The National Reso-Phonic NRP Steel Tricone features the classic visual styling of the vintage Tricones but with the deeper, darker voice that steel has. This guitar still boasts all the amazing sustain and rich choral tone the Tricones are famous for. The steel body and coverplate are plated and then hand rubbed, a technique that produces a durable finish with a slightly lived-in look.The NRP Steel Tricone features the same type of aluminum resonating cones and T-bridge as the original models. The mahogany neck features an unbound ebony fingerboard with dot inlays, while the traditional slotted headstock has “NATIONAL” stamped on it. If you’re seeking a Tricone with a bit more blues feel to it, the NRP Steel guitar has it in spades.
