Description

The National ResoRocket Steel Body is a modern version of the popular single cone resonator that offers a familiar 12 Fret neck but adds a cutaway for great access to the high registers. The all Steel body supplies enormous headroom and that can take you anywhere from sweet and smooth soul to dusty, gritty, gravely blues. It's Ebony Fingerboard and bone nut, Pearloid headstock and ivoroid bindings give it a classic, vintage vibe that pay tribute to its ancestry. There's nothing quite like a National for slide or fingerstyle blues!

*We offer an upgrade with the Hotplate pickup system on all National Single Cone Guitars. Just ask.

Being a longtime fan of resophonic guitars, I can tell when a good one comes through. The Steel Body National ResoRocket 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 for a much more comfortable piece. I love this thing!
 
A great guitar with a vintage tone that jumps right out of it. Fun to play and perfect for slide, with the cutaway allowing for extra room near the body.
