier set of strings are in order.

It's nicely balanced, and has a nice neck, acoustic sound is very authentic, obviously can also be plugged in and with the pick-up options, can be more versatile, insofar as being a more general electric guitar (albeit a very bright sounding one).

If you are looking for a dobro sound on a budget , you could do a lot worse, this has one advantage by the way that should be mentioned, it's slimness, much more comfortable than many acoustic guitars to play. Great to play, beautiful to look at, amazing quality for the price, great service.

Reso lution!
13.11.2015
Great value reso-electric guitar & electronics are good - although I am still experimenting with settings from on-board knobs & amps & PA systems. Instrument was played straight from the delivery box at a rehearsal (acoustic Blues combo). Neck is very comfortable. I had the plate off to access the saddle to raise the action 1mm & inside is quality parts & construction also. It is quite a narrow guitar, similar in thickness to a Tele, so does not have a big acoustic reso-style sound, but the pickups sound will not disappoint. I would .'. recommend the guitar for anyone wishing a reso-electric sound at a great price. Only minor point is that an instruction sheet on pickup settings & variation would be helpful.

After watching a lot of HB reviews on YouTube, I decided to get one myself and despite those videos I was not ready for the great quality. Very well packed btw. The guitar came out of the box almost in tune and with a great set-up. It looks amazing and stands out in many ways. There are some minor flaws (this speaker thing was not attached, and some very minor finishing issues) but they do not diminish the overall experience at all. It sounds bloody amazing and is such fun to play. I ordered two more guitars after getting this one, and so will you. These prices are just too tempting!
Stop reading this and buy it, you will not regret it!
