“Craig” lap steel (with a difference)
Made in the US of A, the unique feature here is the Pat Pending tilt adjustable neck. A real piece of history. We can tell you that this is a 50’s baby. The addition of a genuine Gretsch roller bridge and pick up gives amazing tone and just look at that Pin striping!
Again the talented hand of Duane Brown (www.browncocustoms.com)

National Rosita Resonator Guitar
America was not yet to enter the war when this baby was made. However the USA was building some fine instruments. This is one example of that time. We’ve brought her back to life with a neck reset and refret, everything is ready to go and the vintage tone shines. At $2900 here is a chance to have a pre war dream.

How cool is this? We don’t see many of this particular model, given that the building of most wooden Dobro’s of this period were being being “farmed out” to the Regal guitar Co.
This one however is all Dobro Resonator guitar and all original right down to the cone and tuners….
History in the offing for:
