Johnson JR-550 Bottle Slide Triolian Resonator Guitar. This wood-body resonator guitar is perfect for backyard bottle slide playing. With its slotted headstock and natural mahogany finish, it has the classic look and feel of the vintage Triolian guitars from the 1930’s, without the marked up price! The larger body shape adds much to its traditional look and exceptional sound. Built with a mahogany top, back, sides, and neck and a hard maple biscuit bridge, this triolian really sings.

The 9.5” hand-spun spiral Continental cone resonator provides this triolian with incredible projection and responsive tone. The JR-550 also features a rosewood fretboard and a 12th fret neck joint, as well as a modified F-hole soundboard. Add to that inlaid M.O.P position markers, a nickelplated coverplate and tailpiece, and you’ve got a new triolian that leads in tone, features, and value.

The Bottle Slide Triolian is also available with a Fishman pickup option. The pickup reproduces an accurate resophonic tone and provides unprecedented resistance to feedback.

  • Mahogany Top, Back, Sides, & Neck (Matte finish)
  • Hard Maple Biscuit Bridge
  • 9.5” Hand Spun Continental Cone
  • Rosewood Fretboard
