The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ National Model D Squareneck 2001


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Built from around 2001 to 2010, the National Model D squareneck resophonic guitar uses a wood body and single cone with a spider bridge. The body is built with Mahogany laminate for the top, and Walnut for the back, sides and 12-fret neck. Some models used laminate Spruce for the top, but this one is laminate Mahogany.

In 2010, the Model D was replaced by the wood-bodied Smith & Young Model 11. National discontinued the Smith & Young line around 2015.

This National Model D is dated to 2001 based on a comparison with other Model D’s with numerically close serial numbers and was built at the National shop in San Luis Obispo, California. It is in overall good condition with some minor wear to the finish, and the nickel plating on the resonator cover shows some tarnish, as happens with nickel. Naturally, there is no fretwear!

The original National arched top hard shell case is included.
