I was wondering when this was going to come around, and here it is. Unless I missed it and someone posted about it already, there is now a site for Scheerhorn Resonator Guitars, a.k.a. Scheerhorn by National Reso-Phonic, a.k.a. Nati-horn.
Looks to be a work in progress, will have some catching up to do with the extraordinarily cool new Beard Guitars website, but there are some good things happening on the 'horn site.read more »

Over on the Steel Guitar Forum a gentleman has a Franklin D10, a Franklin Pedabro and an L body Scheerhorn with f holes. He wants $8000, $15,000 and $8000 respectively. Do you suppose he'd do a package deel? Hey James, would a pedabro fit on the fence? http://bb.steelguitarforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=274434
Interesting collection of instruments. Does anybody know just how many Pedabro's were made? (apostrophe in the right place?, It looks ok but only an expert would know)
Made it over to Gryphon Stringed Instruments this afternoon for a test run of their latest selection of resonator guitars. They have three that I'd buy right away if I needed one: A Beard Guitars model R, a Scheerhorn/National Rob Ickes model, and a 2000 Tut Taylor Virginian.
I'd be really happy with any of them (especially if I'm paying with YOUR money), but the Beard really spoke to me the best. It's fascinating to be able to sit down and play three great guitars side by side and hear the very subtle differences that differentiate each builder's approach.
