National ResoRocket N Brass Single Cone Guitar w/ Hot Plate Pickup
While the folks at National Reso-Phonic have a reputation for building reissues and replicas of classic National resonators of the 20's and 30's with painstaking detail and accuracy, the ResoRocket is a shining example of the progression and innovation that National is known for. The National ResoRocket is designed from the ground up; built with a focus on the faithful players needs.
The ResoRocket has a distinct tone unlike a typical single or tricone designs; drawing from both in a special way. The cone itself is a single standard 9.5 National with biscuit bridge. But, the top and coverplate is designed with tricone stylings. The upper bout has been modified for easier access to the higher frets.
The open upper grills lend to a dynamic sound, but with more of the single cone focus, projection, and volume. The ResoRocket has ample volume and an The resulting blend is unique and versatile, easily switching from open-tuning slide to western swing. Adding to the versatility, the ResoRocket is built with a graceful cutaway - finally allowing easy access to the upper register.
