The Resonator Electric

Featured in Guitar Player, Acoustic Guitar, 20th Century Guitar magazines, and the 2008 book Hand Made Hand Played, this electric resophonic guitar is the ultimate blend of resonator and electric technology. From deep, full reso-bite to twangle, it is perfect for blues, rock, country and any combination of these styles.Made custom per order, with choices in neck contour, string spacing, nut width, pickup options, and a rainbow of colors.

These fine electric resonator guitars have been played by Lucinda Williams, Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead), John Jackson (Kathy Mattea, Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Shelby Lynn), The Last Hombres with Levon Helm, renown TV/Film composer Mike Post and many others. John Jackson plays 2 tasty tunes with this guitar on the Austin City limits DVD Lucinda Williams Live from Austin TX. Here’s a passage from Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter’s “Road Journal.”

…One of those gigs of which it could be said “it had its moments.” The best of those moments, to me, were on the new electric resonator guitar Scott MacDonald made for me: Milwaukee Blues, Alabama Getaway and Black Muddy River…it kicks big time ass…”
