The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

National NRP 14 Fret


Instrument Categories: ,

The new National NRP gives you an accurate brand new Duolian but with fully playable and adjustable action, a truss rod and a modern “spun” aluminum National Resophonic cone. Stamped into the headstock are the tiny letters NRP- just as on the original 1930s Duolian and Triolian guitars.

Steel body National Guitars are the loudest of the National Resophonic family of guitars. Brash, bright and clanky they are the epitome of the classic Delta Blues guitar. While not as sweet and complex sounding as the brass body guitars, the steel body guitars would easily have filled a room back in the old days where musicians eked out a living playing flop house bars…and been useful for self defense when things got out of hand!

Available in standard 12 fret and 14 fret neck versions these are amazing guitars!

Note:  It is a given that we will set-up any guitar we sell to suit the player and Resophonic guitars are particularly quirky to setup.

For new guitar setup it is best if you can provide as much information as possible about your playing style so we can make an informed decision on how to setup the guitar

  • fingerpicking vs flatpicking
  • your right hand picking attack and your pick gauge
  • preferred string brand and gauge
  • your estimation of your normal action height on your current guitars (low vs medium or high) and anything else that will help us to setup your guitar appropriately.
