~ Any tricone and El Trovador single cone guitars can be ordered in Baritone version for $400 more.
ResoRockets and ResoLectrics are not available in the Baritone version. Tricone Cutaways can be ordered with Baritone neck.
~ 12 Strings are available on most guitars, at a $400 upcharge, 12 fret guitars only.
~ Koa upcharge $750.
~ NO upcharge for LEFTY guitars All Lefty instruments are true lefty; tricones are a mirror image of a righty tricone, position markers are on the top edge of the fingerboard on lefty guitars, just like rightys. NO CUTAWAYS ARE AVAILABLE IN LEFTY MODELS.
~ German Silver upgrade: $500. This can be done for any brass model, plain, etched or engraved.
    Note that German Silver upgrade for Hollow Squareneck Tricones is $1000 more.
~ Antique Brass Plating upcharge: $300, for brass bodies only.
~ Dueco "Vintage" grey-greenish frosted duco or "crackle" finish upcharge is $1300.
~ Add a Highlander pickup, installed at the National Factory:
    my price is $450 for the IP-1X for single cone guitar.
NOTE: These pickup installation prices are for build orders, on guitars not yet completed. Adding any pickup to an already completed instrument adds hourly shop rate of $100/hour (usually can be done in 2 hours). This is because the guitar needs to be taken apart, work done, then reassembled. The staff a National do a fantastic job with this; their work is highly recommended and will save you a lot of trouble in the long run if you want pickup installed.
~ Add National Slimline Pickup installed at National Factory: $280 on not yet completed guitars. See above for adding to completed instrument.
~ Add matching Hotplate: $400.
~ Add Strap Button installed at National Factory for $10 if added before completion, $35 for installation after the guitar is complete.
    All Nationals have an endpin/screw at the tailpiece, but need a strap button added if you want to play with a strap. Strap button is installed on the bottom side heel of the neck (the side towards the floor if standing in playing position).
~ PLEASE ASK ME about neck upgrades, headstock overlays, fingerboard inlays, or any other customizations for your guitar.
    National will do most of these things at a reasonable cost.

~ Upgrades and customizations are often combined for a lower cost. If National does not charge me, I will pass that savings along to you.

~ Painted finishes include: Black, Red, Sea Foam Green, Black Rust, Green-Grey Burst, Ivory, Aged Ivory, Galaxy Blue, Walnut Burst, Gold "Polychrome" & more...

Blue CollegianNote that my prices listed are the cash price, in US Dollars. Cash price includes check, cashier's check, money order, postal money order.

I am always happy to help you, and will work with you to make it happen. Any questions, please call or email anytime. Thanks!
