National Reso-Phonic Wocket Wooden Rocket

National Reso-Phonic Wocket Wooden Rocket

Just in – a National Reso-Phonic Wocket Wooden Rocket! This mahogany laminate version has all the features of the very popular National Reso-Rocket, but with the extra warmth and growl wood provides.

The ‘Wocket’ designation is limited to a very, very few instruments. Steve James refers to his orginal prototype as the ‘Wocket’, and the first few production models are marked as ‘Wocket’ on the label, but subsequent models won’t carry that name on the label.

❌ SOLD ❌ Beard Odyssey Resonator

❌ SOLD ❌ Beard Odyssey Resonator

As a round neck instrument, the Beard Odyssey is a departure from Paul Beard’s usual construction style. The tuned oval soundhole and jumbo body shape give it significantly more bottom end and fullness than resonators usually have. The Beard ‘Solar’ coverplate is really attractive. This is an excellent instrument with a unique look.

National NRP 14 Fret

National NRP 14 Fret

The National NRP brings back memories – I owned one of the few original 1930s National Duolians that I have seen in my 40 odd years in this business that did NOT need a reset and had not history of amateur repairs…and foolishly sold it. The good part is that it went to a pro player who actually regularly gigs with it. I loved this guitar and have always been on the lookout for another. Unfortunately, most 1930s have severely overbowed necks, funky neck sets and played out original low-grade aluminum cones.

National Resophonic Guitars Baritone El Trovador

National Resophonic Guitars Baritone El Trovador

Grant special ordered this guitar for a customer, but we had so much fun with it we decided to feature it on our website and order another for the store. It is a stock El Trovador resonator guitar, but with an extended 27″ scale length. Strung up with 15-69 guage strings and set in standard baritone B to B tuning, I couldn’t believe the rich warm boom that came from the guitar with my first strum. The ring and articulation were classic National, but with a deeper drone and even longer sustain than usual (which is saying a lot!). We were a little sad to see this beauty go, but more are on the way. I just hope I don’t have to wait too long to play one again!
