Howdee folks. About 10 years ago, I had a Tanglewood TBS 1000 roundneck resonator. Like a fool I sold it, so will revisit. It was all steel (or whatever the body was made out of) and was 14 fret, and had a regular acoustic guitar style neck, which I liked.
A few years back, I got a Republic Resolian Parlor 12 fret, which I just couldn't get used to. The neck was way too thick for me.
I think this time around I would get a wooden body resonator as I think they sound a bit warmer.
They seem to be available cheap enough and wide ranging. I'd consider installing a pickup, but not sure if there could be complications here? I'd stick one by the neck.
I'm not sure of the technical term for the two smaller holes on the shoulders of the body? Would a reso with these prevent me from installing certain types of pickups?
I think I'd steer clear of the parlor bodies, because of the thick necks.
Any mid range recommendations on 12 or 14 fret roundneck wooden bodies?
