National Reso-Phonic El Trovador Single Cone Guitar


Instrument Categories: ,

Designed in collaboration with Mike Dowling, the National El Trovador is patterned after the famous National guitars produced from 1932-1933.

Similar to its venerable predecessor, the new National Reso-Phonic El Trovador guitar features a large, 14.5 inch wide, 4 inch deep body built of mahogany. The body is bound in multi-layer celluloid, with a matching purfling border around the coverplate. A wood soundwell houses the resonator.

The neck is mahogany with a bound ebony fingerboard and a long 25 21/32 inch scale length, and 1.75 inch wide nut. The headstock has a rosewood overlay and the National El Trovador decal.

The National El Trovador’s deep, unique voice has made it one of the most popular resophonic guitars in recent years.
