Re: NRP: one of a kind (reply)
Indeed :-) I've swapped the medium for light and I found it suits the guitar perfectly for fingerstyle. Trebles really sing, and you get a great tone altogether. The 12 is just a bit thin for slide playing, but you can get away with...

Well Michael, in order to even things out, it might be possible that the top of my NRP with flat cut f-holes found its way on a vintage steel body... :-) When I asked Jason if it would make any difference tonewise, he said yes but it...

Youtube is blocked at work. I will have to watch it at home. That's funny as I was thinking of one day ordering a vintage steel version but with FLAT cut f-holes instead of the ROLLED! LOL

NRP: one of a kind (topic)
I know there're a few NRP fans out there, and here's an 'odd' one for sure:  Here is the story : This guitar came up on Ebay a few weeks ago, and given I had meant to buy a steel bodied instrument I couldn't pass it up.  But something...

Re: Anyone try a national hotplate through a tube amp? (reply)
Here is my Resolectric with the Bill Lawrence pickup. I have the amp way down low so that the acoustic sound of the Nat'l comes through. I'm using D'Addario J-21 set with medium plains, tuned down to C-Vastapol This is my arrangement of...

Actually it looks better in the picture :-) It has a satin finish (which I like, but I prefer the 'natural' version), shows a few dents here and there (it's been played a lot and carried around) but I really don't care: Most of all it's...

Here's a picture of my 1998 Bendaway. I bought it used a few months ago and I couldn't be happier: It has a warm, woody tone. It can be sweet or bites and barks as soon as you start digging in. It's great for fingerstyle, but also takes...

Re: National Reso-Phonic - Show Us Yours and Discuss! (reply)
If I were to go on the road [unlikely at all these days, let alone on a Nat'l...] I'd absolutely get a new National - they're excellent imho. I don't need a new one tho'.   Variation 6, 14-fret, '34 Style O does fine for me.
