The sad state of Dobro® in 2016

Remember the Dobro® resophonic guitar?

Go to http://dobro.com and note that the domain name is now for sale.

Go to http://gibson.com and try to find any mention of "dobro". Go ahead, I'll wait...

Go to http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Acoustics/Bluegrass.aspx - note the first bluegrass instrument listed is a lap steel.

Ah, they have three Dobro models - two round neck guitars and one square neck (http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Bluegrass/Dobro-Hound-Dog-Deluxe-Square...).

Nice job, Gibson.

This is my favorite carol. I recorded this a few years ago for a compilation Christmas album. I sing the song and play the guitar and overdubbed the dobro in the background. The extended outro is all dobro instead of reprising the vocal. It's a haunting song and the dobro accentuates the feel, IMHO. I hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas! :)
