If you're looking for a great resonator guitar, you can't go wrong with the Epiphone Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck, an affordable model in a beautiful Vintage Brown finish. 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.
Since its glorious revival in the early 1920s, the Dobro Resonator 'Hound Dog' has become a prized instrument for bluegrass and American Country fans.
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.
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.
