GUEST,Les B. 'Johnson' resonator guitars ~ ??? (41) RE: 'Johnson' resonator guitars ~ ??? 09 Feb 05

I bought a Johnson resonator about three years ago at Elderly Instruments. It was in the $400 - $500 range as I remember. (I got mine on a $100 discount sale)

So far it's been a pretty good instrument, but I don't play it all the time. The early ones were made in Eastern Europe and then they started coming from China. Johnson also makes regular guitars and banjos - haven't tried any.

At last year's Seattle Folk Life festival I saw more Johnson resonators than any other kind being played by buskers.
