National Resophonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone, Weathered Steel

National Resophonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone, Weathered Steel

Here we have a National Resophonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone in a Weathered Steel finish. The official model number is ‘T-14WS’, and it’s a slim, steel bodied, three cone resophonic guitar with a 14-fret neck. And at under eight pounds, it weighs less than many solid body electrics! The T-14 Cutaway Tricone is full-scale guitar, at 25.66 inches. This requires a bit more tension on the strings and the cones, which can result in increased volume.

The neck is maple with ebony fingerboard, and the body is semi-hollow finished steel. The Lollar P-90 in the neck position provides a warm, fat tone and the piezo element in the bridge accurately reproduces the resonator tone. Active circuity rounds it out.

❌SOLD❌ Regal Dobro Resophonic Guitar, 1935

❌SOLD❌ Regal Dobro Resophonic Guitar, 1935

The Regal Dobro Resophonic Guitar Model 37, built in Chicago during 1935 has been functionally restored by Grant MacNeill. This guitar is now both fully playable and an interesting historical example of American musical instrument production. Regal had a long history, beginning in 1896 as a brand of the Emil Wulschner Music Company in Indianapolis, Indiana. Emil died in 1900 and the Regal name and manufacturing stock was sold to Lyon and Healy in 1904. By 1908, production was moved to Chicago, Illinois under the name of the Regal Musical Instrument Company.

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❌ National Style 0 Etched Silver Resophonic Guitar, 1930s

❌Sold❌ National Style 0 Etched Silver Resophonic Guitar, 1930s

Today we’re looking at one of the seminal resophonic guitars, a National Style 0 in ‘Etched Silver’ finish dating to around 1930. The Resophonic design dates to 1927 as a successful effort in increasing volume. While tri-cone models were the first, the single cone Style 0 offered more volume and lower production costs, though the harmonic content is not as rich as the tri-cone. In general, single cone models provide a sharp attack and quick decay, somewhat like a banjo, while tri-cones deliver a smoother rise and more sustain.
