INFO Dobro

Dobro is a registered trademark of the Gibson Guitar Corporation and is used for a particular design of resonator guitar.  The name Dobro was originally coined by the Dopyera Brothers when they formed the Dobro Manufacturing Company.  After many years the name Dobro came to be applied to any resophonic guitar.  An interesting note about the name is that not only was in a contraction of Dopyera Brothers, but it also means “good” in their native “Slavic” language.  An early motto was ” Dobro means good in any language!”
