The first steel body single cone National Resophonic Triolian dates back to 1929 and was offered in two finishes — more common walnut and the coveted polychrome yellow. This is a 2010 reissue sporting the polychrome yellow finish, complete with the traditional sunset scene painted on the back, custom 1 3/4 nut, round neck, 12 frets, with a maple fretboard, flat-cut F holes, thin-gauge steel body and non-ribbed coverplate. If you’re a fan of Keb Mo, you’ll hear a 2010 righty example of this guitar on many of his recordings. This guitar is in very nice condition and has the original National hardshell case. A very fun guitar to play.
