2000s Dobro Squareneck Resonator Guitar

This confusing Dobro-branded instrument appears to be an import Dobro from the early 2000s or even a little sooner than that. It's marked "2nd" on the back of the headstock and has a serial number on a sticker below it though I'm unsure whether it's a useful serial number or not. I'm guessing that the "2nd" relates to the extra set of holes surrounding the coverplate on the top.

A consignor dropped this by and it was in perfectly good order and ready to go -- it just needed tuning-up before hanging it in the shop. The body is ply maple throughout and it has a rosewood fretboard and bone nut. The cone is a classic, spider-bridge Dobro-style one and it sounds good -- nice and full with that Dobro "burr" to the sound. It likes heavier gauges and that's what's on this. I have it tuned-up to standard "bluegrass G" (GBDGBD low to high) and it's punchy, for sure.

The headstock has Tacoma-branded tuners that look like they were fit to it new which is somewhat intriguing, and aside from the extra holes around the coverplate on the top it's basically unplayed and in near-new condition.
