More American musicians ought to know about Amistar, one of the best European manufacturers of resophonic guitars - these great instruments stand toe to toe with the better-known domestic manufacturers that blues and ragtime players love. This Amistar Style 0 Resophonic, from around 2005 or so, immediately bolstered our round-neck selection the minute it made its way through the door. With similar construction techniques and an approach to sound as famed American manufacturer National, Amistar shoot for a resonator with a classic, Depression-era sound but with a little more brightness and clarity, making it versatile enough to play any type of music you like.

This guitar shows a below typical amount of playing wear for one over ten years old, with minor amounts of scuffing and cloudiness in the finish consistent with most used resonators. The set up is very good and capably supports common alternate tunings, making it a great, no-fuss instrument for players of all types. We consider it to be in very good condition. Included in the price is the original hard-shell case.
