2013 National NRP-14 Brushed Steel

National Resophonic’s NRP-14 Brushed Steel features a nickel-plated steel body and 14 fret neck with slotted headstock. It’s a wonderfully brash and aggressive resonator with all kinds of character and plenty of power. Very much inspired by the 14 fret steel-bodied Duolians and Triolians of the 1930’s the NRP captures the tonal hallmarks that made those early resonators the iconic blues guitars that they have come to be known as today. Modern playability and serviceability is are nice fringe benefits!

Mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, dot inlays, and stamped headstock logo. 1-13/16” nut width, 2-5/16” string spread at the bridge, 25” scale.

The guitar is in excellent condition and has a fresh setup care of our shop. The action is set a touch higher on the treble side than a standard acoustic to allow for cleaner slide playing but doesn't make fingerstyle playing noticeably difficult.

With original hardshell case
