This National 1033 Hawaiian was made in 1957 and it's quite possibly one of the cleanest vintage guitars we have ever seen. There are no nicks or dings in the finish, the metal resonator covers are scratch free and the red paint is bright and vibrant. The particular guitar was made in Chicago during the era when National was owned by Valco. It’s essentially an acoustic lap steel with a square neck and 22-inch scale. The fret positions are marked out in what National described as the “famous Visual Octaves.” This guitar includes its original chipboard case, which is just marginally less clean than the guitar.
