2004 National Reso-Phonic ResoRocket $2,650.00
Vintage Steel Blues Machine with a BIG SOUND from the longtime leader of the resonator guitar world. Built in April of 2004, (the 28th ResoRocket ever manufactured), this tone monster features a cutaway starting at the 12th fret, allowing easy access to the highest register. From country pickin' to bottleneck blues, the ResoRocket is a LOUD guitar, a sonic hybrid between a single cone resonator, which is complimented by the distinctive Tricone-style grill work on the upper bout. It's all about how the air flows above & below the cone and the ResoRocket delivers increased openness, pronounced string definition and superior cutting power. This guitar will not be lost in the mix, whether you're playing down home blues or jazzy gypsy swing. With the passage of time providing a natural “reliced” patina to the steel finish, a Pearloid overlay on the headstock and heel cap, diamond-shaped mother of pearl fretboard markers on the rosewood fingerboard and sunburst finished maple neck, this beauty looks as great as it sounds. You know you've always wanted one, so here's an original at a killer price. National OHSC.
