I purchased one of these a few years ago because I always wanted an amplified resonator for the stage. At the time I was hoping for that classic "Dobro" sound. When I first got it, I was kind of disappointed because the resonator cone is really not very responsive and the it just didn't sound good through my amp, kind of thin with lots of shrill feedback. I was never inspired to play it much, but kept it around because it looked so cool. Then one night I was fooling around and plugged it into a Fender Acoustisonic Jr. with the piezo dialed in and some hall reverb and the thing came alive! I discovered a very sweet acoustic lead sound unlike anything I was ever able to get before. It sounded so good I couldn't put it down. Because it is designed like an electric, the playability is great for blues and jazz leads, and the tone is true and mellow. I have a collection of expensive instruments including several Les Pauls, Stratocasters, and various other guitars. After finding this guitar's sweet spot, I would never part with it. Every instrument has a specific niche, and this one has a very exotic acoustic tone if played through the right amp. I would never use it for electric work much because I don't much care for the tone of the humbucker, which feeds back like crazy through an overdriven Marshall, Boogie, or Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. But with the Piezo through the Fender Acoustisonic Jr., this is guitar Heaven. I have been playing over 40 years and the tone blows me away. I would definitely buy another one.

Great resolectric especially for the price....Certainly not a National but the Turser is $1800 less.
