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.

Rogue resonator

Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

I was surprised with the build quality coming from the Rouge factory. I used to own a acoustic guitar back in the day when they first entered our marked and I must say it is great instrument for 3rd of the cost. I could not find any quality issues at all. Sound is good too. I would not hesitate to buy it again for a single bit.

    Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

    I just received this resonator--got the sunburst round neck* version. It looks beautiful and sounds very good to my ears. I was looking for an instrument with an authentic tone, and did not want to break the bank, as this will be used mainly for occasional recordings. It was on my wish list, and when the price got below two hundred, I jumped on it--no reason not to, really. Previous reviewers mentioned having to make minor adjustments with a screwdriver, but I seemed to have lucked out--mine came set up very well with no buzzing. Snap one up!
    * apparently, round neck is best for playing like a regular guitar; flat neck is for laptop playing

      Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

      Bought this because i wanted a cheap resonator to play a little slide on. For me,this is.perfect. I got it,tuned it up,not really expecting much,but this thing actually plays pretty darn good! Alot better than i would have thought. The action frets good,and still plays slide very well. A great deal more guitar than I thought I could get at this price. Flat fretboard,which is great for slide work. And very good volume with picks. Not much with bare fingers though. But ive never played a resonator that was great for that. Ive actually had trouble putting it down. A little weak on the sixth string,but thats not a deal breaker. Plan on switching out the tuning keys though. I have a couple that slip,but I was expecting that from the start. I'll slap some Grovers on it. Thats the only issue i have with this guitar. I'm actually pretty surprised. No,its not a 1930's style O National. But if you find one of those for this price,please call me and consider it sold!

        Had actually ordered black but received a sunburst,however,the finish is so surprisingly beautiful I am more than content with this style. What really has cinched my favor with this instrument is the gorgeous tone. I did not expect this caliber of sound for this,relatively,paltry price tag! Impressive!

            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.

              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 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.
