Classic resonator guitar from the one and only Dobro®
Epiphone presents the new Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody guitar with an easy to play Round Neck. The Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 resonator guitar features the same renowned sound of the American original that's been dazzling and inspiring musicians since the late 1920s.
There are a few guitars like a Dobro® that can cross generational lines and attract the instant attention of players everywhere no matter what style of music they play. In the world of electric guitars, everyone wants a Les Paul. And for acoustic guitar fans, every player wants a great metal body resonator guitar.
The Dobro® Company, much like Epiphone, is one of the revered names in the history of American guitar makers. And the new Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody, brought to you by Epiphone, is the perfect instrument for players who want the beautiful articulation of a metal body guitar for blues, fingerpicking, jazz, or even light slide for classic Delta or Hawaiian styles.
Classic Resonator Body:The body of the Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 is made from Bell Brass with nickel plating with a 14 1/8" Lower Bout Width, a 10 3/8" Upper Bout Width and a depth of 3-1/2". The tone of the Hound Dog M-14 is rich and full with a gentle decay that makes both fingerpicking and slide smooth and easy in all registers.
The Mahogany neck has a natural satin finish with an easy-to-fret 1960s SlimTaper™ neck that's joined to the body at the 14th fret with Neck-Stick Construction. The Rosewood fingerboard has pearloid "dot" inlays with 19 medium frets, a 12" radius, and a bone nut.
Dual Action Trust Rod: Over the years, the first generation of original Dobro® instruments from the 1930s have suffered warped necks and poor intonation that's difficult to manage without an expensive neck-reset. The modern new Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 does away with all of those old problems thanks to a dual action adjustable truss rod and a bone nut which makes it easy to set up the Hound Dog M-14 to any style or action. The strings sit on a Hard Maple saddle with an Ebony cap. The headstock has a Rounded "Dobro" shape seen on rare (and expensive) vintage models. The Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody also has a vintage styled 4-color "Dobro" decal with the iconic harp logo.
Grover® mini-Rotomatic™ Machine Heads: Tuning the M-14 is made smooth and intuitive with Grover® mini-Rotomatic™ machine heads with an 18:1 ratio. And the Hound Dog M-14 comes ready to play with D'Addario EJ42 medium gauge strings.
