National Resophonic Revolver Resolectric Guitar


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Built in San Luis Obispo California, the National  Resolectric Revolver blends the resophonic and solidbody electric guitar concepts, to great success.

Very similar in design to the ResoLectric, the National Resolectric Revolver uses a solid Mahogany body that’s routed for the resonator and electric pickups, and a bolt-on Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard. The headplate is a faux pearl covering.

For hardware, the National Resolectric Revolver centers around a single National cone with a Highlander piezo pickup with an active pre-amp. The neck pickup is a Lollar P-90, and ‘chicken head’ knobs on the upper bout control volume and tone. A traditional three-way switch selects the pickups. Tuners are vintage style Kluson models, and the tailpiece is a traditional National harp.

These are fantastic guitars for a number of styles – if you need an electric slide or the sense of a resonator guitar, the blend of the cone’s pickup and the thickness of the P-90 are unbeatable.

A high quality, arched top and back National case is included.

From National About The Resolectric Revolver Model:

“Our National Resolectric Revolverhas gone through a few changes in its 19 years of production.

The current model uses an audiophile-quality Highlander preamp to mix both the magnetic and piezoelectric pickups. A Jason Lollar P-90 pickup sits in the neck position, and a Highlander piezo transducer is fitted under the saddle.

The output of each pickup is controlled by independent volume knobs, with a master volume knob to control the instrument’s overall output level. A 3-way toggle switch selects which pickups are active. “
