In the first two installments, I had focused on Russia almost exclusively, though I did mention Jolana guitars briefly.Since then, a lot of new information has come to light, enough to dedicate this third installment of "Guitars Of The Cold War" exclusively to guitars built in Czechoslovakia. The Czech Republic has a rich musical instrument building heritage.So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections.
Dopyera and his family emigrated from Slovakia in 1908 and settled in Los Angeles.As we will see, Jolana wasn't the only Czech guitar brand.There were others, including Resonet, Neoton, Lignatone and others.It was Ruzicka's decision to experiment with electric guitars, and by 1954 Ruzicka and the designer Vlcek produced the company's first electric instrument.
This was a Hawaiian-style lap steel guitar which had a slotted head with classical-style guitar tuners, and it was the first guitar to bear the Resonet brand.
In a quest for increased volume during the pre-electric era, Dopyera invented the resophonic (resonator) guitar.
