Full Description

Classic resonator with a modern twist

The Hound Dog Round Neck is crafted with a maple body, that yields plenty of bright and tight tonal characteristics making it ideal for bluegrass and folk styles. Maple delivers excellent levels of sustain, and it boasts a strong midrange and excellent bite. The body has 3.5" of depth and features a Dobro single cone resonator for endless sonic possibilities. Topped with a nickel plated fan cover, it contrasts brilliantly with the Vintage Brown finish. Old style, new sounds. It's a classically vintage guitar with a dash of modern finesse - both visually and sonically.

Mahogany neck Paired with pau ferro fingerboard

Player comfort is Epiphone's priority, and this gorgeous mahogany neck is curved for your playing ease, helping keep your mind off fatigue and on performing expressive folksy riffs. Smooth and soft to the touch, it makes transitioning your hand around the neck a breeze. What's more is the rich mahogany provides a lovely warm and dark sonic character, perfectly tempering the bright maple body.

The Hound Dog is topped with a Pau Ferro fingerboard that adds clarity to the overall tone, while its slick surface encourages energetic riffs and explorative licks. Adorned with classic dot inlays, this marvellous fingerboard upholds the looks and sounds of a classic resonator. The mahogany neck joins the body at the 12th fret, and it features a round shape that provides the player with comfort. The mahogany neck infuses the Dobro Hound Dog Resonator with beautiful warmth, resonance, and a clear top end. The neck is topped with a Pau Ferro fingerboard that adds warmth and clarity to the overall tone, while its smooth surface provide a comfortably energetic playing experience.

Ain't nothing but a Hound Dog…

The Dobro Hound Dog Round Neck Resonator is equipped with premium, reliable hardware, including top-tier Grover machine heads, a Spider bridge and a nickel-plated tailpiece. These tuners provide the guitar with precise intonation that you can rely on throughout the night, and the classic Spider bridge features an ebony saddle upon a maple base; which projects a loud and sharp tone.

The Dobro Story

The Dobro brand of resonator guitars is deeply intertwined in guitar history. Synonymous with the resonator, today the Dobro brand's heritage and traditions live on through the Gibson and Epiphone brands, offering players affordable ways to experience the joy of owning a classic Dobro. The Dobro arrived in the 1920s and it has been an American classic ever since. The resonator guitar is an iconic instrument of choice for country, folk and bluegrass styles, with its distinctively resonant tone.
