|Comments|| Just in – a National Reso-Phonic Wocket Wooden Rocket! This mahogany laminate version has all the features of the very popular National Reso-Rocket, but with the extra warmth and growl wood provides.
The ‘Wocket’ designation is limited to a very, very few instruments. Steve James refers to his orginal prototype as the ‘Wocket’, and the first few production models are marked as ‘Wocket’ on the label, but subsequent models won’t carry that name on the label.
|Serial Number||Varies as new; this is 18632, production number 006 and manufacturing date 03-13.|
|Pricing|| $3689 Canadian dollars with case, or $2905 US dollars, based on 1.27 exchange rate.
NOTE: Exchange rates change daily!
This instrument is a production item for National and we’ll be carrying it. However the one pictured above is now SOLD, and the next ones we get will likely not have the ‘Wocket’ designation on the label.
