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.

National Cones

Hi There

 

I've been looking at a topic elsewhere on why NRP's spider cones are not really used or even known about much in the Dobro community.  I thought it was interesting so I thought I'd ask the question.  Why are they so rare here?  Is it down to the quality/sound, or just because they are made by a company more associated with biscuit resonators.  I know Don studied with JP Quaterman so he most definitelly knows what he's doing (and his new Dobro's sound great).  What gives, is it really just down to the partisan attitude between resonator communities?

 

Best Regards

Ben
