A very rare instrument.
Sadly this instrument, pictured here 'as found' has been sprayed with gold paint
at some time in its life. It is currently being restored to its
The restoration is now complete,
we entrusted it to Mike Lewis of Fine Resophonic in Paris, France, who has done the instrument proud!
Pictures of the restoration can be found HERE.
This guitar is one of the finest sounding 12 string instruments that I have played.
I am surprised that National never produced more of these guitars. This is only one of two
that have turned up. ( A 12 string style 0 also exists) If anyone knows of others, please contact us.
