National Reso-Lectric Junior, 2010 SOLD

National Reso-Lectric Junior, 2010   SOLD

Here’s a used National Reso-Lectric Junior! The Resolectric was discontinued a couple of years ago to make way for the ResoTone, and this example is in great shape. If you need to have that National sound, but seriously amplified, this is the way to get there!

National Triolian Tricone 12-Fret 2011 (consignment) SOLD

National Triolian Tricone 12-Fret 2011  (consignment)  SOLD

Here’s a find – a National Triolian Tricone, 12-fret neck, from 2010 in excellent condition. The Triolian was historically always a 12-frret model, but National now makes it in 14-fret (and baritone!) models too.

This example from 2010 is in great shape with only a few small scuffs on an edge or two. A very good deal for an outstanding instrument!

National Style 3 Tricone Squareneck 1929 (Consignment)

Here’s an excellent-condition National Style 1 Tricone Squareneck from 1929. This is an early example of a production resophonic guitar – the first production took place in 1927. The resophonic instrument was invented in 1925 by John Dopyera at the request of George Beauchamp. Beauchamp was a promoter who found that as venues and audiences grew, so did volume levels and as amplification hadn’t been invented, many instruments were just not loud enough. The reso-phonic design is much louder.

National Triolian with Bakelite Neck 1929 (consignment) SOLD

National Triolian with Bakelite Neck 1929 (consignment) SOLD

Bakelite-neck nationals were made from about February 1929 to August 1930 for a production total of around 1800 instuments. They are rare, for a couple of reasons. First, they weren’t made for long because Bakelite turned out to be less stable than the designers hoped, even with a steel rod inserted on later models and the experiment was discontinued.
