Enhance Projection With Fishman Resonator Pickup

The Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe is equipped with a Fishman Resonator Pickup that can be used to enhance the resonator's projection, making it ideal for performing musicians. The Hound Dog Deluxe provides smooth and authentic amplification yet still retains the natural tone of the American classic. The Fishman pickup offers strong resistance to feedback and by increasing the projection, the Hound Dog Deluxe can achieve a new sound.

Classic Resonator With Modern Twist

The flame maple provides the Hound Dog Deluxe with stunning aesthetics; with its unique, natural wood grain. Maple as a body tonewood delivers excellent levels of sustain, and it holds a strong, upper midrange with good bite. The maple body has 3.5" of depth, and features a Dobro single cone resonator for increased sonic possibilities. The resonator is topped with a nickel plated fan cover, which contrasts well with the Vintage Brown finish, providing a classically vintage guitar with a modern twist - both visually and sonically.

Mahogany Neck Paired With Rosewood Fingerboard

The mahogany neck joins the body at the 12th fret, and it features a square shape that is ideal slides or bars playing styles. The mahogany neck infuses the Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Resonator with beautiful warmth, resonance, and a clear top end. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that adds warmth and clarity to the overall tone, while its smooth surface provide a comfortably energetic playing experience.

Reliable Hardware

Grover Tuners provide the guitar with precise intonation that you can rely on throughout the night, and the classic Spider bridge features an ebony saddle upon a maple base; which projects a loud and sharp tone.

The Dobro Story

Synonymous with the resonator, today the Dobro brand's heritage and traditions live on through the Gibson and Epiphone brands, offering players affordable ways to experience the joy of owning a classic Dobro.

The resonator guitar is an iconic instrument of choice for country, folk and bluegrass styles, with its distinctively resonant tone.
