Here we have a really rare and stunning 1988 Dobro DM33H 'Hawaiian' Metal Resonator Guitar. 

Made in USA in 1988, this is very similar to the model which appeared on the iconic album cover of 'Brothers in Arms' by Dire Straits.

It features a chrome-plated bell brass body, with Hawaiian Etching, a biscuit bridge and a 10.5" inverted resonator cone which gives this DM33 power and punch. A radius rosewood fingerboard and 14-fret neck make for easy playing.

  • Nickel plated brass body with sandblasted palm tree and moon & stars scene
  • Rolled f-holes
  • Sunburst finished 14-fret round sunburst maple neck
  • 19-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays
  • 1-13/16" nut width
  • 25.5" scale
  • 10.5" resonator cone with biscuit bridge
  • Fan design coverplate

This guitar is particularly good for playing in alternative/open tunings and has a really beautiful and unique tone.
