John Hornby Skewes Dobro Copy Reviews
Spruce top, probably laminated, but I can't get clear view of edge, rosewood fingerboard, rest of woodwork mahogany, aluminium spider and cone under chromed steel grille. Natural top and brown stained back, sides and neck. Terrific rich twangy tone, suits my rocky voice well. Bottom end got slightly fuller than usual for a dobro after a hole got knocked in the side.However, it has served me well for years of unplugged performances and general practice. Feel has deteriorated a little, but still sounds good enough to be a pleasure to play. Gets used for unplugged rock and a bit of blues and country. Being a dobro, it is very good for slide playing.
