Default Reso Kit?

Really want to build a round-neck, biscuit bridge reso from a KIT (wood bodied, not steel). I know StewMac doesn't make their Blues Resomaster anymore (because I emailed and asked please, please please....but no luck). I'm a pretty decent woodworker, and build hand-planed bamboo fly rods, but not quite up to scratch building. Anyone have a source for a similar kit? I can find some squareneck / spider bridge "dobro" kits...but not what I'm looking for. Thanks.

Excellent suggestion! Their kit isn't quite what I'm looking for (spider bridge instead of biscuit bridge), but I contacted them to see if they're willing to "swap out" parts to get what I need. We'll see! Thanks.

I believe Saga started out selling kits for making solid body guitars. I'd check with them to see if they sell a kit version of their Regal dobros.
