Dobro (Resonator Guitar)

The Dobro® resonator guitar, an American invented instrument, has been around since the mid 1920's. The Dobro trademark is owned by Gibson. Guitars of this type, built by independent guitar makers, are referred to as resonator, or, resophonic, guitars.

The resonator guitar, now in a "Golden Era", is popular in contemporary Bluegrass music, adding a soulfull, bluesy touch to the music. Modern country music has rediscovered the resonator guitar after abandoning the instrument for decades.

The instrument is available with either a wooden or metal body. Square necked guitars are played horizontally, similar to the steel guitar. The strings are elevated off the neck. The instrument is played with a bar called a steel. Round necked models are played Spanish style, with or without a slide.
