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.
