Steve James is an authorized National Guitar dealer. He says:
“Today, as when the company introduced the original resonator guitars in the late ’20s, National sets the standard for quality of construction and sound. As a long time player and product rep, I’m happy to supply information about the variety of models and custom options National offers. As an authorized dealr, I can order directly from the factory and offer a full 15% discount on the price of any guitar, ukulele or mandolin. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. Steve James
CURRENTLY IN STOCK:
New stock includes two wood-body Reso-Rockets, including one with a custom diamond inlay fingerboard at a specially discounted price.* Also just in, an RM-1 mandolin with vintage style steel parts and a solid mahogany body.
The new guitars reflect National’s absolutely consistent commitment to superior sound and construction, and I’m proud to have my name in them! The WB has been my principal working instrument since I took delivery on #1 and, if anything, they’ve gotten better since. You might want another resonator guitar…but you’ll never need one. I was happily surprised by the mahogany body mandolin (they’re ordinarily made with maple and walnut). Plenty punch in the mids and high end, as you’d expect from a National; also a strong, full lower register. This one’s got a good fast playing action, and careful wood selection and finishing make it pretty to look at as well.
Posted prices reflect a 15% dealer discount off list and include hard shell case and warranty
