Description

Some of the finest old resonator guitars back in the first half of the 20th Century were Brass bodies that they coated in Nickel. The Brass gave the guitars significant heft, but that weight provided unparalleled sustain and tone. Then nickel provided the looks.

When the good people at National Resophonic began remaking these legends of old, they made it their goal to live up to and even surpass the heritage of their National name. And boy do these guitars do just that! They are doing such a good job that these days it's nearly impossible to get your hands on one. This ResoRocket N is a mirror-surfaced cannon, a slightly more modern design that's just begging to be let loose on an old Ragtime piece or some soulful Delta Blues. With a cutaway for improved access to the upper register, this guitar is ready for anything you throw it's way. Try it for Fingerstyle, Slide, or anything else you feel - it never disappoints.

Being a longtime fan of resophonic guitars, I can tell when a good one comes through. The Brass Body National ResoRocket N is an absolute canon of a guitar with a versatile tonal palate. The cutaway not only allows for better access to the upper frets, it also significantly lightens the instrument, making it much more comfortable for playing whether sitting or standing. I love this thing!
 
These guitars have that classic look and feel, but with a cutaway to make slide playing easier up near the body. The nickel finish is like a mirror.
