Sold National Style "O" 14-fret resonator


Silver Supporting Member

Up for sale is a lightly-used National Style "O" 14-fret, round-neck resonator guitar, and I am the original owner. This one is about five years old and in excellent condition. It has some slight tarnishing from normal play wear, but nothing that can't be buffed out if desired. This one also includes the Reso-Phonic Hot-Plate cover and pickup assembly designed by Mike Dowling. Further details of the Hot-Plate can be found by clickin the following link:


The Hot-Plate is a $340-$400 upgrade that doesn't affect the original sound of the instrument while also offering the added bonus of amplifying the guitar through nearly any amp.

From the National Guitars website:

The iconic Style "O" 14 Fret model gained its popularity thanks to Mark Knopfler. Debuting on the cover of the Brothers in Arms album by Dire Straits, released on May 13th 1985. This brass bodied instrument is polished to a mirror-like shine, nickel plated, and finally etched with the distinctive Hawaiian palm tree design. The maple neck is finished in a traditional sunburst. An ivoroid bound ebony fretboard and vintage-style engraved tuners complete the look of this timeless classic.
