Description

Rolls Royce meets Resonator: playing this 2006 Ron Phillips Parlor Resonator is an exercise in reso royalty. German Silver construction throughout, 12 frets to the body, and Ron’s art deco aesthetic all come together in a parlor-sized package that’s as easy on the eyes as it is on the ears. Our Phillips is an obvious choice for Open D or Open G, but honestly it sounds fantastic even in Standard, with a hybrid setup that works for fingers and slide. The sort of Resonator that you instantly settle into, lose track of time with, never want to let go.

I have been around Ron's guitars for decades now, and they are very unique in the resonator world. A smoother attack and a fuller sound than most, they feel like you’re playing a 1920s National only they actually tune perfectly, intonate perfectly, and play like a dream.
