Donny, yer in the UK, so I'd check out Busker guitars. http://www.buskerguitars.co.uk/ Michael Messer has them made in China, like the Republic, and sets them up, from what I understand, very, very nicley.

Cheers, had a look at those, and again, dreamed I had the money. I think Thomann is the best website for Europe, found this:

Harley Benton HBN100

http://www.thomann.de/gb/harley_benton_hbn100.htm

on there for £200. I googled it and it seems it's a decent entry level resonator, and with a change of cone and better setup may be alright. I want to get more hands on with my guitar (in an engineering sense) and so this - and the fact I can afford to do little else - seems like the only option available to me.

Unless someone on here has had a bad experience of these?

Hmmm... may save up for the classic brass and make it worth my while, would still end up (marginally) cheaper than buying the equivalent from the retailers available over here. Further investigation required...

Yep. What Zhyla said. I'm very happy with my Rogue "Classic Brass Bodied Resonator" I got back around Christmastime. Likewise with my Rogue Spider and old Johnson Tricone. If you're not in a hurry, keep watching the "Stupid Deal of the Day" and eventually they'll run them on it. The "Classic Brass" biscuit is usually $350, a very good deal, but they sold a few for $230 on the SDOTD in December.


Seen the Spider on there for $199 and apparently they ship internationally, just e-mailed them to see what the pricing of that is.

I'm more keen on playing slide, would you recommend I save the extra and get the brass bodied Rogue, or will the Spider do a good job on slide? Finances are very tight at the mo (first born due in January) but the idea of having a reso has been like wildfire in my brain, and so am exhausting all my options to get a decent guitar for the lowest possible price. I can live with a 'the spider is good for slide, just not as good as the brass bodied' but couldn't live with 'there's no point in getting the spider for slide, get the brass bodied'.

:blink:

I haven't checked his numbers, but he's a pretty smart guy, so I assume that's why he's waited and is now getting his new Nat at YE.

I've been able to play several new Nationals since then. All I'll say is that you get what you pay for. And when I can pay for it, I'll buy a National.

I've recorded several videos using the guitar. I'll include a link or two if you're interested in hearing it. I hope that this info helps :)
