When we think of resonator guitars, it is the National and Dobro designs from the late 1920's that generally come to mind. Indeed, few other names have penetrated this niche market. The Republic range covers both classic single-cone and tri-cone models, adding features that give a modern dimension to these very traditional instruments, such as body cutaways and options like classic nickel or "distressed" metal finishes. Republic Guitars was founded in the town of Rowlett just outside of Dallas Texas, in August 2013 we relocated to our new home in Austin.
