...I'll throw in a set of D'Addario EXP42 long-life strings - I read an interview with Jerry Douglas where he said he switched to these after getting tired of those EJ42s going dead after a couple of hours....they work great on the M1...
If I could only get an M-1 moved from the wish list to the needs list...
For those who haven't heard one of these, the complexity of the tricone sound and warmth of the wood body is a great combination.
12th Fret Music did a comparison of 5 squareneck Nationals, emphasizing bluegrass...here are the M1 samples:
And their conclusion:
"Huge bass response: round, woody, fat tone. Good treble response but warmer than the metal body guitars."
I bought a used Gold Tone 8 string w/ Beard setup from 12th Fret and it sounds awesome. I don't know if they had anything to do with that, but they have my trust.
PRICE CUT, New price around $3,100, my price now $1,950+ship
2nd price cut...now $1,875
By the way.....this is the last price cut...now just waiting for the person who appreciates how great the M1 is..
Actually, playing it has changed my mind...I'm keeping it...decided I like it too much to sell it.
Will probably sell my 1928 Style 1 instead...I like that one a lot also, it sounds great, but have too many to keep them all...
Thank you for keeping it. My resistance was starting to wane, even though the instrument acquisition fund is disappointingly low at the moment, so I....hmm......1928 Style 1 did you say?.....hmm.....
Wayne- It's a beauty, sounds great, complete setup and new cones by Paul Beard (original cones included with sale). serial Num 597. 1928 was the year before John Dopyera left the company, so it has the master's touch on it...let me know if you are interested...sounds similar to M1, without the woody overtones and big low end, but with German Silver shimmering sustain...

I can testify that it is a great sounding guitar.
Yes, you can testify to that for sure! This must be one of the last things you sold before deciding never to sell anything again...well, you didn't sell it, you got my Beard R Model in trade, and that is one I regret letting go of...
Told ya so Steve!
Steve, your R model has become my favorite dobro and the one I take to jams.
If only lottery tickets were sold in Utah; I'm just a scratch-off away.
I'm glad to hear that the R Model is well loved, and that also means I can stop thinking about trying to trade something to you to get it back...enjoy!
Sorry, Steve, it is a keeper. :)
As much as I like this M1 (I had decided to keep it)...I just found one of those "I have to have it" instruments..so this is for sale again...at a discount...
I think we are all curious: what is the must have instrument?
It is top secret, the guy who made my Weissenborn is making it, and I'll show it when it happens....
M1 is sold, 1928 Style 3 still is for sale...
Here's the ad for the 1928 Style 3, it is on consignment locally, he will ship, if sold through seeing this post on ResoHangout let me know and I'll pay the commission...
