This listing is for a Vintage 1930 National Style O Resonator Guitar. This National Style 0 was made in 1930. The serial number is S-1596. The guitar is a 12 fret model with straight F holes and double palm tree etched metal resonator body. The guitar is in quite good shape considering it's age but is in borderline neck reset territory and has fairly high action. The neck shows evidence of being reset before but unfortunately the neck angle is still not ideal and the action or string height is on the high side. Depending on your playing style you may love the guitar how it is with the high action or feel it needs a neck reset. Certainly if you are playing slide and more open tunings you can get by with higher action. The neck also has some visible bow in it which could be corrected during a neck reset, see pics. The guitar appears to be all original and has not been modified other than the marking on the fretboard from the previous neck reset, see pics. The guitar has a good sound and is still fun to play if you can fight through the higher action. The neck is a nice V profile neck and feels very comfortable. The guitar comes with the case pictures which is in poor condition and not original. The metal resonator body has some scratches and wear you'd expect on a 90 year old instrument but overall the guitar is in good shape and is an excellent candidate for a professional restoration. Please look at the pictures and message with questions. I am happy to ship internationally but will not falsify customs documents. Please feel free to message to confirm international shipping rates.
Thanks for looking,,
