Shining like a silver dollar, this 2003 National Resophonic Style III in Nickel-plated Brass is worth every penny. Bedecked with "Lilly of the Valley" engraving of vines and flowers twining around the soundholes, bridge, and back and set up with a tricone resonator, this Style III is the cat's meow of resophonic guitars. Practically immaculate, this National Resophonic has a mirror reflective surface polished to a floss-your-teeth-in-it sheen, so be prepared to dazzle your audiences with both the brilliance of both your playing and your resonator.

The setup is perfect for the Blues player who wants to do both fingerpicking and slide--be it standard tuning, DADF#AD, or beyond, this National Resophonic has a rich and dynamic voice that's equally at home for quiet tunes or rousing rags. Here, the tricone resonator is the magic bullet, offering a more complex and nuanced tone by distributing the strings' vibrations to its three resonators before entering the body's sound chamber. Interested? There aren't many used National Resophonics on the market these days, let alone resos in such pristine condition and gorgeous engraving.

2003 National Reso-Phonic Style III -  Resonator Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Playing this guitar is like coming home. Tricones are undoubtedly my favorite kind of resonator for their extra complexity, and the Lilly of the Valley engraving is a gorgeous cherry on top of this sundae." - Paul Heumiller

"The epitome of steel guitars, this one is also one of the coolest looking. The tone cuts through with that instantly recognizable sound we associate with a good metal resophonic guitar. I love playing slide on this guitar, but it's set up to be played normally in standard tuning as well. The perfect combination.
"
- Al Petteway
