This is one of the coolest, gig-ready that National makes! Based on the Duolin, the thin-gauge steel is period correct and features flat-cut f-holes, traditional sieve coverplate and a formed back. The body is finished with a multi-stage, hand textured finish. The mahogany neck has a fully adjustable truss rod. But it's the trademarked sound that makes this guitar so special. The sound is powerful and loud while still being deep and warm and the Lollar pick-up sounds great! w/National hard shell case.
