National Resophonic Style 1 Cutaway

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,



Comments The National Resophonic Style 1 Cutaway is based on the earliest, original National Resophonic design from 1927. That groundbreaking instrument provided a dramatic increase in volume to performing musicians in the days before the invention of electric amplification.The National Style 1 Cutaway tweaks this to improve access to the upper frets.Nationals have a really great sound, and it’s always a treat to play one. The cutaway gives good access to the upper frets, and with the 12-fret neck makes this a really nice guitar.

12-fret necks also tend to move the bridge to the center of the guitar body, resulting in a fuller, deeper tone and better response.
