|Comments||Between 1931 and 1937, National produced guitars with the ‘Duco’ frosted effect. This process involves dissolving a crystalline substance in lacquer, which re-crystallizes when the lacquer cures. This is a very tricky process and no two results are identical. These finishes are performed for National by B-Fanatic Guitar Works. This 2007 National Style 0-14 Dueco Resophonic Guitar is in great shape. It’s been well kept and sounds like a National – loud, clear, warm yet with bite.|
