National Style 2.5 Tricone Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, Nickel, 1930

National Style 2.5 Tricone Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, Nickel, 1930

The National Style 2.5 Tricone Squareneck, or ‘Style Two and a Half’ is very close to the Style 2, with just a rose engraving on coverplate’s hand rest making the difference. Introduced in 1927, the Style 2 was the top of the National line, with a  brass body with nickel plating. The wooden components, such as the headstock, are Mahogany, except for the Ebony fingerboard. National Resophonic guitars were a radical, major innovation in musical instrument design.
