National NRP Raw Brass Resophonic Guitar

National NRP Raw Brass Resophonic Guitar

New for 2020, the National NRP Raw Brass 12 Fret sports a new lightly ‘distressed’ finish and still delivers the warm, rich unmistakable National sound. Also available in a 14-fret model and Raw Steel finish.  The National NRP Raw Brass Resophonic guitar is built like other NRP models with steel bodies and single 9.5 inch resonator cone, but is visually distinct with its retro ‘Chickenfoot’ style cover plate and new finish. This finish can ‘work’ a bit better than the highly polished and reflective surface on the more expensive models, meaning that it won’t show smudges as easily.

Here we have a Waterloo WLSTR! Based on vintage Stella models, the WL STR adds an adjustable truss rod to the base WLS model. The L in the model name indicates that this is ladder braced, not X braced. The Waterloo WLSTR pairs a solid Spruce top with solid Cherry for the back and sides.  Mahogany is used for the body blocks and neck,  with Indian Rosewood for the 12-fret fingerboard and the head plate for the slotted peghead.

Taylor 362ce 12 String Guitar Shaded Edge Burst

Taylor 362ce 12 String Guitar Shaded Edge Burst

Traditionally, many players may have shied away from a 12 string guitar due to their large size but the Taylor 362ce 12 string now provides a beautiful compact alternative. The grand concert body used on the Taylor 362ce is one of most compact that Taylor produces. Its curvy waist and smaller lower bout really let this guitar sit in your lap comfortably and it reduces fatigue on your strumming arm.

Taylor 712ce 12 Fret Grand Concert Steel String Guitar

Taylor 712ce 12 Fret Grand Concert Steel String Guitar

Made in El Cajon California, the Taylor 712ce 12 fret is a beautifully compact and comfortable guitar packed with tone enhancing features. The Grand Concert body size is one of Taylor’s smaller body shapes which is very easy to handle but produces a lot of volume and tone for its size. The Taylor 712ce’s 12th fret neck joint shifts the bridge further down the lower bout of the guitar, enhancing midrange and a warmer played-in type of sound. The new V class bracing pattern designed by master luthier Andy Powers helps to boost the overall volume and sustain on this model.

Boucher HG54 M Heritage Goose Parlor 12 Fret Guitar

Boucher HG54 M Heritage Goose Parlor 12 Fret Guitar

Here is a lovely Boucher HG54 M Heritage Goose Parlor 12 Fret Guitar, built with a Torrefied Adirondack Spruce top and Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. Once a dominant guitar design, the Parlor style guitar’s popularity faded along with the banjo and the introduction of Jumbo or Dreadnought body sizes in the early 1930’s. Parlor guitars tend not to be particularly loud, but do offer even, rich tone. As more players become interested in solo finger styles, the Parlor design is becoming more attractive again and builders are offering high-quality takes, such as the Boucher HG54 M.

National NRP Triolian Metal Body Black Rust

The National NRP Triolian Black Rust is the 12-fret Maple neck version of the Mahogany-neck NRP Black Rust, which in turn is based on the 1930’s National Duolian. Using a standard single cone, metal body with unrolled F-holes, the 12-fret National NRP Triolian differs only from the NRP in the use of Maple for the neck,rather than Mahogany.
