What We Think

This is one really cool ax to pick on. It has a really unique voice as an electric made by the resonating folks at National, and I love its tone for picking some old school blues tunes. This is one of those electrics that is so lively unplugged it is hard to tell where the sound is coming from as you turn it up through an amp! But it fills the room with full jangly bliss guaranteed! It plays very well with both a slide and fingers, and is great for pretty much everything except large string bends. I especially love the way the body sits on my hip while playing it sitting down. Overall this is one really cool hybrid sounding instrument, and I love its vibe both tonally and aesthetically. If you are looking for something to spice up your collection this one is a no-brainer!
