❌SOLD❌  National Style 2-5 Tricone Squareneck Resophonic Guitar, Nickel, 1929

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.

For this 2017 Sorenson Companion custom banjo, the original order specified that the logo on the headstock read ‘Sorenson’ rather than ‘Companion’.    It also has a Maple block rim and wooden tone ring, so it is considerably lighter than many banjos at 9 pounds – that’s comparable to many Les Pauls and Stratocasters.
