Great instrument for the price
Francesco319, 27.11.2014
A nice, good looking and discretely good sounding guitar, expecially at this price. It's not the most resonating and rich sounding resonator guitar you'll buy, but at this price the sound it has is way more that I was expecting. A little bit hard to play for guitarists with small hands, if you want to to fingerpicking. Works well with slide. the finish is quite good, the neck was smooth enough, but not 100% even in the wook-working.
At this price I would definetely say that it's a good investement for your home recording studio, if you want a cheap guitar that records well country or bluesy lines.

First Resonator - not disappointed!
24.04.2015
This is the first resonator guitar which I've owned which I bought after wanting something a little different to my other guitars and I have certainly not been disappointed.

The guitar arrived in good time and was well packed.

It's quite a heavy guitar, as you would expect, and is sturdy and well made. The neck has a nice feel to it and is easy to play. There is a really nice tone to the guitar, which is quite loud and it's interesting to hear how different pieces can sound when you've been used to playing them on a 'regular' acoustic.

The tuning pegs seem good quality and so far it has held its tuning well over the week or so that I've had it.

The guitar definitely suits certain music styles better than others and is most at home with blues and country style music. Slide guitar sounds very good, and while I'm a bit of a novice with a slide it has certainly spurred me on to learn some slide blues tunes.

Overall I would recommend this guitar to anyone who is interested in getting a resonator guitar and in adding a different sound to their guitar arsenal. It's a great looker too and has already gained a lot of compliments from non-guitar playing friends.

I think it will take some time to get the best out of this guitar and learn what suits it best but it's a journey I'm looking forward to.

Happy End im zweiten Anlauf
Horst aus G., 18.08.2012
Ich besitze bereits 2 Resonatorgitarren (Metallkorpus), ausschließlich für Botteneckspiel in Open Tunings. Nun suchte ich noch eine weitere, mit normaler Saitenlage, nur für Fingerstyle-Spiel in Normalstimmung. Die "Honey Dipper" fiel mir sofort ins Auge, da ich dieses historsch nachempfundene Design mit der markanten Kopfplatte ausgesprochen schön fand, und ihre unüblich Form eine schöne Ergänzung zu meinen anderen beiden ist.

Wenige Tage nach dam Kauf musste ich sie leider zurückbringen - es stellte sich heraus, dass die Saiten deutlich außermittig zum dem Griffbrett lagen. Also bei der hohen E-Saite viel Abstand zum Rand, bei der tiefen dagegen wenig Abstand zum Rand, so das ich beim Spielen oft mit der Saite über den Rand rutschte. Der Austausch erfolgte gewohnt problemlos, die "neue" war dann soweit in Ordnung, das Antikfinish allerdings nicht ganz so schön wie bei der ersten, aber passt.

Ansonsten mag ich das Instrument sehr. Das Antikfinish sieht gut aus und ist unempfindlich, muss nicht dauern poliert werden wie die Glanzvernickelten, die Gitarre spielt sich angenehm, auch der Hals mit der zunächst etwas ungewohnten leichten V-Form macht keine Probleme, der Klang ist kräftig und klar ... und ich finde immer noch, sie ist eine kleine Schönheit ... ;-)

Nachtrag 12/2012. Inzwischen benutze ich die Honey Dipper doch immer öfter auch zum Sliden ... auch hier alles Bestens. Die Saiten werde ich allerdings demnächst deshalb mal versuchsweise in 13er tauschen, und auch die Saitenlage ein wenig erhöhen ... ich bin da noch am Lernen und benutze zudem schwere Messing-Slides. Normal Fingerstyle soll aber weiterhin möglich sein ... muss ich mal ausprobieren ...
