I just went over 500 sales of my capos.Hope I am making a good contribution to the Reso world.
With very mixed feelings, I'm selling my Smith
MeloBro because it's not currently being played and GAS is calling. As
some of you recall, no doubt, this is a reso that was made by Smith
Family Music (the Melobar folks). The body is resin and is unique in
both its body style, materials, and sound. It's punchy, loud, and plays well
with G, D, and E tunings.
Quarterman cone, Steinberger-designed headstock, and a factory-installed Bill Lawrence pick-up. It also comes with a well-fitted Superior gigbag. I am the original owner.
Price reduced to $1200 + shipping OBO for this one. Happy to answer any questions about this guitar that I can.
(If anyone can explain to me how to post the pics upright rather than sideways, I would be most obliged! :) )

It seems that many (most?) R-N members have multiple resos, often more similar in style than different. My question is this... Which resos do you use for which types of gigs/sessions/songs and why? Is there a particular sound or feel you want for certain settings or are you usually simply going by whim?
For those who are home and didn't go to Reso-Summit, here's a swingy old-time style tune from fiddler Alan Kaufman. My first dobro break is near the beginning, right after the fiddle head and the second one is @ 2:42, for those who like to cut to the chase. Thanks for watching.
