|Comments||The Estralita Deluxe has been the most popular wood body National over the past decade, evolving from the Jazz-Blues model (see here ) . It’s very full sounding with lots of volume, and playing it will really open it up. National biscuit cones have a ‘break in’ period of several hundred hours of playing; they start out sounding really good and quickly head towards sounding really great.These are 12-fret neck guitars. The 12-fret geometry often locates the saddle more towards the center of the largest vibrating surface, which can enhance the fullness and bottom end response.|
