GUEST,Tony 'Johnson' resonator guitars ~ ??? (41) RE: 'Johnson' resonator guitars ~ ??? 09 Sep 12


The Wikipedia article on Johnson guitars says:
Parent company AXL Corporation rebranded the guitars as Recording King, in 2007, paying $250,000 for naming rights for the classic guitar brand.

So is this thread now about Recording King resonator guitars? The thread started in 2005 with reference to Johnson metal-bodied resonator guitars. On the current Johnson site I see only wood-bodied resonator guitars (3 of them), but the Recording King site shows a bunch of metal bodies.

If it's not already confusing enough, there's the problem that some Recording King guitars made for Monkey Wards in the 1930's (nothing to do with Johnson or AXL or the current Recording King) are still around. Wikipedia says John Fahey played one.
