1997 National Resophonic Radio Tone


Maple-bodied single-cone resonator in honey burst. Bound top, big mahogany neck, unbound rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, very ’30s Art Deco vibe to headstock overlay and ornamentation, lovely color, powder-coated plate, bridge cover, and trapeze tailpiece. Ah, the good old days. We think these early second-generation  National Reso-phonics will be sought after. Why? Just listen. This guitar has a rich, complex tone that is very loud…who needs an amp? Willie’s was one of the first dealers of these, back when you sent the factory in sunny San Luis Obispo a deposit before they would make you one. We couldn’t get enough of these fine American resonators. One of the first 600 made, is pretty much like new, and comes in its deluxe original hard case.
