Dobro Resonator Guitars

Dobro is a trade name, owned by the Gibson company, for a particular brand of resonator guitar. The name originated in 1928 when the Dopyera brothers formed the Dobro Manufacturing Company. "Dobro" is both a contraction of "Dopyera brothers" and a word meaning "good" in their native language. We carry several moderately priced resonator guitars including models from Regal, Morgan Monroe and Gold Tone Paul Beard.

Dobros $250 - $500

Beginning dobro players today are very fortunate to have such a large selection of good, playable resonator guitars available for $250.00 - $500.00, which can fit into just about anyones budget. We play and set up each dobro guitar before sending it to you so you are assured it is ready to play when you receive it. As always, you should buy as much resonator guitar as your budget allows, but if your budget puts you in this price category, rest assured that you have some great resonator guitars from which to "pick!"
