Pre Owned 2014 National ResoLectric Revolver Black
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. With that in mind, we are proud to introduce the newest member of the National family; The National ResoLectric Revolver! Always an incredibly popular model from National since it's introduction, the National’s ResoLectric has gone through a few changes in its 19 years of production. The current model uses an audiophile-quality Highlander preamp to mix both the magnetic and piezoelectric pickups.
A hand wired Jason Lollar P-90 pickup sits in the neck position, and a Highlander piezo transducer is fitted under the saddle. From Jason Lollar's website regarding the P90 used in the guitar: "The P-90 everyone is talking about. Scatter wound pickup with de-gaussed Alnico 5 bar magnets. A fatter P-90 tone with smoother treble. Sounds like an old P-90 rather than a new pickup that still has some hard edges. Great for fat clean tone or harder driving rock with more grind." The output of each pickup is controlled by independent volume knobs, with a master volume knob to control the instruments overall output level. A 3-way toggle switch selects which pickups are active. The solid African Mahogany body is capped with an African Mahogany top bound in ivoroid. The Honduras Mahogany neck clears 14 frets to the body, highlighted with a diamond inlaid, ebony fretboard.
The difference in the Revolver? A stunning matte black finish on the top, back, and sides, matched with ebony tuner buttons, rather than the flamed, sunburst top. The standard issue Pearloid headstock overlay, and pickguard match the new matte black finish to a "T"! Gone is the Sea-foam green badge on the headstock, in it's place a stark, noirish, Black and Gold National badge to further set the Revolver apart from it's brother.
The Tone? Everything that you expect from the folks at National. The Lollar P90 in the neck has a fat, singing lead voice that is perfectly suited for slide players looking for the ultimate in classic Electric blues tones. 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.
