Czech Republic-based Amistar introduce new resophonic guitar

Czech Republic-based Amistar introduced their latest edition, the Randy Kohrs metal resophonic guitar (AKA Resonator Guitar), this past weekend at NAMM. Kohrs was on hand the whole time to showcase his latest endorsement and according to the Nashville session musician and artist, it received quite a bit of attention.

Amistar Kohrs Model "I took it around to other booths that were showcasing their metal-body resonators and, among so many other incredible guitars, I'm happy to say I still found my Amistar to not only look the best, but to sound the best, too," says Randy.

The body, made of brass, has intricate designs etched into the top and bottom with a very vintage finish and his name even imprinted on the side. Kohrs immediately had a strap made by well-known Bobby Poff of Wyoming, another one of his endorsements, and the detail carved into it was done to match the engravings in the guitar, making it a one-of-a-kind, as well.

Randy Kohrs has long been known as one of the best session musicians in Nashville, having played on over 500 albums ranging from Dolly Parton and Jerry Reed to Dierks Bentley and Little Big Town.

However, his latest accomplishments have taken him from sideman status to the spotlight as his own recording studio and solo career as a progressive acoustic artist are skyrocketing. With a number one video on CMT Pure for his latest single, "Who's Goin' With Me," from his latest Rural Rhythm Records release, Old Photograph, and a Grammy nomination for singer/songwriter Jim Lauderdale's CD, The Bluegrass Diaries, on which Kohrs produced, engineered, mixed, sang harmony, and played in his own Slack Key Studio, his name will be seen much more in the near future.
