National is a constantly evolving company, who is always trying new ideas, reissuing classic models, and pushing the envelope as far as tone is concerned. The National ResoLectric has gone through a few changes in its 19 years of production. This 1999 Resolectric has a lot of the same quality appoitments as the current National ResoLectric, but features a few different appoitments such as a Seymour Duncan P-90, Deluxe Grover Tuners, and an Ivoroid Pickguard.
The tone of the Seymour Duncan P-90 "Soapbar" is similar to that of an old '52 gold top or a '59 ES-330. This Pickup uses hand-fabricated bobbins wire and "flatback" tape as well as Alnico II magnents giving this pickup a deep, rich, and smooth tone. The Piezo sounds like an acoustic national, only perfectly amplified. You have a myriad of tones at your fingertips, which makes it easy to switch between a preset rhythm and lead sounds. Don't worry, The ResoLectric will chase away that Hellhound on your Trail!
This National ResoLectric has assorted dings and scratches as expected from a 10+ year old guitar. The coverplate does have some oxidation and wear. We have made every effort to clean up the cover plate but in some cases the nickel plating has been removed. Original Hardshell Case Included.
