Description

We’ve brought this bad boy back to life with a brand new neck from National Reso-Phonic, making this 1931 National Duolian the perfect combination of vintage and contemporary: plays like fresh butter, rings out like a veteran crooner. Steel body plus single cone resonator, 12 frets to the body, and the perfect amount of patina and play wear to look the part. Clean, clear trebles really bring a lot of color to the voice, and the bass and mids fill it out the rest of the way with a delightful warmth.

There’s nothing quite like a vintage National. There’s a mellowness to the voice, even while it’s still strong and proud.
