DOBRO SHO BUD SHOT JACKSON GRAND OLE OPRY
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-06-29)
Price : US $1,000.
Here is a chance to own a piece of Opry history. This Dobro was owned by Shot Jackson, and he used it as a prototype to create his famous SHO-BUD seven string Dobro. My Dad, Loyd Evans, purchased this Dobro from Shot in February of 1965. It has played on stage at the Ryman many times. It was also used in many recordings, including Johnny and Jack, and Pete Drake. The serial # dates this Dobro from 1934-36. Unfortunately, during the change from 6 strings to 7 the Dobro label on the head was removed, and Shot never saw the need to replace it. The resonater is a standard Dobro coverplate pattern and has the Patent # 1896484, Even without the history, this is still a very fine instrument that has the sound that is so hard to find in newer models. The tone is clear and rich, and resonates as beautifully today as it did over 70 years ago. This Dobro has been well taken care of and is in excellent condition. Don't miss this opportunity to own a rare and storied piece of music history. Shipping price will be actual cost, which will run about 40 to 50 dollars in continental U.S. Please feel free to email me with any questions you have.
I HAVE FOUND OUT MORE HISTORY ON THE DOBRO! SHOT PLAYED THIS DOBRO FOR MISS KITTY WELLS WHEN SHE RECORDED 'IT WASN'T GOD WHO MADE HONKY TONK ANGELS'. HE ALSO PLAYED IT MANY TIMES WITH MELBA MONTGOMERY AND ROY ACUFF. IT WAS A REGULAR ON THE OPRY MANY TIMES, AND ALSO WHEELING WEST VIRGI
