Description

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!

I an very lucky to say that this guitar is part of my own collection but I just had to share it with fellow guitar lovers. I couldn't believe my eyes and ears when I first held it. It is truly an historic guitar that will live on for many more years. Enjoy the sound clips and pictures.
 
I've never seen a vintage National in this condition. It's absolutely amazing and the tone is without compare.
