Black Rust B-Series NRP 12 Fret, 14 Fret

M1 Tricone National has outdone themselves with a gorgeous mahogany bodied tricone. A very exciting first: dark Mahogany gives the tricone sound a wonderful richness and weighs 3.3 lbs less than a metal bodied tricone.
M1 Baritone Tricone Available by custom order. I have one myself, it’s deep and giant sounding, what a beautiful voice. The low string notes remind me of an upright piano’s bass notes. It’s a phenominal instrument
M1 12-String Tricone
The Mahogany body and well and tricone make for an absolutely fantastic 12-String guitar! It was a knockout hit at the NAMM Show this year. Bob Brozman, Mike Dowling, Steve James, Ben Powell and myself were all nuts about this great, to-die-for 12-String marvel.
Yet another brand new model from National. This single cone guitar features thinner gauge steel body, formed back, flat f-holes, maple neck and ebony fingerboard, black palm tree stenciled on back, goldish painted body…another great reproduction of a 1930’s classic. Sound and feel is very similar to W-Series Triolian and NRP. What a cool guitar.

Deep and dark and warm and bright at the same time. I’m the first musician to have one myself, and I’m slap-happy nuts abut it.
