National Raw Brass Resophonic Guitar

National Raw Brass Resophonic Guitar

New for 2020, the National 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 Raw Brass Resophonic guitar is built like other 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.
