Scheerhorn L-Body Flame Maple Squareneck Resophonic Guitar

Scheerhorn L-Body Flame Maple Squareneck Resophonic Guitar

Here is something new, rare and wonderful – a brand-new Scheerhorn L-Body Flame Maple Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, built under license by National Resophonic Guitars in San Luis Obispo, California. In 1989, Tim Scheerhorn showed Mike Aldridge his first experimental squareneck and by the end of 1990 Scheerhorn guitars were in the hands of many top pro players and Tim already had a long waiting list. The Dobro guitar construction style had stayed static since the 1930s with virtually no design changes.
