This guitar was never built to be a gimmick. I made it because I wanted a steel-bodied Dobro guitar but couldn’t afford one. Back in 1998, I was in the lowest point of my life: lost marriage ... living in a tiny apartment ... no TV ... no internet. Yet in all my boredom and depression, I was still obsessed with music.

We all have a story about "the one that got away." What can we do about it? Rob from Fool Audio Research did something about it.
