Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this instrument features a polished brass body that gleams with a mirror-like shine and is nickel-plated to perfection. The brass construction ensures a warm, resonant tone with rich harmonics that is characteristic of the classic National Tricone guitars.

The mahogany neck, finished in a rich mahogany burst, adds a touch of sophistication to the instrument's aesthetic. It is complemented by an ivoroid-bound ebony fingerboard, which provides a smooth and comfortable playing experience. The vintage-style tuning machines adorn the traditional slotted headstock, adorned with the iconic National Shield decal, adding to the guitar's vintage charm.

Whether you're a slide player or prefer open tunings, this instrument delivers outstanding sustain and volume, allowing your music to soar.

Each note you play resonates with clarity and depth, providing a truly immersive and inspiring playing experience. To ensure its protection and safe transport, this guitar comes with a National hard case, offering peace of mind wherever your musical journey takes you.
