With the Pioneer RP1, National Reso-Phonic has taken the classic, steel-bodied construction techniques of the early 1930s and used them to create a new style of electric guitar. This guitar combines a biscuit-style single cone with a pair of pickups: a magnetic Lollar P-90 and a piezo Highlander. The distinctive tones of these two pickups can be mixed via the on-board active electronics. The neck of the RP1 is made of maple and the fretboard is ebony. The steel body of this particular guitar is finished in Black Rust. Although this guitar is smaller than a standard National Reso-Phonic like the Triolian or the Style 0, it still puts out an impressive amount of acoustic volume. If you're looking for a guitar that is happy living in both the plugged-in and unplugged worlds, you owe it to yourself to give the RP1 a try. Comes with National hard case.
