THE RESO-ROCKET - A COMPLETELY NEW DESIGN FROM NATIONAL
A brand new design yielding a THIRD type of National tone has just been developed by the fine folks at National. The Reso-Rocket is sonically a hybrid between the single cone and the tricone sounds! (60% single/40% tricone). It is a single cone guitar, but the tricone-like upper grilles and the more closed coverplate both change the way the air flows above and below the cone. It seems that the more open upper grilles contribute a lot to the tricone sound. Another GREAT feature of this guitar is the cutaway allowing access to all the highest frets. This instrument is VERY loud, and it has tremendous “cutting” power, making it a great axe for all kinds of music, even Django-style swing! There are three different versions—in steel with Polychrome finish, in nickel-plated Vintage Steel, and in shiny nickel-plated brass. Of course, custom engravings are possible, too. This instrument is not a reproduction of an existing vintage National, but it is something completely new and innovative!
