We’re really excited to stock this new model from Baton Rouge because it’s really really cool! It’s very rare to find a resonator at the price point that has a pick up. You can plug straight into an amp using the nice passive pickup so it is ready to gig, play in a group or just have fun with a home.
The retro look is really well done and the satin finish with the wood stain gives a really tactile comfortable feel. It even features vintage look geared tuners.
The sound is deep and punchy. This isn’t like one of those cheap resonators where the sound is thin and metallic. The reso growl and banjo like ping is there courtesy of the biscuit bridge and spun cone, but the wooden body gives is a gutsy depth.
It also features a blurb fretboard which makes it very comfortable to play and is string with aquilas. Very nice!
