Overview

With its classic Dobro lines, fully bound, highly figured maple wood body, and classic single cone resonator/spider bridge construction, the Gibson Original Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck is stunning in both appearance and tone. In addition to the bridge's ebony saddle atop a maple base, the full, warm tone of the Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck is enhanced and projected by a new proprietary Dobro cone and amplified via a Fishman resonator pickup. Combining classic construction with state-of-the-art electronics, the Hound Dog Deluxe Roundneck represents Gibson Original's deep respect for both the instrument's history and the needs of today's players.

This guitar is incredible! The guitar sounds great with finger-picking, with thick picks, and thin picks! It has an unbeatable sound for the price and is certainly a professional-quality instrument. The only reason I give it four stars is that the pickups aren't the best by any means. The pickups are quiet and take in a lot of feedback... and though the sound is still alright, it sounds fundamentally different from how the guitar sounds acoustically. I would certainly recommend either changing the pickups or simply putting a mic in front the guitar during a gig. But overall, this guitar was phenomenal!

The Hound Dog sounds good acoustically and looks great, but I bought it specifically to amplify and use in live music situations. The Fishman pickup is an old style, under the resonator cone type. I plugged it into a Crate Gunnison acoustic amp and it was difficult to get any volume. The tone was shrill, even with bass on the amp maxed out. I then tried it with a Fishman preamp. That improved the volume level, but I could never dial in a tone that I liked. I could never get an amplified tone that was close to the acoustic, unplugged tone. If the company updated this resonator with a newer under saddle Fishman Nashville pickup, it would probably sound great. The Hound Dog was sent back to the pound.

    Comments about Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck Acoustic-Electric with Pickup:

    I've been using finger picking and slide on my new Dobro. Epiphone had really done a great job on these guitars. I've always wanted a Dobro, and I'm not disappointed at all!!! It has a great sound and the round neck makes it very easy to play

    Hound Dog or Hound pup?

      Comments about Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck Acoustic-Electric with Pickup:

      A good looking guitar. Not as loud or as resonant as I expected but the inbuilt passive pickup will be useful for gigging even if I do have to use a pre-amp.
      On balance I am very happy with it so far, but I would have to say it is more a pup than a Hound dog.
      Delivered quickly and cheaply by the guys at Musicians Friend.

      Comments about Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck Acoustic-Electric with Pickup:

      I own this and the red square neck Dobro with the f holes,looks like stained mahogany,back to this round neck,
      An amount of these reviews state ,the volume doesn't work well plugged in,
      I don't have a problem with mine,its good to go,
      So this is more of a statement to many of you,
      Yes this Dobro is very nice,any way you look at it,no its not a Gibson,it is an Epiphone made in Chine,
      When you purchase this bobro,and you unpack it,let it gain ambient temp,and tune it,dont forget to tune the cone,listen
      the cone is where the heart of this instrument is,for a good tone and a loud volume,it aint all about a straight neck,or you likes in strings,this is like any instrument ,it must be set up correctly
      So here is my cuff to many of you,
      if you didn't set it up to play properlydont give it a bad wrap!

        Hound Dog Acoustic Round Neck.

        By Geoff Shapland

        from Australia

        Comments about Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck Acoustic-Electric with Pickup:

        I am very happy with this purchase, great sounding.. The neck feels good for chords. I was surprised at the weight. My Blues buddy who has played professionally since the 70's was "Blown Away Man". It's a real DOBRO.
        The pick up is good quality. It's good plugged up and not plugged up. I have a Fender Blues Junior tube amp.
        Finish is great satin, Govers !! + Fishman. The neck came up like a gun barrel.
        Excellent value for money, even if you dont know to adjust a truss rode (instructions supplied and allen key).

        This resonator sounds amazing!!! Came in with the neck a little warped but after a few turns with a wrench, it plays perfectly.

        Awesome Resonator

        from Staunton, VA

        Comments about Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck Acoustic-Electric with Pickup:

        Don't let the reviews fool ya. As an active blues musician I sware by this resonator!! It is a passive pickup...use an L.R.Baggs Gigpro pre-amp.Now there is where it gets its MOJO!! HUGE SOUND! In addition, acoustically...It will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck! one of the best buys out there!!!

        Sweet item

        By Stretch

        from mississippi

        Comments about Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe Round Neck Acoustic-Electric with Pickup:

        I bought this on musician's friend and it really sounds great! The only real problem that I had was that the pickup is very quiet. The sound man where we played had to max out the board just so it could be heard and that threw off our other equipment. I have started miking it and that works a lot better. Other than that it's great looking and very affordable with a great tone.
