    National Resonator-Phonic Style O 12-Fret Acoustic Resonator Guitar

    The guitar is stunning to look at and to play. The tone is very rich with a surprising amount of sustain for a single cone. Very smooth and rich slide tone but with plenty of bite. Came with a set up that allows comfortable finger playing and slide as well. Very happy with the guitar, however I have never been in a position to own a quality guitar like this before so I can’t compare it with other National resonators.
