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 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.

National Estralita Deluxe Resonator

National Estralita Deluxe Resonator

The National Estralita Deluxe resonator guitar has been the most popular wood body National over the past decade, evolving from the Jazz-Blues model. It’s very full sounding with lots of volume, and playing it will really open it up. National biscuit cones have a ‘break in’ period of several hundred hours of playing; they start out sounding really good and quickly head towards sounding really great.
