OVERVIEW

A bluegrass miracle machine!

The Dobro guitar owes its popularity to the wide variety of styles pioneered by many great and influential musicians. Phil Leadbetter, a noted member of influential band J.D. Crowe and the New South for 10 years, now plays with the contemporary bluegrass group Wildfire.

"My new Gibson Signature Guitar has all the punch and volume that I look for in a guitar. It plays very easy and has the 'pop and sizzle' that lots of players are looking for," says Leadbetter. "The solid maple construction and custom design is just flat awesome. I am proud to own such a fine-sounding and well-built guitar!" Includes a soft case.

Solid figured maple body, gorgeous burst finish on body and headstock, signature 12th fret inlay, bound top, bound ebony fretboard, and gleaming fan cover plate make it a truly luxurious -looking stage instrument. A spider resonator with a Fishman resonator pickup and sealed low-gear-ratio tuners make it a player's dream.

FEATURES
  • Figured maple body
  • Fan resonator
  • Bound top
  • Bound ebony fretboard
  • Fishman resonator electronics
  • Nickel-plated hardware

Dobro Phil Leadbetter Resophonic Guitar

By Dan2Deg

from Birmingham, AL

Comments about Dobro Phil Leadbetter Resophonic Guitar:

I play professionally in an bluegrass band, and this took our band to a new level. The deep clear sound of the guitar is unbelievable at this price. Its loud and easy to play. My other Dobros have spent most of their time in their case since I got this one. Phil is a great player and helped design a great Dobro.

GIbson's best

By Anonymous

Comments about Dobro Phil Leadbetter Resophonic Guitar:

This just might be Gibson's best dobro yet: Loud and clean sounding with a truly amazing finish. I have nothing but positive feelings about this instrument and while I can usually find something critical to say about any instrument, I just can't find anything less than satisfactory about this dobro. The only reason I can't rate it a 10 in quality is 'cause only custom jobs get a ten in my book, but this is easily the best value I've ever seen in a resophonic gutiar. Some folks complain about factory set-ups, but everyone I know bought this model dobro agrees that it sounds great right out of the box.

Man.....What a Dobro !!!!!

By Larry Hughes

from Essex Junction, Vermont

Comments about Dobro Phil Leadbetter Resophonic Guitar:

Got my Leadbetter guitar last week. I have played alot of guitars, but this one really kicks. Can't believe the price. I just can't figure how they can build such a nice guitar at such a great price. The same comparable guitar from a "custom builder" would cost thousands!! I am very pleased, and plan to buy another one soon. Very pleased on this end.

What a guitar !!!!

By Duane Whaley

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Dobro Phil Leadbetter Resophonic Guitar:

I just got my new Leadbetter guitar last week. I have 2 Scheerhorns. This Leadbetter sounds as good as any guitar I have ever played. I have always been a "Scheerhorn guy", but I'm going to be playing this one quite a bit. I'm still going to play my Scheerhorns, but I have made room for a new axe. Awesome value, awesome sound. These things are going to have to go up in price. Glad I got mine. Going to buy another one to stick back !!
