The guitar is a platform for development.You can use it for anything you desire.Many of the reviewers do not understand a resonator guitar.The nature of the guitar is such you must learn how to take care of a resonator.Any resonator can and will have buzzes and other sounds that you will need to know how to fix.The Rouge is a fine guitar that you can upgrade and turn it into a tip top guitar that has tone and sustain like the very best.Mine has a bone nut,ebony maple saddle and a Quarterman cone.The guitar sounds fantastic and plays and stays in tune.I did all the work myself and you can learn how to also.Get a DVD on resonator setup and you will become a happier learner.I have been playing since the 70s and have owned at least twenty different resonators and all needed a little tweaking at times.The Rouge is a fine guitar if the string buzzes learn to take care of it.You should know how to set the cone to the desired tone and volume you are looking for also.The resonator is very different type of guitar that can bring you great pleasure.The problem with your Rouge may be you.Go learn how to take care of your guitar.

So after about a year of learning to play the resonator on this instrument I think I'm ready to give it a review.

The Good: It looks great (on the outside) and sounds decent. In fact for the price it sounds awesome.

The Bad: From day one the thing has had this really terrible buzzing that would come and go. You can tell that the spider bridge is ridiculously poor quality. I tried muffling things, readjusting them and even put a piece of fleece under the tail. It didn't work but the buzzing did randomly go away for about 6 months.

The Ugly: The buzzing noise eventually came back and with vengeance. Today I totally disassembled the dobro only to uncover that this is the worst constructed instrument I've ever laid eyes on. There are jagged pieces of plywood, holes that look like they were cut out by a 5 year-old, and all manor of wood chips floating around inside that nobody cleaned out. Once I cleaned out the inside (as best I could) I gently reassembled all the pieces. While screwing the coverplate back on, I then discovered that at least 3 of the 12 screw holes were stripped.

You get what you pay for.
Typical low-end instrument
Pretty on the outside, monstrousity of broken plywood and glue on the inside.
Can't beat the price but you get what you pay for.

    I have been a musician for fourth plus years and have decided to add Dobro to my collection. I bought this guitar to practice on then upgrade but I am so impressed with the tone and playability that I will use this in my shows.

      Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

      This resonator guitar sounds great! The one I received also had many rattles at first. At first, I was bothered and was about to send it back. But, I found it was very easy to fix. With a Phillips screwdriver, I gently tightened the screw that is just underneath the bridge. If you look at the picture of this dobro, look at the center of the spider and you'll see a tiny hole. This is where the adjustment screw is located. It didn't take much at all and this rattling sounding "thing" turned into a beautiful sounding, smooth, musical dobro.

        Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

        This (the sunburst model) is an attractive and great sounding instrument (even with the strings it comes with). Everyone I've shown the guitar to says, "Wow!" For those new to the resonator guitar, note that square neck is for the lap playing method. Round neck is typically played like a standard guitar. Rogue makes both models. I chose the square neck and bought a dobro type steel bar. I tuned to the guitar to the common GBDGBD and it sounds quite good. There are plenty of videos out there to help you get started. This guitar looks like many others that cost a great deal more... I've not had an opportunity to make a hands-on comparison of this guitar to others, but I do know I am very please with the Rogue Spider Classic Resonator. In closing, this instrument is fun to play. At the price I got it at, it is quite a deal.

        I was going to use it as a backup, but despite having less bass than the Dobro, the latter may become the backup.

          Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

          I am impressed with the quality for the money. It is not super loud like my Gretsch, but it is loud enough. I give it 4 stars because when you push it hard it does get a bit buzzy. However I think if I took the time to take it apart and adjust the spider that would probably fix it. Overall fit and finish is very very good.

            I wanted to learn using the slide. My friend loaned me is lap steel. I tuned to open G and started out. There would be a time when I would buy a resonator. I did and when I tuned it I was well satisfied of the sound and ease of playing. I will by more Rogue products.

              Good tone, has medium action so it's good with slide or chord playing.
              You obviously have to tune it when you first get it.
              Over all great beginner.

                  I am a guitar player, and have wanted a resonator for many years. When I found this Rogue Classic Spider Roundneck at such a great price, I knew it was time to make the leap. The existing reviews on the item confirmed my decision.

                  The instrument is just beautiful, with a rich, shiny black body finish and silver colored hardware. It is heavy and feels very sturdy and well-made.

                  Since I am a complete newbie, I am going to have to have someone with experience set it up for me, so I can't report on the sound yet.

                  I am, however, expecting to be very pleased, based on the feel and appearance of this instrument.
