National Reso-Phonic Custom Wood Tricone Prototype!


You're looking at a one off custom built wood bodied tricone built by NRP. This was the predecessor to the current M-1 Tricones. This was as complicated a custom build as they had ever done at NRP. Amazing attention to detail. Even the coverplate is made of wood, unlike the copies that follow. Tons of hand work on this guitar, which took months to build. Amazing fingerboard inlays on it ebony fingerboard. Gorgeous headstock inlays, wavery tuners. This guitar originally sold for $8,495 and it was years before NRP decided to pursue building another wood tricone. Probably the most unique custom build NRP had done. This guitar it unique, collectable, and sounds amazing.
