the country blues



After my great success with R14 I decided to redesign all my Roots models. And now I can offer all the model to a very affordably price. Same very high craftsmanship and high quality of the wood, as always on the Sanden guitars.

The R28 are my answer to the resophonic guitar. I have built it around the very popular SRB size. The R28 is available with both square and round neck and with a spider bridge.

I only use Beard handmade cones to get the best sound.

I have also design the exterior to blend with the sound. The tasteful herringbone rosette and together with the tobacco sunburst, gives the guitar a cool look.
If you are into blues, country or any other root music this is a must.

If you want to protect you guitar, you now can buy a very beautiful hardshell case, specially design for my Roots guitar. The exterior is creme white with brown trimming to give it the vintage classy look. And why not add a Fishman rare earth pickup installed in the soundhole, for that fat slide sound, and the top it of with an open head to enhance the old style look.
