Get Incredible Tone from This Wechter Resonator!

Abraham Wechter has been designing and building fine instruments for more than 30 years. Having crafted guitars for such artists as John Denver, Al DiMeola, John McLaughlin, Earl Klugh, Jonas Hellborg, BB King, and Rob Ickes, Abraham Wechter has rightly established a solid reputation among musicians the world over for his combination of craftsmanship and innovative design. The Wechter Scheerhorn Resonator Mahogany acoustic resonator guitar gives you the looks and sound you'd expect out of a classic resonator, but goes one better: improvements made to the dimensions, resonator baffle, and soundholes by renowned designer Tim Scheerhorn make this Scheerhorn Resonator Mahogany project and sound even better! This instrument includes a mahogany top, back, and sides, with a nato neck and rosewood fingerboard. It features round, screened soundholes, die-cast tuning machines, and a beautiful finish - the Scheerhorn Resonator Mahogany looks nearly as amazing as it sounds!

The Scheerhorn Resonator Mahogany benefits directly from the resonator designs Abraham Wechter learned from master resonator designer Tim Scheerhorn. In 1988, Tim Scheerhorn began experimenting with the design of resonator guitars to see if he could get a more expressive tone. Two of the key elements that Scheerhorn focused on were the resonator cones and the overall body structure of his resonators. Most off-the-shelf resonator cones are machine stamped, which results in a lifeless tone. Scheerhorn improved the quality of his instruments by hand-spinning his own resonator cones. To match the performance of these resonating elements, Scheerhorn had to build a better resonator guitar. Through his close association with Tim Scheerhorn, Abraham Wechter gained both the fine details of this advanced body design and access to Scheerhorn's hand-spun resonator cones - and the Scheerhorn Resonator Mahogany features both! In fact, Tim Scheerhorn still routinely reviews Wechter's resonator guitars to make sure that they meet his build specifications.

Just as the incredible tone of Tim Scheerhorn's hand-spun resonator cone and precision design are at the heart of Wechter's Scheerhorn Resonator Mahogany, the selection of tonewoods also plays an important role in this fine instrument. The Scheerhorn Resonator Mahogany features a mahogany top, back and sides, nato neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and flush maple fingerboard markers and dot inlays. The Scheerhorn Resonator Mahogany also has beautiful ivory ABS body binding.

The included Wechter Deluxe hardshell case is made to fit your Wechter guitar perfectly and keep it safe. Perfect protection for your Wechter guitar! An ill-fitting case won't do your prized axe any favors; you need a perfect fit! This case is built road tough, and it cradles your Wechter guitar in fitted comfort. Put your Wechter guitar where it belongs - in a genuine Wechter hardshell case!
