|Comments|| National Resophonic’s Estralita Deluxe is the most decorated of their wood-body range. Normally built with walnut, it’s also available as a special order with highly-figured Koa mahogany veneer. It has a shallower body than some other National models, and this tightens up the bass somewhat and gives it less – the technical term is ‘woof’ in the lowest registers, while adding clarity.
This 2005 National Estralita Deluxe Koa Resophonic Guitar is in great condition. There’s no significant marking or wear on the instrument, and the Koa is warmly beautiful. And of course, it sounds great.
