National Guitar 1935 National Duolian The Swamp King!


I've dubbed this amazing Duolian the SWAMP KING! It's been sitting on a wall in North Carolina for the last 45 years just as you see it with two strings on it. I bought it after only seeing a few fuzzy cell phone pics. I was amazed when it came in. That finish was added in stages over many years, the patina is fantastic. I gave a thought to stripping and refinishing it, then just fell in love with it. This is an E series Duo that started out as a chocolate Duco finish on it. I took it to NRP and Don Young wanted to buy it from me! Neck is very straight, neck just reset and setup by Marc Schoenberger, this thing sounds amazing! Truly a one of a kind Duo with many stories to tell! Dripping with MOJO!
