With its crystalline Dueco finish, steel body and aggressive bluesy tone, the National Duolian is one of the most iconic vintage resonator guitar models. Originally built between 1930 and the onset of WWII, the Duolian was favoured by many of the blues players of the day. It was the least expensive guitar made by National upon its introduction and its combination of big volume, robust build, and low price made them attractive to street musicians all over North America. Blind Boy Fuller is likely the most well known 14 fret Duolian player, and Brownie McGhee, Son House, and Blind Arvella Gray are also associated with this model.
1937 National Duolian V neck 14 fret model set up for finger picking and slide, low action on a straight neck, original cone, tail piece and biscuit, sounds like expected, wonderful, such a unique tone that will be heard, and ready to be played, original hard case.
