Republic Highway 61 Resonator Guitar Dobro Extra Cover Plate
My Husband is the builder of this Guitar and it belonged to my Uncle , who passed away a year ago...he requested that his guitars be sold after his death to help pay expenses....Offered for bid is a Hodgkins Resonator Guitar. Hand made by Butch Hodgkins using solid American Black Walnut. Dark shading was applied over the walnut with an airbrush, then clear laquered too give it that early R.Q. Jones look. This guitar has all American made hardware...Grover Tuners, Quarterman Cone and Dobro # 14 Spider. The fretboard is figured Claro Walnut with inlaid fret markers and mother of pearl dot inlays. My Uncle loved this instrument and played it alot as you can tell by some of the battle scars..It is about 10 years old and shows some play wear, a few small dents (note pic near the screen cover), some finish checking and the normal scratches, also a few belt buckle and button scars.
The sound of this Guitar is killer. A beautiful full mellow tone and volume like a cannon. It comes with a good hardshell case.
Sorry but No International Bidders....Please feel free to email with any questions....Thank You and Good Luck !!!
