About This Listing

Up for sale is a 1993 German made Continental Tricone Resophonic Guitar.

These are very rare and hard to find, especially in the USA.  

These were the 1st production Tricone guitars since National stopped making them in 1941, and before National Resophonic started making them again in the early 1990's, making them historically siginificant in the resophonic/guitar/music world

Serial number 9301112 (Production date January 1993, 112th guitar made) signed by Hans O Graf.

Brass body, mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, nickel silver Stew Mac frets, 11.5 frets to the body (25.5” scale). Comes with a Silver Creek Hardshell case.

This particular guitar had to be largely rebuilt due to a damage caused by previous owner(s).

There is a new neckstick, props & posts, a new fingerboard and frets, bone nut and maple saddle as well as restorative wood work at the heel.

Custom hand made ebony truss rod cover.

The cones, t-bridge and tailpiece are original as are the Schaller tuning gears.  

There is a small gap at the heel that couldn’t be closed due to a dent in this area, but the joint and internal bracing is strong and stable and the guitar holds and plays in tune up and down the neck very well with a very beautiful and full tone. The original cones are in great shape and sound great. I can send a sound clip via message or email.

This is really a great guitar, has a great history, has a lot of character and plays and sounds great. though not perfect, this would be a great instrument for a fellow resophonic enthusiast, or a player who wants the Tricone sound for a lot less than $3000! Only selling for financial reasons, going to miss this guitar!

All sales final, for sale in CONUS only. Thanks for looking!
