With its classic Dobro lines, fully bound, highly figured maple wood body, and classic single cone resonator/spider bridge construction, the Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck is stunning in both appearance and tone. In addition to the bridges ebony saddle atop a maple base, the full, warm tone of the Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck is enhanced and projected by a new proprietary Dobro cone and amplified via a Fishman resonator pickup. Combining classic construction with state-of-the-art electronics, the Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck represents Gibson Originals deep respect for both the instruments history and the needs of todays players.

A good starter resophonic, with a mellow sound. Slide works well with this instrument; fingerstyle is restricted to about 5-8 frets from the nut as the string height is set to accommodate the slide. The Fishman pickup works OK, but really needs a pre-amp, or you will need to crank the gain to get much out of it. The pickup is probably not necessary if you are playing in smaller rooms (eg. household). Fit and finish is OK, but not really up to a standard I've seen on other Epiphone guitars. Overall, a good choice if you are starting to play a resophonic, but don't bother with the pickup!
