RedLine Resophonics Econoline Model Large Body Square Neck, #161

Notice that this guitar has been built with our Large Body size and shape. That is to say that the body is a slightly modified dreadnought size. If you are familiar with D-18 and D-28 style acoustic guitars, the body of this guitar is very close to that. Further, when you see "Econoline" on any RedLine Resophonics Guitar, it refers to our lower priced line of resophonic guitars. These are great guitars, still built with the emphasis on top quality tone and playability. It is just that we build them in a way that is less costly to us, and we pass the savings on to you. The Top and Back are made with a maple laminate, very similar to the way this style that resophonic guitars were built many years ago. The Sides are made from solid book-matched hard maple. The neck is made of maple as well, and is fit with an East Indian Rosewood Fretboard with wire frets. The headstock overlay is also made of Rosewood.

Speaking of sound, the large body of this guitar creates plenty of volume. Not only is the body bigger, but it is also deeper (a full 4 3/4" deep at the tailpiece end). This is a very powerful guitar! Lots and lots of volume, yet it also offers a very pleasing tone. You can play it as hard as you like, and it will take it. Also, you can play it with a light touch, and it will de
