The National NRP B Tricone Black Rust Resophonic Guitar is a special guitar, blending the features of the NRP and the NRP B, which replicates the single-cone, painted body 1930 Duolian.
Built in San Luis Obispo California, the National NRP B Tricone has a wonderful, massive, deep and rich tone with lots of projection. These models carry a unique ‘Black Rust’ finish, reminiscent of the vintage ‘Duco’ frosted finish process. The body is steel, with the painted finish, and uses the Tricone T bridge and three 6 inch cones. The 12-fret neck is Mahogany, with a slotted peghead and ‘NATIONAL’ branded into the front; the full scale – 25.669 inches (652mm) fingerboard is unbound Ebony with Mother of Pearl position markers. Vintage style National tuners are installed.
