Red Line Resophonics / Parlor Guitar / 2012 / Guitar For Sale
Red Line Resophonics is the Resophonic division of Cumberland Acoustic.
Our parent company, Cumberland Acoustic, has been in business since 1998, in a little town called Hendersonville, just north of Nashville, Tennessee. For almost ten years now we have been manufacturing and supplying instrument makers and Instrument Supply Catalogs with some of the finest mandolin parts, including bridges, pickguards, fretboards, and truss rods in the country. We expanded our line to include parts for Banjos, Mandolas, Archtop Guitars and Resophonic Guitars.
One day there was a small tornado that blew through our shop. When the wind finally died down and the dust settled we saw, to our surprise, in a previously empty corner , an almost fully assembled Resophonic Guitar!
And that’s how Red Line Resophonics was born. (That’s our story and we’re sticking to it.) (Unless we think of a better one.) Call us if you want the real story.
How We Build The Guitars
We start with lumber and hardware and build Resophonic Guitars to order. We also make some for stock, and we are making some mighty fine instruments.
We don’t use kits or parts from kits. We build all of the wooden parts ourselves.
We have a small, but very talented group of people who work hard to insure our customer’s satisfaction in everything they do.
This is Steve and Carol Smith, founders and owners of Cumberland Acoustic and Red Line Resophonics.

Steve wishes he could spend his days sleeping next to the fireplace.
