Now here is a rare bird: a review of a lap style resoophonic guitar in Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
I am a long time subscriber and I can't remember the last time they reviewed a dobro. There have been a lot of changes with the mag in recent years and not everyone approves. I have known several folks associated with the publication as they have been headquarted for years not far from me, some no longer with the organization, but I still enjoy the magazine.
Below is a video they shot of this beautiful Rayco being played, and the article is available for reading on the website. This is in the September 2016 issue, I have yet to receive my copy in the mail but it should arrive any time.read more »

PRICE DROP!!! Rayco Resonator Guitar #291 for sale for $3,200. I had it made by Mark Thibeault in 2012.

Check this out! The guys at Rayco Resophonics are at it again! This time it is a semi hollow chambered lap steel with Lollar Gold Foil pickup, blendable with a Fishman Matrix Under Saddle Transducer. Available in 22.5 inch scale length as well as 25. I'm shooting for one with 7 strings..
