    Default I have a guitar question for you guys

    In the new Coke commercial the guy is playing an acoustical guitar with a metal plate on the front. Is that just for looks or does it effect the sound of the guitar?

    It's a resonator guitar. They are family to the Dobro. The metal cone inside the body resonates, hence the name resonator. It acts as the amplifier for the guitar vs. a true acoustic, where the body acts as the amplifier. They have a metallic sound quality to them. Cinderella's "Bad Seamstress Blues" uses a resonator style guitar in the intro. There are countless other songs that have them as well, but that's the first that comes to mind. Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms album/cd has a picture of a metal bodied resonator guitar on the cover. Sometimes they were made with aluminum bodies and some were made with wood bodies.

    Hope this helps...

    Thank you. I have seen these before and didn't know and thought I would ask.
