Pre-Owned 2013 National Triolian 12 Fret Steel Body Walnut Sunburst
The thin-gauge steel body is highlighted by a formed back and traditional ribbed sieve-hole coverplate. This provides increased resonance over the traditional thicker steel bodies. Each body is hand painted in walnut-burst. The maple neck clears 12 frets to the body and features an ivoroid-bound rosewood fretboard. This is completed with inlaid mother-of-pearl position markers. Tuners are vintage-style engraved, open gear. This National Triolian sounds incredible... it is loud, punchy, and brash. And yet it is defined on single note runs and chordal figures. The signature sound of the early models of the 30's were made famous by Delta Blues players such as Blind Boy Fuller. These current models will blow the originals out of the water. If you are a Delta Blues piedmont style player, this is your instrument!
This Pre-Owned 2012 National Triolian 12 Fret Steel Body Walnut Sunburst Is in Excellent Condition. It has only one very small ding on the top. There is also a small chip where the slide came in contact with the body. We have attempted to capture these in the detailed photos below.
Includes Original Hardshell Case.
What we know...
In the world of Resonator guitars National's are head and shoulders above their competition. Time and Time again the National Resonator sound.. and loudness.. are marvled at by players.
Why it matters...
It is hard to duplicate the sound of a National. Between the tone, playability and signature Resonator sound there is a reason they have been around for years and years. From Blues, to Bluegrass, and slide guitar this National can do it all.
What to expect!
An instrument whose design was meant to keep up with mandolins and banjos before the time of amplification..added with some newer takes on the resonator make for a relative instrument in todays music with classic tone.
