JR-410 is a resonator guitar from the Johnson Guitars catalog. It is one of only two currently active models, and it serves as the entry model. It comes with a standard resonator body made of mahogany. Vintage aesthetics are strongly visible on this resonator, as it features a traditional cone on the top of the body. Cone is equipped with the bridge section. Bridge in the front is an integral part of the cone, while the trapezoid tailpiece is attached to the edge of the sound board. There are no pickups or preamps installed on this model, as Johnson Guitars decided to go purely acoustic with their resonator range. Mahogany neck sports a rounded back contour and it`s topped with a standard 19-fret fingerboard made of rosewood.

I bought my Johnson Delta Blues JR-410 VS used because it had a really great sound. Unlike many much more expensive resonator guitars which are terribly tiny and bright (sounds like nails scratching down an old fashioned chalk board) mine has that sweet dull and slow whiny quality you love to hear on recordings but never can seem to find when you go try out guitars. I agree you have to play each one and go by the sound you want. I have no complaints on the quality. It's fine actually. This model is slightly heavy, but has wonderful sustain and the resonator acts like a compressor does in recording. What I mean by that is that if you strum a chord or play an individual string, the volume is amazingly the same which makes your licks really stand out of the chords you throw in and bass runs for some contrast. The guitar sounds like you must be playing multiple instruments. I use a brass finger slide that is cut away on one side and spins around you finger so you can both chord and spin in back to the solid side to throw in some smooth sounding drone tones we all love. I give mine 5 stars. I have no idea why the fret marker is doubled on the 15th fret instead of the 12th fret, but since the neck is attached at the body on the 12th fret its not an issue, just a bit odd is all. I also use a high quality contact pickup on the wood near the lower back edge but on the face of the guitar to electrify it. Electrically, it picks up more of the metallic resonator sound through the pickup, but if you close mike it also, you can find the balance you are looking for. I love it. ***** !!!!!
