Mule Resophonic -Steel Single Cone Resonator Guitar

About Steel Bodied, single cone Mules
The steel single cone was the start of it all for Mule Resophonic. There is no right or wrong choice, each body material has it's own character, both visually and tonally. If you love a raw, biting and responsive tone, the steel may just be for you. The single cone works beautifully well with picks too.
If you're thinking about pickups, what can you realistically expect from the pickup sound? Well the only pickup Mule put in is the P90 they make. It's an actual electric guitar pickup - not something modified to fit on a resonator. It's awesome and gets you an electric tone that you can't get anywhere else. If that's what you're looking for do it. If you're looking solely for acoustic applications, use a clip on microphone or one on a stand, that works great too!

Torrefied necks?! What the heck is that! Well torrefaction is a process of drying wood in a special kiln to make it more like old wood.  It evaporates more moisture but also sap in the wood. The result is wood cells that is more crystalline. This improves tone but more importantly stability of the neck because it doesn't lose or accept moisture as easily as new wood does. As standard, Mule Resophonic Guitars now come with a quartersawn maple torrefied neck, with additional titanium reinforcement rods. 

"Sometimes I like to call these “resos for acoustic guitar players” The nut width is the standard 1 3/4”, not the typical wider 1.825 found on most resonators. You probably won’t play this guitar every song in your set, so keeping the nut width closer to what the other guitars are will make the switch more comfortable. The action is typically set to a standard 3/32 on the low end, and 5/64 on the high. It’s not “slide action”- the horror story of guitars with bad neck sets everywhere. Don’t “set your guitar up for slide” unless you are so far down that rabbit hole you know exactly what you need. Set it up for a normal action and lighten up on your slide finger when necessary. You will use it more and you will find more songs in your guitar." -Matt Eich
