2003 Fine Resophonic 12 Fret with Birds-Eye Maple

Fine Resophonic instruments, made in France by Mike Lewis and Pierre Avocat, are regarded as being among the best handmade Custom Resonator Guitars on the planet. Michael Lewis has built guitars for Eric Clapton, Michael Messer, Robbie McIntosh (Norah Jones) and Louisiana Red. He is one of the most sought after restoration experts for vintage National Guitars. Each instrument is completely hand-built to the very highest standards possible and the attention to detail is faultless.

This resonator guitar is constructed of birds-eye maple and features a single-cone resonator. This instrument shines when played with a slide. Whether playing Piedmont or Delta, this puppy can dial it in like an AM radio. The maple body brings a mellow, smooth tone compared to it’s metal body counterparts, with rich, lingering sustain.

This guitar has some clouding on the coverplate and some binding lifting in the waist area of the top and bottom of the body on both the bass and treble side.
