Woah!! Not going lie, I wanted to take this one home myself – it’s gorgeous! This is a stunning National concert Resonator in superb condition. National were the original builders of resonator ukes, following on form this successful resonator guitars and they’ve had a century to perfect things. For me they’re the Creme de la Creme of resonator ukes.
The Style 2s are built with a nickel-plated brass body, and featuring a gorgeous hand-engraved floral motif. It features a bound ebony fingerboard with pearl diamond inlays and this one seems to be unique in featuring a very cool pearloid faceplate. I’ve not seen that on one of these before.
It has a powerful warm tone with a lot of body and National growl. It is excellent condition with a mirror like finish with just the faintest of faint micro-scratches.
