National Raw Steel 12 Fret Resophonic Guitar

The National Raw Steel 12 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, as in not showing smudges as easily.

National Tricone Style 1 12 Fret Resophonic Nickel Brass Guitar, 2001

National Tricone Style 1 12 Fret Resophonic Nickel Brass Guitar, 2001

The National Tricone Style 1 is based on the seminal National String Instrument Corporation guitars built from 1927 to 1943. National’s first design was for a three-cone amplification system, and the prototypes used a round cover for the three cones but by the time production began, a triangular cover plate was developed. An interesting aside is that many of the early components were made for National by Adolph Rickenbacker, who had a nearby metal shop and an interest in musical instruments.
