Bourbon Street BSR-1C-W Wood Body Resonator Guitar

Resonator guitars – also known as resophonic guitars were originally designed to be used in dance orchestras. Regular acoustic guitars were simply overwhelmed by the horns and percussion instruments in those orchestras. By conducting string vibrations through the bridge to a spun aluminium cone (resonator), instead of the guitar’s sound board (top), resonator guitars became prized for their loud and distinctive tone. Eventually electric amplification solved the problem of inadequate volume and the resonator guitar settled into its new life with bluegrass and the blues.

The Bourbon Street ‘1C’ is more than a tribute to those great guitars. Bourbon Street are a small boutique manufacturer specialising in steel guitar design and innovation. Their mid-priced instruments punch well above their weight comparing to much more expensive instruments.

Featuring a laminated Flamed Maple body with a vintage sunburst Finish, hand spun Continental aluminium cone and a comfortable round mahogany neck, the BSR-1C-W combines tradition with modern manufacturing techniques along with a punchy single coil pickup and makes a beautiful addition to any guitar collection.
