1964 National Bluegrass 35 Res-O-Glas Resophonic (consignment) SOLD

Comments Here is a rare 1964 National Bluegrass 35 Res-O-Glas Resophonic guitar! Built between 1964 and 1967, the National Bluegrass 35 shares many features with the Supro Resophonic FolkStar. This unusual guitar has been updated to make it completely usable on stage or studio. The original resonator plate has been replaced with a Hotplate so this is ready to be as loud as you need. A newer neck plate has been added for stability. As well, the fingerboard was professionally removed, an adjustable truss rod added, the fingerboard re-mounted, some refinishing took place, and the fingerboard was levelled and refretted. Consequently, it plays perfectly.
