Lets face it guitar done well is a life long pursuit and an obstacle like poor playability just robs you of time. Republic seems to have found the balance from what I've seen here and experienced with mine.

There are definitely others brands and clearly a great player can draw so much out of a lesser instrument but for folks who can afford a moderately priced instrument the reward of choosing something in this middle ground is there.

Enjoy that thing, they make a beautiful sound, there is mojo hiding in that tin for sure :)

I was all set to spend the roofing money on a National or Weber resonator when members of the group mentioned Repuplic. I finally found one and played it and I was sold. new they are cheap enough, but as it's my first resonator I thought I'd try used, $300 later a used biscuit was delivered to my door! I've played it in open D and G, and in standard. Might not have the reputation of the National or the cache of the Weber, but I don't really need either. I think it sounds great, but I have to get used to the new balance.

Again, thanks for the great advice that delivered to me a great box that exactly meets my needs! Cheers, Robert

1. Resonator guitars are not, and never have been, the key to traditional blues slide guitar music,
2. the key (with all) successful guitar work lies with the guitarist, not the guitar, and
3. resonator guitars are way cool anyway, so play what you want and have fun!

Most guys played wood flat tops. Son House and Booker White played Nationals post-war, but wood guitars on their earlier stuff., Fred McDowell played cheap Harmony F-holes as well as electric, never a National.

It is a myth the the resonator guitar is essential for the "authentic" blues sound. They do however sound great and are fun to play as well as giving plenty of volume. Plenty of good reasons for owning a reso then, but any guitar will do for slide. don't wait for the "right" guitar, just get playing, it's mostly in the fingers not the instrument.
