National Resophonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone, Weathered Steel


Instrument Categories: , ,

We’ve just taken delivery of a brand new, new model National Resophonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone in a new finish – Weathered Steel. The official model number is ‘T-14WS’, and it’s a slim, steel bodied, three cone resophonic guitar with a 14-fret neck. And at under eight pounds, it weighs less than many solid body electrics!

The T-14 Cutaway Tricone is full-scale guitar, at 25.66 inches. This requires a bit more tension on the strings and the cones, which can result in increased volume. While this example, carrying a date of 3/18 (or March 2018) is not so equipped, a thinline pickup is available for mounting at the end of the fingerboard.

A hard-shell, arched top, National branded case is included.

Here is what National has to say about the new National Resophonic T-14 Cutaway Tricone:

“You say you want a revolution? When John Dopyera launched the first National Tricone back in 1927, he sparked a revolution in guitars by building in three resonators to provide internal acoustic amplification. Now, 91 years later in 2018, National unveils their first 14-fret cutaway Tricone, offering improved playability for modern guitarists but still boasting that famous resonator sound. The T-14 features a formed back and 3 – 1/2″ deep body producing similar body volume to its 12 Fret counterpart. A weathered finish evokes National’s long, well-traveled heritage. Capped by an unbound ebony fretboard, the maple neck provides a 25.65-inch-long scale length. The headstock is topped by an ebony overlay with vintage-style tuning machines. The T-14 might combine tradition with modern playability, but the sound is classic. Early National advertisements in 1927 touted the Tricone’s tone, power, and quality of sound, and the new T-14 proudly advances that history.”
