The very lovely Billy Bragg was talking about this on FB. Thought you geetar types might appreciate it. x

Billy says:
"I fell in love with resonator guitars when I saw Ronnie Lane playing a wooden bodied Dobro with Slim Chance in the mid-1970s. I bought my first one, a National Reso-Phonic student guitar in 1984, on my first US tour. Since then I've added a few more to my collection. I was in Vintage and rare Guitars in Denmark Street in London earlier this week when I found this amazing book on the history of National, Dobro and other brands made by the Dopyera Brothers.

Take a look at the illustrations in this book, all drawn by the author. It features brief biogs of artists who have played the guitars and an extensive list of serial numbers in the back. Even if you're not into resonators, this book is 423 pages of guitar heaven."
