National Guitar 1928 Tricone Round Neck Lefty One of a Kind!


From all I know, this is the only left handed tricone ever built by the original National factory. They never did make the dies to be able to have a standard lefty tricone with the flipped grill openings. This would have been a custom one off built for someone with either too much money or plenty of influence with someone at the factory. Or just an exercise in prototyping a possilbe left handed model of the tricone that was never built. Date of manufacture was roughly 8-1-1928. 3 piece german silver body, engraved flowers. Handrest is off the coverplate at the moment in the pic shown. Under full restoration right now, this is an awesome and historic piece. Truly Amazing custom lefty round neck tricone! More pics to follow.
