Description

This was the first of our ResoDream Series from S.B. MacDonald. Dream Guitars Owner Paul Heumiller collaborated with Scott MacDonald to create this custom version of Scott's Resonator/Electric Guitar. Scott has built guitars for Lucinda Williams, Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead), renown TV/Film composer Mike Post, and many more greats. We at Dream Guitars have been searching for a really well designed electric resonator and this is it! Scott is a highly skilled artisan so the build quality is top notch and the playability is superb. The ResoDream features a custom high output Lindy Fralin Split Blade Pickup that is exclusive to this model, along with Gotoh 510 tuners and a custom Cedar Creek case. In addition there is a Fishman cone pickup and the two come together through a Fishman preamp. There is a stereo jack so you can separate the cone pickup from the magnetic for added versatility. Wether you play side, fingers or both, this little reso is sure to satisfy!

This ResoDream from Scott at S.B. MacDonald Guitars really offers something unique in the guitar world. The special wound, extra hot, Fralin pickup just screams and has power both clean and overdriven. Roll in the resonator pickup and the twang and spank join in the fun. I play it through an electric amp for more of a rock tone and through an acoustic amp, as demoed here, for more resonator in the mix. You can also split the two thanks to the stereo jack and use both amps. This is one very cool guitar.
 
What a cool and unusual guitar this is. I found myself wanting to play things I've never even tried to play before. I can see this being a great addition to any guitarist's collection. I love it. great concept for an acoustic/electric guitar. The electric pickup can be used to create screaming distorted slide leads while the acoustic pickup can help recreate that swampy blues sound that only comes from old resophonic guitars. It looks cool too.
