I bought this instrument in April 2020 from Elderly Instruments; it was my first resonator. That was back in the middle of the lockdown so I couldn’t try it or any other resonator instrument. Since then I discovered the dobro, and I will probably never go back to fretting a guitar again. So this National is up for sale.

The description below is copied from the Elderly Instrument page that advertised this National when I bought it. The page is still up (, and it shows the price I bought it for last year: $2,100. I put top-of-the-line Waverly tuners on it, as the originals were very hard to use. So I’m selling it for what I bought it for plus the price of the tuners: $2,400.

“A modern take on the classic Style O, this resonator guitar has a nickel-plated brass body with etched Hawaiian scenes on the top and back, as well as segmented and rolled f-holes on the top. The resonator system comprises a single cone with a biscuit bridge and a ribbed sieve coverplate. This one's got a lot of honk. It is in excellent condition.”
