National Guitars 2009 Triolian Single Cone Resonator Sunburst (12 Fret)
The single cone 1930's National Triolian was one of the most ubiquitous guitars of the 1930s, the name being a holdover from an earlier model with three smaller cone resonators.
National Guitars, a re-imagining of the original company, which died after being merged with Dobro and Valco in 1969, has dedicated themselves to making cost effective but accurate replicas of their 30's counterpart, this modern (2009) Triolian Single Cone 12 Fret Resonator is no exception, with almost every detail being captured accurately, from the 9.5 inch hand-spun resonator cone and maple biscuit, to the Hand finished, Vintage Style Walnut Burst.
This guitar features a steel body with F holes, a slotted headstock on a maple neck, adorned with a rosewood fretboard with mother-of-pearl dot inlays, and National brand open tuners.
This guitar is in near original condition, with one or two paint chips missing from the edges.
