What We Think

What a powerful, articulate, mojo-laden, drool-inducing instrument! 

I just played it through a Swart Space Tone and holy cow. . .the whole showroom started singing along!

I like it best with the P-90 and transducer mixed 

What you get is a warm, exceptionally articulate tone that's equal parts Jr. style solid-body electric, 30s single-cone reso, and flat-top acoustic 

It can handle searing lead, chunky rhythm, dextrous piedmont picking, and of course, IT LOVES a slide ;) 



Manufacturer's Description from National

Our Resolectric has gone through a few changes in its 19 years of production.  The current model uses an audiophile-quality Highlander preamp to mix both the magnetic and piezoelectric pickups.  A Jason Lollar P-90 pickup sits in the neck position, and a Highlander piezo transducer is fitted under the saddle.  The output of each pickup is controlled by independent volume knobs, with a master volume knob to control the instrument's overall output level.  A 3-way toggle switch selects which pickups are active.  The solid mahogany body is capped with a figured maple top bound in ivoroid.  The figured maple neck clears 14 frets to the body, highlighted with a diamond inlaid, rosewood fretboard.
