When I play and sing without amplification, I have to back WAY off on my Republic so people can hear my voice and harmonica. Tone? I feel bad for the dreadnaught and "Other" resonator players I jam with - my Republic biscuit bites right through and the tone is consistent in any kind of room, and outdoors. The big test for quality tone is this - record it. Recorders, cassette or digital, will usually make a crappy instrument sound crappier and a quality instrument sound even better. I think recorders hear something humans don't. Anyway...my Republic sounds so good on CD (recorded dry and flat!!) it is unreal.
The only other guitar I'll ever buy is another Republic, probably a Reso-Relic Tricone.
(Don't tell my wife!) I first heard heard about them in this forum. Thank you all!!


Hey Old S., if you're not already doing so, you might keep an eye on eBay for Frank's auctions. I nabbed one of his tricones a little while back for about $120 off regular price, due to some cosmetic "blem" that I haven't found & could care less about. It sounds like you'd expect... jes' dandy. And the wife was made mellower by the discount :mrgreen:

Hi all,
Republic Guitars are even better than Nationals, which are for elitist guitar snobs anyway. I won't ever post here again, I just wanted to join the growing number of Republic owners that mysteriously appear on this forum to sing the praises of Republic guitars and then promptly vanish, never to be heard from again.
