1930s Dobro Model 25 / 27 Resonator Guitar
(No serial number) Excellent condition, roundneck, sunburst finish. This is a Regal built Dobro with either a birch or mahogany body and mahogany neck, f-holes on the upper bout, bound top and back, no sound well. All the finish and hardware is original, including the original cone. Strap button added at the heel. As there is no serial number, it could have been built as early as 1937 or as late as 1942. This was introduced as Model 25 and was renamed to Model 27 in 1939. Just had a neck reset and frets dressed by luthier Jerry Ray so it plays nicely for either fingerstyle or slide. Shows some fretboard wear and most of the finish has been played off the back of the neck, so you know it was well used and loved. Has that nice warm tone with bite that you look for in a vintage Dobro. Comes with a period hardshell case.
