    Our price:4.250,00 2.995,00

    This National Tricone Style 1 is definately a cool sounding and looking guitar. Great for old bluegrass, slide guitar, Hawaian music and many more music styles. Resonators are great, niche instruments that were ahead of their time for a brief period in history.

    The resonator was the first version of guitar amplification. Before the electric guitar and amplifier were invented, the only other way to make the sound of a guitar louder was to make the instrument physically bigger. This fine instrument features a plain polished nickel-plated brass body with domed back and lattice soundholes, 12-fret mahogany neck, grained ivoroid bound ebony fingerboard with dot inlay, slotted peghead with National shield logo decal and vintage style tuners, three 6″ spun embossed cones with T-bar bridge and maple insert.

    Impossible to make good pictures with me or the environment reflecting in the higly polished nickelplated brass ūüôā¬†This 1998 National Resophonic Style 1 Tricone is in NEAR MINT¬†condition with just a few very, very minor signs of handling. There is almost no fret wear or wear on the back of the neck. Listen to the sound sample of a similar Tricone by Jake Wildwood¬†from Rochester (VT, USA).¬†Consignment sale, limited trades.
