Description

Ron Phillips started years ago making by hand his exquisite metal body resonator guitars. He uses German Silver and spins his own cones which enables him to get his distinctive sound that is at once powerful and mellow. It is reminiscent of a 1920s National that has matured fully. The attack is not as harsh as some resos and overtones are very musical. His OM body is 14 3/4" at the lower bout and has a rich, full sound that is equally at home accompanying voice or playing slide or fingerstyle. The woven grills and diamond cone cover grills are not only beautiful but really allow the sound to come forth proudly and his laminated neck is ultra stable. If you've been searching for a higher quality resonator guitar, you'll love Ron Phillips' guitars.

Any player who's seeking a resonator with a voice that will stand out in a crowd will enjoy Ron Phillips' work. He builds beautiful looking guitars from the finest materials and with a voice that is all his own. For me it's the slightly rounded attack and complex color that I like. It makes Phillips Metal Guitars very versatile and distinct. If you are ready for a top quality handmade resonator guitar, be sure to listen to this one...
 
Ron Phillips makes an extraordinary resonator guitar. I love the fact they are powerful but not harsh.
