$2,250
sku: 26U-205256
A cool guitar based on a (Kay built) 30's National, this 12-string resonator guitar is a unique instrument with vintage style. It has a deep double bound 14-1/2" all mahogany body, mahogany neck, and bound ebony fretboard. A National Hot Plate cover plate / pickup unit has been installed. The action is a bit high, but not bad. We recommend tuning to D. Original hardshell case included. There are some funky finish spots (which look pretty cool). This instrument is in very good-plus condition.   More Details...
