"The construction is impeccible ... the work of a real craftsman. What strikes me most about my B&B is the clarity and separation of the notes. It has plenty of volume and sounds best when pushed."  D.W., Bellingham, Washington

"Great tone motivates and inspires me, and my Walnut B&B just flat out kicks a**!  I'm going new places with my playing." 
T.D., Madison, Wisconsin

"Good bass, roaring mids and clarity in the highs with power! Everyone tells me my B&B sounds great! The right reso for the right person."  P.B., Paris, France

"My B&B Resophonic looks as great as it sounds. Dan Brooks builds a great reso. Anybody looking for a new, well made solid wood resophonic guitar with great sound should contact B&B Resophonics."  E.M., Olmstead Falls, Ohio



$1950.00 plus shipping

This price is for Curly Maple, Mahogany, Walnut or Indian Rosewood models. All models available with optional Sitka Spruce or Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top. Other woods and/or special finishes will affect price accordingly as will the addition of options shown below. Prices subject to change.

An $800.00 Non-Refundable Security Deposit is required to begin construction of a custom instrument. The amount of any Options will also be added to this Security Deposit.

Remaining amount due prior to delivery. Call/Email for current build times. LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY - Any damage due to construction defects will be repaired free-of-charge providing that no repairs or alterations have been made by the owner or any other repairperson, and if the damage has not been caused by lack of proper care (i.e. damage from low humidity, improper handling, neglect, etc.).

UPDATE ON CASES: Due to price increases I can no longer provide the TKL 8901 Pro Series Case with my resophonics. Unfortunately I would have to increase my prices to supply them. I will be shipping my guitars with a Guardian Deluxe Resophonic Case. The Guardian has a 5-ply shaped wooden shell with arched top, black leather-look exterior, black plush padded interior, accessory box, nickel plated hardware and leather covered handle. If the customer wants their guitar shipped in a different case, the cost of the case will be added to the total price and must be included with the Security Deposit. I will get whatever case they choose and charge only my cost.

An email list of current B & B Resophonic Guitar owners is available to serious buyers.

ACCEPTED PAYMENT METHODS: PayPal, Cashier's Check, Money Order or Wire Transfer.
