Please note!  The Michael Messer Blues Resophonic Guitar in blue finish is no longer available, and has been replaced by a grey-blue finish that can be seen here.   We’re otherwise maintaining this post for reference purposes. 

The Michael Messer Blues Resophonic Guitar is available in both 14-fret and 12-fret neck versions, the Blues 28 (a wood bodied 12-fret) and the Lightning (a metal bodied, nickel plated 12-fret with lightning frosting).

Its steel bodied 12 fret and 14 fret classic 1930s design with spun aluminium cone, three-on-a-strip vintage-style open tuners, steel body, greyburst 1930s-style paint finish, mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, bone nut, maple biscuit, box bridge.

The Michael Messer Blues resonator guitar is a metal bodied single resonator, biscuit bridge model carrying a very nice blue / black burst finish.

We’ll be going into much more detail on these instruments in the coming days, as we detail the line and add a section for them to our site.

More About Michael Messer

“Not many guitarists would be brave enough to step into guitar design on their own, but that’s exactly what British slide expert Michael Messer has done with the launch of these new resonator models”.

“With over thirty years experience of playing, collecting & reviewing resonator guitars, I have been working with a small guitar workshop to create what I believe are the most authentic & playable 1930s style resonator guitars at an affordable and realistic price. The body dimensions, neck profile, headstock, spun aluminium cone and set-up will give the player the classic tone, volume & feel of a 1930s resonator guitar. I believe these are the only budget-priced resonator guitars available that can boast these features”. Michael Messer

Every guitar is individually hand-numbered and comes with a signed and numbered owner’s manual.
