❌SOLD❌  National Style O Nickel, 2021

Here is a National Style O in the stock Nickel Plate finish, nearly new and dated to February of 2021! This very shiny and reflective guitar is positioned facing a black backdrop to allow the etched designs to be seen clearly. The sides, reflecting the white background it’s resting on, give a better idea of its ‘natural’ finish tone.
