1997 Scheerhorn Dobro Standard Body Sitka Spruce and Mahogany

This 1997 Scheerhorn Dobro is in excellent condition for it's age, however it does have the usual wear you would associate with an instrument that is 15+ years old. There are some very minor scratches to the top, back, sides, and some oxidation coverplate as well as a few
dings. We have done our best to capture these scratches and dings in the photographs below, in some cases, they are so slight as to not be photographed. There is a McIntyre pickup installed along with a mic, this system does require a stereo output cable. Original tweed hardshell case included.

Tim Scheerhorn redesigned the Dobro from the ground up. He uses all solid woods and has always used solid woods, instead of laminates. He took the Dobro to be an acoustic instrument, which it is, and wanted to make the most resonant guitar he could make. He thought that the sound well inside resonator instruments "locked all the resonant qualities of the top and back" inside the guitar. He uses internal baffles to capture the guitar and a specially designed ramped, parabolically curved baffle that starts at the waist and curves toward the neck block. This gave the Dobro far more projection and a much bigger sound. This baffle design also helped eliminate the soundwell chamber.

Tim is no longer taking orders for his instruments as his back log grew and grew to years for those lucky few able to order one. You won't be seeing any of these anytime soon.

This particular guitar is Tim's Standard body size with a 14 3/16" lower bout, making it more compact than the larger L-bodies. The top of this particular Scheerhorn is Sitka, the top has been stained which gives it a very unique pattern that looks astonishing. The body and fingerboard is beautifully bound with Ivoroid bindings, contrasting the dark edges of the finish quite nicely. Chrome Schaller tuners will ensure that staying in tune is not a problem!
