Tricone

Tricone Advice Wanted

Anyone here have experience with Johnson, Recording King, or Republic Squareneck Tri Cones ( or any other affordable brands)? I've been toying with the idea of a metal body tri cone but don't want to shell out 2+ grand. I realize that the imports will likely have junk for hardware but it looks like the Republic have got some decent reviews here and there. Just wondering if anyone here has some first hand knowledge on these guitars. I'm thinking of D or maybe a 6 tuning (C6, G6, etc). Just thinking out loud here.

National Style Vintage Tricone Squareneck HOT ROD – NEW

This is a new instrument imported from „Vintage Nationals, California“. It has Continental cones in it, bridge inserts made of 80 years old maple and distressed body. I think most of you might know this company in Santa Barbara. They are selling those modified Tricone instruments regular.

It's a very nice playing and sounding instruments and probably the best Tricone squareneck under 1000 USD in the market. I bought this guitar for a planned project but unfortunately it couldn't be realized. Therefore I simply don't need that instrument.

Tricone tune - Moody Waters

Your browser is not able to display this multimedia content.

Tricone (Amistar Style 1 Square Neck). I did some adjustments in the setup, which is not unusual, to bring out the best of this instrument. I've written this tune 'Moody Waters' in the Jazzy Gm7 tuning. Hope you like it.

Hot Steel and Cool Ukulele

Erich Sylvester sings classic hapa haole songs featuring Hawaiian steel guitar jazz played by Ken Emerson, Sean Allen, Don McClellan, and Brad Bechtel. Songs are primarily in English with some Hawaiian words, and a few novelties with a sense of humor.

It was a fun gig and I'm happy that it's finally available to the world.
