Martinez Round-Neck Spider Style Resonator Guitar (Vintage Sunburst)
The Martinez MDR-1RN-VSB Round-Neck Spider-Style Resonator Guitar is a quality built resonator guitar perfect for blues or country style playing. This model is based on one of the pioneering models that made a name for itself in the 1920's, with guitarists that wanted more volume from their acoustic guitars, allowing them to be heard over the drum kit and double bass. This was achieved by housing a spun metal cone to its top, as opposed to the usual slat wooden soundboard that was found on the common acoustic guitar.
This MDR-1RN is a round neck version, and can be played conventionally like any other guitar or also as a lap steel guitar. It is constructed with a Spruce top with two screen-covered soundholes, Mahogany back and sides, Mahogany neck, Rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, Maple saddle, chrome hardware and diecast machine heads.
Finished in a beautiful Vintage Sunburst gloss finish.
