Radio Tone Dobro 6 String Round Neck National Original Case 1930’s Sunburst
Out of stock
Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..
A really cool and great playing 1930's Radio Tone Dobro Resonator Round Neck Guitar with beat up original Softshell Case.
I am dating this guitar from the Other Patent Pending number on the base of the cone #1,896,484 which dates from Feb 7, 1933...There are no numbers on the top of the headstock ..... The Tailpiece is logo'd Radio Tone...See pics.... All the interior parts are super old according to Jeff the Tech .... there you have it .. any info from informed Dobro Experts would be appreciated and noted here.
The guitar was purchased in the shape you are seeing. The neck is very straight and doesn't need a reset. Awesome action to the 14th fret where it meets the body and no frets outs above that..
The guitar has all original parts except a screw here or there. Original cone, biscuit saddle and resonator, tailpiece, tuners and frets...It looks like there was a Logo on the Headstock that has disappeared. Its shaped like a National Logo but see pics...
The Original Case is missing one latch, one latch is in the case that has come off and the top only attaches at the base latch. It is original so it goes with the guitar. It is very repairable and should stay with this cool vintage instrument. See pics..
This guitar sounds fantastic. Very very loud. You won't get lost in the jam with this one. With Slide it screams but don't forget, this is a round neck. You can play this one like a regular 6 string as well. Its a lot of fun to play..
The original frets have plenty of life in them and there is some finger divots from extended play. This was not an under the bed guitar. It was played...a lot!!!
You will love the sound of this Dobro. Very bright with booming bass that Vintage Dobro Guitars are known for. You will love this guitar.
This guitar is being sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used. Rest assured though, I have been handpicking my customers guitars for over 17 years now and they have all loved theirs. This one will not be an exception. Any questions will be quickly answered and I am happy to discuss the guitar over the phone for an in-hand demo if you would like.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
