National Estralita Deluxe 2017 model
The National Resophonic Estralita Deluxe is constructed of Mahogany back and sides and a figured maple laminate top, triple-bound with ivoroid/black/ivoroid bindings. One thing that sets National apart is their hand-spun, specialized alloy cones. The Estralita Deluxe captures that classic warm, woody tone of a wood bodied resonator.
The Mahogany neck features an ivoroid bound rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl diamond inlays and a white pearloid heel cap. The solid headstock is overlaid with ebony and has a pearloid National logo. The tuners are vintage-style, open gear.
What sets National resonators apart is their hand-spun specialized alloy cones.
"The Tone is in the Cone."
This Estralita Deluxe captures that classic warm, woody tone of a wood bodied resonator. If you love the sound of soulful blues with or without slide this guitar is calling your name.
Notes have a beautiful sustain and decay, and there is a poignancy to the notes that not even the more traditional "biscuit" bridge guitars have. Even flatpicked bluegrass tunes sound as if they being played on a traditional dobro, it's quite remarkable!!
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ no wear or tear to mention.
