Resonators just don't come as slick as this. Ron Phillips' hands have crafted numerous powerhouse resonator guitars, but this large-bodied Parlor has got to be one of the cleanest, most angellic voices we've had the pleasure of hearing in the shop. Slide players, in particular, will love the setup, and that extra peppering of smooth, silky tone that only the German Silver body Phillips' hand-spun aluminum resonator cone can provide. The predominant aesthetic in Ron's work is influenced by the Art Deco movement--which this Resonator Guitar exhibits in the elongated and asymetrical F-holes and the dashed arrows encircling the bridge.
With a voice so moving and sustained, it's no wonder Phillips' large-bodied Parlor model is so succesful: thanks to that custom resonator cone, the guitar has crystalline clarity and a clean energy to the setup.

"It's guitars like these that I started playing slide guitar in the first place. In DADFAD, it's haunting and somber; in Open E, uproarious. There's something about German Silver that sends shivers up my spine." - Paul Heumiller
"Great blues and ragtime guitar, currently with the action set a bit higher to accommodate slide playing. I really enjoy playing these smaller-bodied guitars. With the extra depth, the tone doesn't suffer but it's more comfortable for women and anyone who likes a smaller guitar, like me." - Al Petteway
