National / Tricone Style 1 Squareneck / 1930 / Guitar For Sale

This 1930 National Tricone Style 1 Squareneck resonator guitar is a fantastic instrument that embodies the essence of the Hawaiian style. This iconic guitar is known for its striking design with three aluminum resonator cones in a stylishly shaped German Silver body. The combination of these cones and the unique T-shaped bridge design produces a lush and unmistakable tone, characterized by its warm reverberation and exceptional sustain. The Style 1 is the most sober edition of National's Tricones, which, unlike the richly engraved Style 2, 3 and 4, has an undecorated body. The rectangular neck and high nut make it clear how this National should be played; with a slide or bar in lap steel orientation. The Tricone was the result of a collaboration between designer John Dopyera and guitarist George Beauchamp, who wanted an instrument that was louder than existing wooden guitars. This National was built in 1930 and is in very good condition. The guitar shows playwear and a slightly faded finish that are to be expected given the age of the guitar, including a dent on the back of the body. Furthermore, the instrument is very clean and sounds and plays as you would expect from a real vintage National!

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
