National Koa Estralita Deluxe

 National Koa Estralita Deluxe

Here is another example of a National Estralita Deluxe featuring a great set of native Hawaiian Koa. With tightly flamed grain lines and rich orange coloring this is definitely a beautiful set of wood! This single cone biscuit style resophonic has lots of volume and midrange bark with a hard attack and quick decay. The Pearloid headstock overlay, body binding, mother of pearl diamond inlays and vintage National tuners round out the high end features on this guitar but don’t distract from Koa. Hold onto your hula skirts this is one is sure to please!

National Resonator Concert Maple Ukulele

A couple of times every year, we are lucky enough to get our hands on one of these beauties: the Resonator Concert Maple Ukulele from National Guitars. In the past, we have featured a few Custom versions with extra detailing and appointments. Today, we have the standard version available; same great sound and feel at an even better price. This instrument is a performer’s dream. Thanks to the 5 7/8″ spun resonator cone, the National Uke gives more volume and punch than any other Uke available. Most guitarists, myself included, get hand cramps just looking at a standard soprano Uke, but the National is built to a 15″ concert scale, making it far more comfortable to play. The Grover 4 B tuners are smooth and accurate, and like every instrument National builds, the quality and craftsmanship is top notch.

National Baritone Tricone 1.5 2006 (Consignment) SOLD

This total custom order Baritone 1.5 Tricone not only looks great but sounds huge. The baritone scale neck allows for much lower tunings and massive bass response. The treble side cone has been replaced with a Beard spun cone to provide a bit of extra treble presence and the Vine of Life inlay package looks absolutely stunning. This piece is in excellent overall shape with only a bit of minor fret wear!
