    An old instrument becoming popular again. Love the way they sound. They were designed to compete with the electric guitars.

    I love the Dobro too...

    You just don't hear that much Dobro guitar in todays "new" country music..

    I love the sound of them..many of Randy Travis's older songs had the Dobro featured in them..

    A lot of the female artists I like had them in their bands too,like Holly Dunn,Rhonda Vincent,and Alison Krauss..I've drifted over into Bluegrass from "country",because it sounds more like the "classic" country I like best..SOME of the newer country is ok,but I'm not very fond of a lot of it..

    If I were to play a guitar,the Dobro is the one I'd love to play the most..Rhonda Vincent has said she'd like to add one to her band..I'd die for that gig!..:crazy:

    I prefer to use the term 'Resophonic' when referring to them because the name 'Dobro' is actually trademarked by Gibson. Still love the sound of them too.
