Comments: Very nice 12-fret resonator from National. Neck profile has just the right amount of girth for slide playing and chord work. Resonates beautifully with warm, bloomy projection. This one can hold its own against almost anything out there.
Pickups: K&K pickup
Comments: Pre-owned Model B National. These reso-phonic guitars are incredibly cool. Nice neck profile with easy playability. Acoustic projection sets it apart and makes it a versatile instrument. K&K pickup sounds awesome.

There's a graft repair to the back of the neck (detailed in photos) that's certainly unconventional, but it's stable and doesn't need to be addressed at all.

Virtually brand new National Reso Lectric. Never played. This guitar rocks. If you are looking for an addition to your guitar arsenal, this just might be it. There are a couple of what appear to be oil spots on the back. Might be from some potato chips I was eating. I ordered some cleaner to hopefully get them off. Hey, potato chip grease, no extra charge.
