Cool NO! It's not a HUBCAP! It's a Resonator and it was FREE!

I won a Lebeda reso guitar at another internet forum. It's handmade in the Czech Republic by Jiri Lebeda and his master craftsmen.

Before this guitar arrived, I'd never even held a squareneck dobro before, let alone played one. This guitar is beautiful! How I lucked into this I'll never know.

The sound is sweet and powerful. I'm still a total beginner as a reso player, so I haven't been able to really dig into this enough to coax more than a few standard slide licks out of it. It seems louder than my martin HD-28 and that guitar is a cannon!

Beautiful guitar. I was looking more at the finish than the action. It looks like a piece of fine furniture, but yeah, is the nut supposed to be cut that high?

Congrats on the win.

It's not supposed to be played like your average shred guitar!

Looks nice! And for free, you can't go wrong. Grats!

I really like the wood, understated yet still beautiful. I've never played a square neck but the roundnecks i've played before had more or less a similar action to my Yamaha, so i guess you're supposed to use roundnecks like normal acoustics.

A squareneck is played sitting down, or you can hang it from a long strap. Either way it's played with a short pedal steel bar with the left hand over the top. Most players use a thumb pick and 2 finger picks on the right index and middle. faster runs are played using right hand finger rolls, ala banjo style.

Oh, I "twigged it," I just wondered if the nut was really supposed to be THAT high. I got it now.

I saw a guy recently playing a National electric resonator that sounded just awesome. Blew me away with its bluesy-rock tone. It was thinner than a typical resonator but it also had a couple of pickups and the variety of good tones he could get out of that thing was amazing.
