National ResoPhonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone, Weathered Steel, 2018

National ResoPhonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone, Weathered Steel, 2018

We’ve just taken delivery of a brand new, new model National Resophonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone in a new finish – Weathered Steel. The official model number is ‘T-14WS’, and it’s a slim, steel bodied, three cone resophonic guitar with a 14-fret neck. And at under eight pounds, it weighs less than many solid body electrics! The T-14 Cutaway Tricone is full-scale guitar, at 25.66 inches. This requires a bit more tension on the strings and the cones, which can result in increased volume.

SOLD!!! Ernie Ball Music Man Axis Solidbody Guitar, Trans Orange, 2006

The Ernie Ball Music Man Axis promises and delivers straight ahead rock performance, suited for both high octane playing and lower energy levels. It uses the familiar and reliable recipe of a figured maple top on basswood, with a hard maple neck and locking trem system. The controls couldn’t be much simpler for a two-humbucker guitar – one volume control and a pickup selector.

National Reso-Phonic Pioneer RP1 Chipped Ivory 2018

The neck is maple with ebony fingerboard, and the body is semi-hollow finished steel. The Lollar P-90 in the neck position provides a warm, fat tone and the piezo element in the bridge accurately reproduces the resonator tone. Active circuity rounds it out.

SOLD!!! National Style 0 Etched Silver Resophonic Guitar, 1930s

SOLD!!! National Style 0 Etched Silver Resophonic Guitar, 1930s

Today we’re looking at one of the seminal resophonic guitars, a National Style 0 in ‘Etched Silver’ finish dating to around 1930. The Resophonic design dates to 1927 as a successful effort in increasing volume. While tri-cone models were the first, the single cone Style 0 offered more volume and lower production costs, though the harmonic content is not as rich as the tri-cone. In general, single cone models provide a sharp attack and quick decay, somewhat like a banjo, while tri-cones deliver a smoother rise and more sustain.

SOLD! Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass White, 2014

SOLD!  Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass White, 2014

Built during 2014 and naturally in a gloss white finish this Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass was the first instrument produced in 1976 by the then-new Music Man company, part owned by Leo Fender. The Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass is a full scale length, 34 inch 4 string bass with an Ash body and bolt-on Maple neck; both Maple and Rosewood fingerboards, as with this example, are available. The StingRay features a single humbucking AlNiCo magnet pickup in the bridge position, and an active 3-band EQ running off a single 9-volt battery, accessible via a small door on the back. The short headstock is typical of the Music Man design – at least one tuner is shifted to the treble side to reduce the length of the head, and improve overall weight distribution and balance.
