Rickenbacker Electro D12 Doubleneck Steel Guitar Copper, 1953

Rickenbacker Electro D12 Doubleneck Steel Guitar Copper, 1953

The Rickenbacker Electro D12 is a rare model. Many of Rickenbacker’s multineck steels were 8-strings per neck, and the D12 has six; the doubleneck with a total of 12 strings gives it its name. Its better known sibling is the D16, with two necks of eight strings each. From their first production in 1940, the Electro D and T models used a combination of a cast metal body and a Bakelite neck, with Lucite fingerboards.

National Style 2-5 Tricone Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, Nickel, 1929

National Style 2-5 Tricone Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, Nickel, 1929

The National Style 2.5 Tricone Squareneck, or ‘Style Two and a Half’ is very close to the Style 2, with just a rose engraving on coverplate’s hand rest making the difference. Introduced in 1927, the Style 2 was the top of the National line, with a  brass body with nickel plating. The wooden components, such as the headstock, are Mahogany, except for the Ebony fingerboard. National Resophonic guitars were a radical, major innovation in musical instrument design.

Cole Clark Violap with Horseshoe Pickup Tasmanian Blackwood, 2003

Cole Clark Violap with Horseshoe Pickup Tasmanian Blackwood, 2003

The Cole Clark Violap is based on the classic Weissenborn steel guitar body shape, but built as a semi-hollow for amplified use without feedback. The concept is similar to the thinline Gibson ES-335 series, with a solid center block in an arched-top body. Cole Clark was founded in 2001 by Adam Cole and Bradley Clark in Melbourne Australia, and focuses on building quality instruments using sustainably harvested tone woods mostly native to Australia.

Republic Highway 61 Cutaway Resophonic Guitar

Republic Highway 61 Cutaway Resophonic Guitar

The Republic Highway 61 has a single cone resonator, 12 inch wide body – around the size of a Les Paul, and has a 25 inch scale length with 1 13/16 inch nut width. The body sports lattice soundholes like those on a Tricone model, so there’s lots of space for air to move. These sound good, and the smaller size makes them a lot of fun, and easy to play.

❌SOLD❌ Rickenbacker Electro Model NS Lap Steel, 1948

The Rickenbacker lap steel was possibly the very first successful electric guitar put into larger scale production, but Rickenbacker’s influence goes back to the early National days. Adolph Rickenbacker – then spelled Richenbacher – had a tool and die shop near National, and was contracted to produce metal bodies and resonator cones for National guitars, ukuleles and mandolins.
