This is the new Console Model Hudson Resonator Guitar.
This has been 3 years in the making. The sound chamber Is my own design and I have finally perfected the sound that I believe will make any ear happy to hear.
The pickup works well with most any amp.
It also works great with the Fishman Loudbox amp if you want a lite amp that will do a very good job.
Call for price and options 704-986-6481 8AM - 9 PM EST




Here is what one of my customers has to say about the resonator console guitar.

Hello I finely got in my opinion myself a resphonic guitar.That has that sound it should. I have or now own just about every major brand resophonic guitar out there if you don't belive me call my insurance co.Anyway about 5 months ago I called jimmie Hudson about building me a console reso guitar.Anyway some of you might ask why a console. I have medical problems cant stand to play cant play sitting down cant bend over to play.Cant have a strap over shoulder with any pressure on it.Any way he said Will if you can wait a few months ill build you one.I am in the process of developing a new sound chamber for them. Well I got my new reso console on 12-30-16 And WOW what a sound this has great sustain great volume. This thing sounds better then anything I own.It has that Ozark-BlueRidge MT.Vibe. That SWAMPY DELTA BLUES JUKE JOINT ATTITUDE. And when you plug it into a amp OMG WHAT A SWEET SOUND YOU DONT NEED ANY EFFECTS THAT RESO SOUND IS THERE. AND its light weight and it stays put when playing it. I know there are going to be some NAYSAYERS who think you have to have high dollor name brand Reso for it to be any good. Well not so I own or have owned some of the best and this reso of jimmies blows them out of the water. That's my OPINION. Thanks Jimmie for a GREAT RESO CONSOLE YOU GUY'S CHECK IT OUT ITS A GREAT RESO,

The pickup is a in house pickup that attaches to the cone with the cone screw.
It is only available on the guitars I build and sell.

Thanks,
Jimmie

Forgot I will try to get a sound clip up in a few weeks I am behind building guitars and don't have the extra time to do the video for now.
Price is according to what you want on the guitar.

I'm always looking and thinking about different ideas for such instruments. Later on I'll get in touch about possibly building me a Single - 8 Console model non-pedal steel guitar. I like the wood shown here but would probably want it with a burgundy or dark red coating on top. George L pu is my preference, 10-1. Body could be half the size as the one shown here. C6th would be the tuning which could cover the Byrd, Helms and others sounds. The low C could be tuned up to a C# for even more options. I'll be following the "Hudson" progress, as I've been doing. No rush. Thanks.

I have a double 8 in stock that is a nice guitar. I also do build the single neck console as well.
