    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.

    Poorest quality instrument I've ever owned but cheaper than any starter dobro

    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.

      Very nice guitar. Read all of the reviews good and bad. Glad I bought this Classic Spider Resonator guitar. I play almost everyday and seem to pick this one up over the electric or acoustic guitar that I have.

      Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

      I'm new to the Resonator Guitar, but have been Playing Guitar for over 50 years now. This is a Beautiful Instrument, Well Built, Great Tone, and Plays Well. I read a review about knowing your Resonator, and how to care for it, and I totally agree, such as with Any Guitar Gibson, Martin, whatever the brand It takes care and Know how to keep it Top notch. Set Ups and maintenance are required. This Rogue Guitar has a Rattle, but It will only require a bit of Set Up to end it. The Tone is Awesome, and I look forward to Enjoying this Guitar for Years to come. Thanks Musicians Friend for another great Deal.

        Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

        Playing non-amplified outdoor shows makes it hard to be heard, and I needed something LOUD. I'd used a brass-bodied resonator a few years back, but I got tired of lugging it around-- it was heavy! After next using a jumbo for a few years it was loud, but not loud enough. This one does the trick.

        I reviewed this a couple weeks back right after I set it up but before the road test. I've had the chance to play two weekends of shows since, and there are some more things I can say about it now.

        First, it's a beautiful looking instrument. I received many compliments from other musicians and fans alike. The sound is booming, and can carry to the back of an audience of 200 no problem.

        Second, I'd read several reviews suggesting the workmanship was poor, badly cut holes, complaints of wood chips and glue residue inside, unexplained buzzes/rattles, etc. I will say that while slapping out a rhythm to open a song, the screen on the bass side popped out and rolled into the audience. It was returned and I was able to glue it back in that night and it's fine now-- BUT: the hole cut for the screen was perfectly round, and there was NO DEBRIS inside the guitar at all. Very clean inside.

        I am pleased and impressed, and would definitely buy another.

        In a few weeks I'll be adding a pickup so I can work it in to amplified shows.

          Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

          Wow. I'm impressed so far. Having read most of the reviews, I was a bit skeptical, but I needed a new road guitar. I play many outdoor shows, sometimes in extremes of heat or rain, and I need to replace my road guitar every four years. I chose the roundneck version, one that had been returned but listed in mint condition. I am impressed. No defects, no buzz, no problems, especially for a return. Anyway, I own two other resonators (Rogue brass-bell body and a Jay Turser JT900) and of the three, this one has the most solid sound. Much warmer than I was expecting. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works on the road -- I'll find out this weekend.

            Comments about Rogue Classic Spider Resonator:

            Bought the sunburst square neck model as a starter dobro for myself. Loving it so far! The instrument came with very few/almost no marks on the finish. The tuners seem to be pretty stable so far, and the resonator is nice and solid. I can't find anything t complain about so far.

            When I was shopping around, I did look at the Regal dobros, but they were easily a couple Benjamins more for what seems to be about the same quality instrument. Not much middle ground in the dobro world!

            I'd definitely recommend this to beginners like myself, it's a nice instrument that won't break the bank. May not hold a lot of value for resale, but considering the initial investment, I'd say it's still a great deal.

              I got mine as a surprise birthday present from my wife. Taking it out of the box, the frets were rough and the strings were rusty. A few little tweaks here and there and I can tell its an instrument that will be with me for life. Love it.
