SOLD TO KODIAKRESO!
For Sale: Wechter Scheerhorn RS-6510 "f-hole" mahogany dobro. It is in great condition, hardly out of the house (I bought a bona-fide Scheerhorn not long after this purchase).
It was set-up with a new cone and a Schertler pick-up by Tim Scheerhorn. The new cone is NOT one the new Scheerhorn cones that Tim makes, it was an upgrade over the "original" cone (according to Tim Scheerhorn).
The case is in good condition, but is kind of cheap (it's the original case that Wechter sold with this model). No dings.
$600 + shipping + insurance.
PM me. . . . operators are standing by
I've been shopping around for different guitars and I think I've settled on the E-model made by Beard. Currently, they only have the mahogany model in stock although I know of a few shops around that are carrying the maple model.
From what I understand, the mahogany is going to carry a warmer tone while the maple will have a sharper tone that resembles many of the Sheerhorn models. I spoke with Chet, a representative of Beard this morning. He actually prefers the mahogany model but I wanted to get other opinions as well.
I haven't had the chance to play the mahogany model and was hoping I could get some insight from the fine people of reso-nation.
Thank y'all and happy playing!
I’m go to start looking for a solid mahogany open sound well resophonic guitar. The solid Goldtone Beard has caught my eye. Anyone have any experiences with any of those? I’m obviously chasing JD’s tone, but I don’t have a ton of money to spend. I heard a Phil Ledbetter reso on youtube and really liked it, but after reading the reviews here, I’m gun shy. Since I'm out in the sticks it will be hard to see one in person.
Real nice model 45 Dobro with spruce top, most likely made by Regal in Chicago, based on rounded slotheads and non-beveled holes. Mahogany back and sides and square neck/raised nut. Two screens/3 hole top. Decal on back of headstock reads reads "Artistic" which is a label that extensive search has shed no light on - quite rare. Many top authorities have not seen this before and find it "unusual"; "interesting"... feel free to call or write if you have any info on this or want to know who has weighed in on it (serious players will know their names).
Made only during mid-thirties, between 1932-1937.
Condition is excellent-plus, with no cracks, gouges or dings; some scratches on the back and a few on neck. Frets and fretboard are in perfect condition. Heel is tight to body. Some faint crazing to top and back finish. Rings bright and loud as a bell. Includes hardshell case. Price is $2,300 plus $50 shipping (insured)
