Your steel/resonator guitar suggestions? AND: a pickup that has resonator qualities?

    Hey, all.

    So, what's a good-enough/good steel resonator that's not, say, over $500?

    Also, are there any pickups for standard (wood-bodied) guitars that have resonator qualities?

    Thanks!

    Don,t know if your a lap or Regular Player but these come in both configs.

    These are equipped with the very best pickup available to date With a real Dobro sound.
    As you mentioned Reso Qualities.
    This is a $200 pickup in a good starter reso.
    I owned one of these for live band use.
    The downside is you will need the JD Fishman Aura to complete the system..which you can add at a later date.
    I have used the Berringer Acoustic AD9? pedal till I found a JD Aura,,with pretty good results.
    With the complete system you can play at full band Volumes Live!!
    Check out You-tube there are many vids with Dobro Players using this, and
    Maybe around still of Jerry Douglas using this very model.

    I play Bluegrass Dobro and have used every pickup that was made!!
    PM me if you have any more gear Questions.Glad to help.
