GUEST,truckerdave Anyone familiar with Johnson Resonator Guits (28) RE: Anyone familiar with Johnson Resonator Guits 20 Sep 01

Someone asked about the chrome holding up. I've had no problems on either the Johnson Tricone or the single cone. It tarnishes but no flakes so far. I've had both a couple years. No, the necks don't hold up. I've heard of several broke and had one that broke at the heel. It's too flimsy for a guitar of this weight. Look at the heel on a Dean or Regal steel body and it's a lot thicker. A Dean or Regal weighs 12 pounds!, about the same as a les paul. They've got to have a pretty robust neck. I wish i could make a link thingy(how you do 'dat?) but i put some stuff about steel bodies on my webpage.
