The Barnes & Mullins BMR300 resonator guitar is the perfect instrument to begin or continue your foray into authentic blues and bluegrass guitar playing.
This classy parlour size resonator guitar features a beautiful satin spruce top matched with an open pore mahogany back and sides and a single cone, biscuit bridge resonator design with a chrome resonator cover and hardware. The top pairs two f-holes with three circular soundholes for a traditional and stylish aesthetic.
A mahogany ‘round-neck’ and walnut fingerboard meet a slotted headstock with open geared lyra machineheads, completing the BMR300’s ‘old-time’ look and feel.
Tonally, you can expect a naturally loud and articulate sound, and due to its shared resonator design characteristics with the banjo, the BMR300 delivers a distinctive banjo-esque mid / high range metallic assertiveness guaranteed to give your playing a truly authentic bluesy vibe. The combination of spruce and mahogany body tonewoods add a wonderful warmth, while the soundholes further ensure excellent volume and provide a well-rounded low-end.
