What We Think

This glorious, iconic instrument ain't afraid of nothing. It's got nerves of...well, STEEL! Seriously though, it's an articulate beast of a guitar. It's got that cavernous metallic reverb you'd expect coupled with a clarity and sweetness that's truly startling. You can take it from a dry whisper to a bark in a millisecond. You can comp and cut through a big band, you can folk it up and get the whole barn shaking, and of course, you can slip on a bottleneck and send a cold shiver down the spine of a dusty delta road. 

I love the tri-cone grill and unique cover-plate. It's a new look, but completely in keeping with tradition. The diamond inlay and Pearloid headstock give it that extra bling that sets it over the edge. You can flip it around to admire the beautifully bursted hard rock maple neck, too. 

The cutaway and slimline pickup ensure that you can truly take it wherever you want. Couple this with a nice 15" amp and you'll have range for days. 

Manufacturer's Description from National

Looking for some added glamor to your guitar? The ResoRocket N has all the best features of the Bendaway body combined with the shine of a highly polished nickel finish. The guitar is highlighted by the thoroughly modern coverplate pattern, setting off the distinctive Tricone-style grill work on the soundports. The hard-rock maple neck is capped by an ivoroid-bound Ebony fingerboard with diamond-shaped inlays and a distinctive pearloid overlay on the solid headstock. The modified body at the 17th fret allows you easy access to the high notes, making this this one of the most versatile and handsome single-cone National guitars ever.
