1935 Dobro M32

I got this guitar from Charles Johnson at vintagemandolin.com.  It is a 1935 Dobro M32. It came to me completely covered in copper paint (the body, the neck, everything but the tailpiece and the fretboard). It has an all steel body and coverplate. The neck is an original Dobro, not Regal, California made slothead style with the original rosewood fretboard.  It has the original tailpiece, stamped-lugged cone, spider and tuners. The body was refinished in gold with a red burst, B•Fanatic Guitarworks’ frosted duco finish. The neck was refinished in an orginal Dobro style yellow to dark brown fade.
