Who can argue with the looks of this cool tricone resonator?
There’s limited options when it comes to amplifying resophonic guitars and even fewer when it comes to the tricone style. There’s three resonator cones underneath the “T” bridge cover and a separate pickup for each would be tricky to pull off. We looked into three possibilities and settled on the Lace-designed Slimline humbucker by National Guitars. Installation was very straightforward and the sound was rich and warm, while still translating the unique metallic quality of resophonics. Thumbs up on the National Slimline and thumbs up on this cool Recording King guitar.
