My SN Reso for your solidbody electric? Wanna trade?

Postby bignick » Mon Mar 05, 2007 3:40 am

I have a lap steel and my Beard, I really do not need another squareneck reso floating around. I have a lot of work into this one and it is almost completely maxed out with upgrades. About $200 worth.

It is a Johnson Delta Blues model SN Reso. I bought it last Fall NEW from Elderly, hasn't seen much play.

Upgrades include:

- Quarterman cone (I also have the Continental stock cone)
- Leveled 14 Spider with pre cut and pressure fit Duratone Saddles ($100) from HarperResophonics.com.
- Bone nut
- Enlarged soundwell
- Removed the soundhole screens too. A lot louder sounding.
- SKB hard case included
- Dobro instructional book and DAddarios Jerry Douglas Flatwound string sets also included. I have a couple of normal DAddario Reso sets too, same size.

Everything was cut for maximum string height and projection. I have had a lot of people compliment me on how good it sounds for a "beginner" reso at Bluegrass festivals. And that means a lot from guys who play nothing but custom made Harlows and stuff.

I'm looking for another electric solidbody of some kind. I'd probably sell for $400 with SKB hardshell case, so something in that area. I'll consider pretty much anything but would love a Telecaster (can be a clone) or a hollowbody with a Bigsby (Ibanez Artcore or something). The only thing I don't really want is an LP style guitar. I have two already.

Altered price guys:

Even with mods, I could probably only get $350 with case, because they do not exactly add to the value. If you are considering a squareneck, this is the one.
