Paul Beard Goldtone Dobro Demo


I picked up this Dobro as a fairly inexpensive way to get a roundneck resonator.

Previously I had owned a squareneck version of this guitar, so I knew it was a good instrument. For the price, I don’t think you can find a better sounding resonator. It simply sounds amazing and comes alive to me unlike many of the other guitars in this price range.

In the video below I give you a short demonstration of what this guitar sounds like using open g tuning. I’m also using fingerpicks in this video but it is not required.


So what do you think of the sound of this guitar?

You can find this guitar at Amazon. Paul Beard Roundneck Dobro

  1. Hey John,

    Very cool guitar!!!
    Thought the resonators were may more expensive than I thought.
    Think it would be great to see some acoustic slide lessons as well.

    Other question, which video do you think will work for me?
    Just bought your ‘Play like Clapton’ serie.
    Very nice! But it is soooooo hard for me to apply the licks to real music.
    I just can’t get my timing right. Has been my problem for a long time.
    My rhythm without guitar is actually pretty good, but it’s hard to make the licks work in for example a simple 12 bar blues progression.
    So any tips will help me!

    Good luck with the video’s!


  2. Sounds as good as anything I’ve heard on record before … thinkin’ a resonator might be my next G.A.S. attack!

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Never played this one, but it sounds great.

    I picked up a Gretsch Boxcar for under $300 and dang that thing is a mighty fine resonator.
