PRICE DROP!!! Rayco Resonator Guitar #291 for sale for $3,200. I had it made by Mark Thibeault in 2012. It has the benefit of being broken in (I played it for 160 shows which comes out to about 480 hours assuming 2 hour shows and an hour of practice for each show...) while also being in near mint condition!

Nati-Horn tone

Have any of you played both the maple and Ickes models of the new Nati-Horns?

I know that the maple is brighter than the mahogany, but how does the Ickes compare to the maple in terms of tone, volume, etc.

The Ickes model is priced significantly higher than the other two...I would imagine that the purfling and different tone woods account for some of the price difference...

Beautiful Gresham squareneck reso for sale.  The top is Red Spruce and the back and sides are Australian Blackwood.  Diamond inlays on the fretboard and rope-style border around fretboard, top, and headstock.  I bought this guitar from Mark Gresham around early 2009.  It's in very good condition.  There are a few marks in the corner of the top by the coverplate which I've tried to show in a photograph of the said corner.  It takes a reflection in the finish to make them show up on a photograph.  The sound is loud and bright.

Mark Gresham took this guitar to IBMA in 2008 and has a picture of it (in some capable hands) on his website.  Check it out here:

I took a short video of me playing this guitar to show a friend back in 2009.  The video is still up on youtube.
