Epiphone presents the new Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody guitar with an easy to play Round Neck. The M-14 guitar features the renowned style and sound of an American original that’s been dazzling and inspiring musicians since the late 1920s.
Designed to produce a brighter tone with a great deal of twang, thanks to the use of a metal cone as a resonator, and it sounds great. Often played with a bottleneck slide in open tunings these guitars are ideal for folky, blues styles of music or anything with a country influence.
Classic Resonator Body
The body of the Dobro Hound Dog M-14 is made from bell brass with nickel plating with a 14-1/8" lower bout width, a 10-3/8" upper bout width and a depth of 3-1/2". The tone of the Hound Dog M-14 is rich and full with quick decay that makes both fingerpicking and slide smooth and easy in all registers. The mahogany neck has a natural satin finish with an easy-to-fret 1960s SlimTaper neck that’s joined to the body at the 14th fret with neck-stick construction. The rosewood fingerboard has pearloid "dot" inlays with 19 medium frets, a 12" radius, and a bone nut.
Dual Action Trust Rod
The first generation of original Dobro instruments look great but often suffer from warped necks or poor intonation. The modern Dobro Hound Dog M-14 does away with all of those old problems thanks to a dual-action adjustable truss rod and bone nut which makes it easy to set up the Hound Dog M-14 to any style. The strings sit on a hard maple saddle with an ebony cap. The headstock has a rounded "Dobro" shape seen on rare (and expensive) vintage models. The Dobro Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody also has a vintage styled 4-color "Dobro" decal with the iconic harp logo.
Featuring a Bell Brass body with nickel plating, a Mahogany neck with a natural satin finish with an easy-to-fret 1960s SlimTaper™ profile that is joined to the body at the 14th fret with Neck-Stick Construction. The Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody also has Grover® mini-Rotomatic™ machine heads with an 18:1 ratio and comes ready to play with D'Addario EJ42 medium gauge strings.
