We've just received a shipment of new Republics, including this Style 200. It plays well and has that early resophonic growl, and it can definitely be heard - it's not subtle. The Style 200 features a steel body with three six inch resonator cones, and a 12-fret mahogany neck with bound rosewood fingerboard. The scale length is 25.5 inches and the nut width 1 7/8 inches. As a round-neck model, it's an excellent entry point into the vintage style resophonic world. A hardshell case is included.
