1932 National Triolian

Serial #1323P. A completely original steel polychrome in quite lovely condition. Very little paint flake, mostly unworn original frets, almost no playwear. Neck reset and straightened by Marc Shoenberger in early 2009, tailpiece repaired at the same time. The guitar currently plays easily with action of 7/64ths across the strings and remarkably little buzz. Original cone and bridge results in a very warm tone with lots of overtone presence. This one isn't the loudest of its kind, but it's certainly among the sweetest we've encountered in recent years. Maple neck with very soft V carve and 1-7/8" nut. With original chipboard case
