National NRP Cutaway
National is known for building a variety of instruments, ranging in price and decoration from simple wood bodied guitars, to fully engraved brass beauties.
The Tricone design was originated in the 1920's and was based on the same principle as the mica disc on a Victrola. The designers settle on a very thin, conical shaped aluminum resonator design, used in a set of three connected with a T-bar inside an all metal body.
Three were used due to the mellowed sound and increased sustain it produced, as opposed to using one large cone which was louder, but brighter in tone.
The bellowing and rich tone the Baritone exhibits is sure to inspire even the most blocked and burnt out players. The neck has slightly larger profile than the standard model and uses a heavier gauge set of strings, but still plays, feels, and responds like a National should.
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition with no wear or tear to mention.
