We are delighted to share with you this extraordinary early 1927 National Style 1 Tri-Cone guitar. The condition is unlike anything we've ever seen, no dings, scratches, still shining like a new dime. The tone is awe-inspiring with the deep, mellowness that only age can instill. This is the Holy Grail of Tri-Cone Resonators. Serial #0327 from the first year of the Tri-Cone design, it also has the one peice neck with slanted top edge proving it's a very early one. Incredible history, condition and tone. Oh yeh, the original case is with it also!
