Instrument Categories: , ,

New from National Resophonic, the T14 N, 14 fret cutaway Tricone with Bright Nickel Finish! This model is based on the seminal T-1 Tricone design, dating back to the 1926 invention of the Resophic guitar by John Dopyera and George Beauchamp, addressing guitarist’s need for ever increasing volumes.

Now, the T14 adds a cutaway to assist modern players who need more access to the upper registers.

“We are thrilled to receive our first Cutaway T-14-N guitar! The newest version of the venerated Style 1 tricone offers a 14 fret neck fitted to a cutaway body; all done in a “historical” fashion which keeps to the spirit of the early 1930s era but with easy playability along the entire fretboard.  National’s workmanship is superb, and the T14’s tone is lush and harmonically complex. Notes sustain ‘all day’! This brass body, nickel plated gem is as good as it gets.” Grant MacNeill, Resophonic Specialist

Here’s what National has to say about the new T14 N:

“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.”
