A different resonator guitar

John Reuter is the head instructor at Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix, and he builds these interesting guitars in his spare time. This one is a cutaway body walnut instrument with chrome trim. The interesting part is the resonator, which is the spider cone variety often used in wood bodied Dobro instruments. Here, though, it is coupled with a low profile fingerstyle neck.
It has the sustain and clarity often of interest to a fingerstyle player who's looking for a different "flavor."
