Description

**This guitar was recorded for the Dream Guitars Vol. II CD!!

We have a special treasure here, This is a 1928 National Style 1 Tri-Cone, the real deal. This is an all out, full stop blues machine with legendary tone that all blues fans know and love. It is hard to find an old National in this kind of condition, usually there is rust or the steel is nicked and scratched to within an inch of its life. Not this one, it is in stunning condition. Playability is perfect, whether you are fretting or using a slide this thing plays like a dream.

I have been playing National guitars for a long time, I started out playing blues, so this guitar holds a very near and dear place in my heart. It is fantastic, everything a blues player dreams about.
 
I love playing this guitar, in fact it is featured on the Dream Guitars Vol. II CD. It has a nice round tone with none of the harsh bite that newer Nationals have. The condition of this guitar is really amazing and it's set up perfectly. You won't find one like this anywhere else.
