1932 National Duolian Guitar
(Serial No. C5155) Blues approved! Excellent condition cosmetically, excellent condition soundwise. Has the original cool grey/green Duco crystal finish with only minor playing wear evident. Has the 12 fret body, original neck, slot peghead and the pre-1933 flat f-holes. The tuners are modern Stewart-Macdonald reproductions, which work fine; the rest of the hardware is original. The fretboard is in good condition. Its been refretted and the neck was reset at that time. I have not had the instrument apart but I was told by the seller that the cone is original. The front of the peghead is stamped National Duolian and the serial number stamp is on the end. No repairs noted. Strap button added at the heel. Neck is straight, neck set is excellent, and the guitar has the sound you are looking for in a metal body. It plays very nicely - it was just set up by luthier Jarry Ray here in town. Comes with a new hard shell case.
