Product Details


Colorful and emblematic of the immediate post-war era, this National New Yorker lap steel guitar not only looks impressive but also sounds very appealing.
The stepped wooden body and headstock feature alternating black and white plastic overlays for an eye-catching design.
The clear Lucite fingerboard is painted from the back and features carved white fretlines and position markings in various colors of Roman numerals.
The headstock is covered in black celluloid and features an enamelled national logo plate.
The volume control is located on the top of the treble side in front of the pickup, and the chicken head-shaped tone control located behind the bridge has three tone settings: "Bass," "Mellow," and "Brilliant."

Since the original microphone jack is a standard that is not currently widely used, we recommend that you consider changing to a phone jack (separate price quote is required).

Comes with a dedicated plug and a hard case that looks close to the original.
