1934 National Duolian

$4,495
Don’t even ask. This 1934 National Duolian is so cool and so great that we can hardly stand it.

~1990 National Reselectric

$1,295
How wild are these things? National, in their infinite wisdom, came out with these sometime in the late 1980s; I’m guessing that this one is from the early 90s because the person who brought it in tells me that that’s when he bought it from us, as new, and I’ll be danged if I can figure out where they hide the serial numbers on these things. Regardless….. These are extremely cool instruments, the...
