Discover the iconic sound that captivated the world when Mark Knopfler showcased the National Style O 14-Fret Steel Resonator Acoustic Guitar on the cover of Dire Straits' Brothers in Arms album. Now available at Acoustic Centre, your premier destination for musical instruments, this faithful reproduction of the vintage original delivers exceptional versatility and timeless beauty.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the brass body of the Style O is polished to a brilliant mirror-like shine, nickel plated, and adorned with etched scenes of enchanting Hawaiian palm trees. The figured hard rock maple neck, finished in a traditional sunburst, adds a touch of elegance to its striking appearance. The ebony fretboard, bound in ivoroid and embellished with mother-of-pearl dot inlays, offers a smooth and comfortable playing experience.

Versatility and playability are further enhanced by the 14-fret design, allowing easy access to higher notes. The two-way adjustable truss rod ensures optimal performance, while the vintage-style engraved tuners and ebony headstock veneer exude timeless charm. With its exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail, the National Style O 14-Fret Steel Resonator Acoustic Guitar is a true classic.

Complete with a National Deluxe Hardshell case for maximum protection, this instrument is ready to inspire your musical journey.

Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.
