National Tricone Style 1 12-Fret Neck Black, 2000

Here’s an interesting piece: a National Tricone Style 1 with 12-fret neck, used by Colin Linden on various projects including Blackie and the Rodeo Kings! The National Tricone is based on the very first resophonic guitars invented in 1927 by George Beauchamp and built by luthier John Dopyera – with the spun cones and metal bodies made by Adolf Richenbacher.

Sold! National Dueco Silver 12 Fret Triolian Resophonic Guitar

Sold!   National Dueco Silver 12 Fret Triolian Resophonic Guitar

The National Dueco Silver 12 Fret Triolian Resophonic Guitar model is a re-creation of an almost lost art. The frosted finish effect found on some pre-WWII National guitars was the result of an additive to Duco finish, creating a random crystalline pattern. The effect was uncontrollable and no two finishes are the same.

National NRP Steel 14Fret Rubbed Nickel Finish

National NRP Steel 14Fret Rubbed Nickel Finish

The National NRP Steel 14Fret sports a new lightly ‘distressed’ nickel finish and still delivers the warm, rich unmistakable National sound. The National NRP Steel 14Fret is built like other models with steel bodies and single 9.5 inch resonator cone, but is visually distinct with its traditional ‘Sieve’ 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, as in not showing smudges as easily.
