he venerable 12 fret National Style 0 – today’s version. The Style 0 has been making music and other noises by some of the most iconic musicians the world has seen and heard through the last 80+ years. And it’s still going strong. The modern Style 0, built in southern California by National Resophonic, marries everything that was amazing about the original Style 0s with everything that’s better.

The body is cleanly put together of pressed thin-gauge brass, nickel-plated, and then etched with that famous Hawaiian scene. The cone is spun thinner than ever before adding more resonance, volume, and warmth; and the frets are located accurately and seated perfectly in an ebony fingerboard, ensuring tuning accuracy. Add an adjustable truss-rod, high-quality vintage-style tuners, a removable palm-rest for easier action adjustment, and some of the best fit and finish in the guitar making industry, and you’ll quickly discover why new Nationals like this one are keeping the prices of vintage Nationals down.

The 12 fret style 0 is among the most famous National models, and was the tool of choice of Son House among many others.
