Price : US $301.00
This is a Dobro Original Hound Dog, round neck, resonator guitar. Serial number on end of head stock reads 7 185 R 92 B. I think the 92 indicates the year it was made.
It is a used guitar with nicks and scuffs and a professionally repaired heal crack which is stable. I know very little about these guitars so I can not offer a lot of opinion on it's playing condition other than it seems to be in good playing order and sounds like I think it should. I am a luthier and have installed a new bone nut and a maple/ebony saddle. I also added a truss rod cover as the original was missing. It has the old style open slot tuners which appeared on the Dobros before Gibson bought them out. This tells me it is a model made sometime before 1993. Tuners work well and easily. Don't know if they are original or not. All else seems to be in great shape with no craks in the body. I don't know about the action but I do know that Dobros offer a number of ways to adjust the neck without a neck reset. All in all a guitar that seems in good condition. According to ''Acoustic Guitar Bluebook'' This was produced by Original Musical Instruments Company while under the ownership of Chester and Mary Lizak.
The lowest low value on a hound dog is placed at $400 so I have place my minimum bid at half that with no reserve. I will let the bidders establish it's value. Sorry, no case.
Thanks for looking and good luck.
