Dobrato Resophonic Vibrato #KV953B

Brass Body Specs

The Brass Body build produces a beautiful full-bodied tone.  It has a reverberate voice, our signature rich tone with the B Bender / Vibrato tonal variations. In this unique build, the Dobrato faithfully retains its natural acoustic tone when amplified. The sounds you create are only limited by your imagination! All Dobratos are designed and hand-assembled by Kent Viles in Gunnison, Colorado.

Please call to order or ask questions about the Dobrato.
