Pre-War Construction Resonators
 

Like the modern construction resonators, these pre-war resonators will fit most Bluegrass style banjos. As seen in the picture below, the sidewalls of this model are patterned after the three-ply construction found in resonators on many pre-way banjos. For those who pay attention to every detail, when you build a replica or rebuild an original, this should be your resonator of choice.
