I had called National Guitars to talk about them building a customized green tricone polychrome guitar (like this one) for me, only to find that they no longer made them in that color. The cost of the now special order color and other modifications I wanted almost doubled the price of the guitar and put it out of my price range.
I found this one on Ebay in perfect shape, then sent it back to National to have them install a flat fingerboard, ebony saddle and a pick up. This guitar is a magnificent beast! Playing it is a lot like playing a old theater organ; tremendous power, ring and sustain. I call it the Amish “Les Paul”.
Used on: Old Joe Clark, Bonaparte’s Retreat, Steel Guitar Rag, Tequila
