I just took delivery of a Miniolian from Republic Guitars. This is a parlor sized wood bodied resonator guitar. I was very pleasantly surprised by both the sound of this thing and the quality of workmanship (it's made in China). As far as I can tell it is all solid woods. The price is great.
Frank from Republic fitted a Schatten pickup, and that sounds pretty good too. It's 12 fret and has a slotted headstock and looks pretty funky. The sound suits the Blind Boy Fuller raggy kind blues. I wanted a guitar that be good for slide and fingerpicking so I didn't have to take 2 or 3 on the road and this might be the thing.
Cheers,
Chris
