If you're handy, and you don't mind imports, this is a nice Dobro. I love the tone, and I think most of the imports (Johnson, ect.) are made by the same people. I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on a Dobro, and I got what I paid for. The dealer gave me a $50.00 rebate for the modifications I had to make.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $325.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Ebay
Features:
Korean made. Bell brass chromed body. I believe the neck to be maple. Dreadnaught style body with stamped F holes. Sealed tuners (grover knock-offs).
Playability:
This dobro was received with an extememly high action. I found the neck heel to be loose. I added a strap button to the neck heel, with an attaching bolt (including nut and washer) which I drilled all the way through the body. This pulled the heel up tight, and resulted in a much more playable action.
Sound Quality:
Has a beautiful tone. Loud and typically Dobroish. Playing down at the bridge yields a more tinnier sound, while playing closer to the neck warms the sound up dramatically.
Durability:
It's steel.....how much more durable can you get?
