National M1 Tricone Resonator Guitar
Sold out, please call 02 9817 2173 for next shipment.
After years of research and development, we are proud to introduce our new wood-body M-1 Tricone. With its mahogany body and traditional aluminum resonating cones and T-bridge, the M-1 is truly extraordinary: It boasts the traditional styling and resonator sound of a classic metal Tricone, but with the beloved warmth and depth of tone that a wood-bodied guitar adds. Featuring vintage Tricone styling, the M-1 is constructed of laminated mahogany, highlighted by a sturdy wood soundwell and a hand-painted steel coverplate. The mahogany neck is capped by an ivoroid-bound ebony fingerboard with dot inlays and a vintage-style slotted headstock. A big plus is that the M-1 weighs some three pounds less than its metal-bodied counterpart, yet it gives up nothing in sound. The mahogany provides its own, distinguished tone, combining the unmistakable sound of a Tricone with a rich, deep, full tone.
