sounds great despite poor setup
I really love the sound of this dobro, however the inspection that Sweetwater hails, didn't catch the fact that when you tune the 3rd string, it pops right before your reach "in tune". Then it goes past "in tune". You have to really work with it to get it right. If the technicians really did the inspection, then they would have caught this issue, because I caught it the first time I tried to tune it. Other than that, It's a great instrument. I am trying to work out the tuning issue myself without having to send it back.
