National NRP Steel Tenor

Harkening back to the early days of National, the new NRP Steel Tenor guitar is a modern recreation of the classic. Its body and neck dimensions are the same as the guitar-shaped tenors that National was building in the 1930's, but thanks to National Resophonic's modern touches, the guitar plays so much better than the originals after which it's styled.

Brushed nickel plating over a steel body that measures 12-3/4" wide across the lower bout, full size cone with 4 string biscuit bridge. One-piece mahogany neck with 22 frets and a scale of 23". Ivoroid-bound unradiused ebony fingerboard with ivoroid position markers, 1-11/64" wide bone nut, and Gotoh planetary mini-tuners.

We have the guitar tuned GDAE (octave mandolin tuning), but it can easily accommodate standard tenor tuning, or any other stringing one might prefer.

With custom-fitted National hardshell case.
