Have you come to a decision, Cbeati2? As I have already mentioned, I bought a steel bodied, biscuit bridge triolian from Republic and am very happy with the sound for my pure blues or blues based style (btw if you look on YouTube at Rory Gallagher playing live "Too much Alcohol", then that is the sound I can get from my guitar). But I just remembered that a couple of years ago whilst still wrestling with reso-gas, I tried at a local music shop, an Epiphone Hound Dog, a spider bridged, wood bodied Dobro and remember thinking how "un-reso" it sounded. It seemed very mild and lacked that serious "down home and dirty" sound that I can get from my steel body. I put the mildness down to it being a wood body which would give it a more mellow sound rather than the spider bridge. So anyway, what have you decided? :D Peace


I did buy the Brass bodied Rogue as I mentioned at the start and have been quite happy with it...happy enough to not crave another resonator for a while as it has filled my needs. I notice the Rogue Triolian is on sale now and it caught my eye, so I revisited the Triolian/Spider convo we had here. Sorry for not replying...I need to come back here much more often as I wasn't aware of your question. :oops: The answer...I haven't decided. Recently I have begun to realize how bad I am at making decisions...or not making them I guess is a better way of putting it.

"Rory Gallagher playing live "Too much Alcohol", then that is the sound I can get from my guitar" -->That sure is sweet...great purchase!

Thanks goldbrick...I might go that route...thinking loud and bluesy, yet a bit mellower than my Brass bodied Rogue for that change of tone. Looking at the Resos at Rondo music too but the seem to be all spider bridges...and shipping is $100 up to Alberta, Canada. I have heard good things about Rondo, and my son bought an electric from there and it is a beauty.

I have it tuned to open d. It gets played out a lot because it looks cool and its cheap enuff that its not a closet queen-yet looks like all the other resos out there for the most part so the audience doesn't know if its a 100 guitar or a 1000 dollar guitar
My only issues are the neck is thinner than I prefer and the intonation of the low E string on fretted notes is a bit sharp but I just tune it a little flat so I can get a decent boogie rhythm-I like cheap guitars
All in all its a great 150 dollar investment and I play the hell out of it

I think "LaGrange" might sound pretty good on a D28 :)

Kidding aside, there is a balance between chops and gear. A fancy guitar or a new piece of gear may not make you play better, but the improved sound or playability my inspire you to woodshed more. The majority of my practice time is on a seriously beat up backpacker with a plunking tone just this side of a ukelele. The action is awful. Anytime pick up anything else, I love how much better I sound.

Well I certainly didn't intend to add to the lexicon of "nice catchy little sayings..." . My sole purpose was to encourage the OP that the blues can be played on a wide variety of instruments. But these are the sort of exchanges that can lead to ruffled feathers and wasted words and I want none of that. So I'll leave Neonmoony to play his blues on his instruments while I play my blues on mine. Oh and I'll repeat "good luck with your search" to Cbeati2. :D Peace

They are wonderful, aren't they? I've got a Tele neck pickup mounted in the coverplate of my reso. It sounds raunchy.
