From the early 1930s until the rise of Rock ‘n Roll, steel guitars like this National Model 1008 Console 8 were very popular, and for novice players, often their first instrument. In fact, the very first production electric guitars were Electric Hawaiian steel models, and the first of those was almost certainly the 1932 Ro-Pat-In Steel. Ro-Pat-In quickly improved their name to ‘Rickenbacher’ and soon also introduced the very rare 1935 ‘Ken Roberts’ guitar, arguably the first production Electric Spanish style guitar. Rickenbacker at this time was also building metal parts for both National and DoBro.

❌ SOLD ❌ Strandberg Boden USA 8 String Guitar, 2012

Here we are looking at an early Strandberg Boden USA built 8 string guitar with a thin translucent blue stain finish. This instrument is apparently one of the earliest Strandberg Bodens built in the USA, and as such it has no serial number. The Strandberg Boden design is quite flexible and allows Strandberg to quickly configure a guitar for pretty much any number of strings. In this case, there are eight, in a ‘Hard Tail’ format.
