Here's a bit of "Flatt Lonesome" played by Chad Graves on a RedLine Resophonics Econoline Rambler while he was visiting our booth at Folk Alliance 2014 in Kansas City last week. Those are also RedLine Acoustic Guitars that are playing along with Chad. This video was shot on another visitor's iPad, but you'll get the idea.
