It may be a Modest version of the custom job but the price is certainly not modest
But now that resonator itch is just going to grow, Toby. As you know I scratched it and have one that (mostly) hangs on the wall, with a steel slide that has only stayed in a drawer. But it comes down at present for the most basic beginning of finger-style blues practice.
Sorry, Toby, I figured it would be OK since I know that you’d make the leap to Thomann all on your own
I watched some of JJ’s review and I confess I preferred the acoustic sound to the amplified. And if I was looking at a resonator again, buying new, I’d lean towards a metal body rather than a wooden to optimise the twangy delta sound … the one you linked does look sweet
That looke very tasty @TheMadman_tobyjenner very National inspired!
Good job my annual allowance is gone for this year, my new Bass and the amp I need to get (the Blackstar BEAM doesn’t cut it!) Looking at Orange, Ashdown, Ampeg and maybe Boss put paid to that!
I guess I’m just lucky. I managed to bag a Modest Mavis at 12noon UK time on a Monday (they usually sell within an hour) a few weeks back. It was delivered safely last week and boy is it special, so many ideas coming from the tone and suites all types of music, build is really good and action low, easy to play slide. Get one if you can, you won’t regret the effort.
