The 2011 Summer NAMM show was a veritable candy store for guitarists. With so many new instruments and effects, it was difficult to take them all in! One very notable showing came from the new Roundneck Resonator guitar from Wechter Guitars. Available in both traditional and single-cutaway body styles, the Roundneck Resonator gives you the playability of a standard acoustic guitar, with the distinct tonal character of a resonator guitar.
Designed in collaboration with resonator legend Tim Scheerhorn, the 19-fret Roundneck Resonator sports a mahogany top, back, and sides, with a nato neck and a rosewood fretboard. It also features the premium Scheerhorn resonator cone for optimum tone. To top it all off, the Roundneck Resonator is given the same treatment as every Wechter guitar: a Plek Pro fret optimization for perfect action and sustain right out of the case.
Wechter is not new to resonator guitars. Abraham Wechter has been collaborating for years with the likes of Tim Scheerhorn and Rob Ickes to make some of the best-playing, best-sounding square-neck resonators available. Though the square-neck resonator is a favorite of bluegrass players, the traditional feel of the Roundneck Resonator guitar makes that unique resonator tone accessible to players of virtually any style of music.
