Default Fine Resophonic Guitars

Hand-built by Mike Lewis in France. They are said to be amongst
the best resophonic guitars you can buy.

Here's a video of Michael Messer playing 3 of his Fine Resophonic
guitars, part of the virtual Issodoun Guitar Festival, in France.

I saw Michael playing the single cone live at a workshop,
years ago. It was wonderful, though he didn't pass it around
for us all to play!

Some of the people who use Fine Resophonic guitars are Eric
Clapton, Louisiana Red, and Johny Hallyday.

And once in a video of the workshop I saw a body with "Brozman" written on it.

No doubt the holy grail of modern Resonators. They are IMO technically better guitars than the golden age Pre-1932 Nationals in terms of playability, intonation, all the things a modern player expects.

But I'd still take an early Style 3 National Tricone first I would just stare at the hand engraving for hours on end.

Gosh - that takes me back! Mike Lewis would call up for a chat once in a while. A lovely guy and definitely the best reso guitar luthier out there. I've played MMs Koa and the squareneck tricone from that video - both are just wonderful instruments.
