Description

Here’s a treat you don’t often see: one of Jason and Pharis Romero’s wood-bodied reso guitars. Figured Maple with a dark stain for the body and neck, a National brass coverplate and cone, custom brass tailpiece with "Romero" on the side, and a slotted headstock for vintage flair. The J. Romero Wood-Bodied Resonator spins function into fashion by leaving the screws of the brass fingerboard extension exposed, and gold Gotoh tuners matched with gold EVO frets.
The biscuit cone bridge and wood body lend a delicious darkness to the tone, which is contrasted to the cool, bell-like timbre of the treble strings. This is a resonator guitar that you can play softly and still get an enveloping, articulate tone. We found the setup teased into the sweet spot between fingerstyle and slide, adding to the dynamism this J. Romero reso is capable of.
It’s a breeze to play, with a voice for smooth pieces and rousing blues: we adore this 2015 Romero Resonator.

Jason and Pharis Romero are extremely well respected in the banjo world, and this is the first resonator guitar from him that I’ve seen. I absolutely love it. Not only is it super cool flamed Maple everywhere with bronze bits, but the tone is smooth and powerful. Perfect for slide or fingerstyle blues. Don’t miss this one.
