    Default National Tenor Tri-cone Resonator Guitar

    NFI. Can't remember seeing another one of these in the wild. Don't know what it sounds like, but it looks like it would be fun to play.

    Pretty instrument, but the patent is "still pending".

    It's pending because it is the design for the projected Thunderbid 6.

    Brozman's book puts Ser.#305 as 1928, first year they were manufactured. Price is competitive, IMHO.

    Looks like a great deal on a National Style 2 tricone tenor.
