1928 national tri cone reso serial number 0 666 . YUP, 666 !!!!!!!!!
Ok .- heres the story , I got the empty national body on ebay a while ago ,
It’s a true 28 national , and is serial #0 666 I though “hummm” I gotta do something cool with this WITHOUT ALTERING THE ORIGINAL BODY .” so , I figured these plastic chrome skull Harley / rat rod tail light covers would look great in there and match the 666 theme . turns out they are a great fit and actually reso pretty good too.
I made the neck out of a 1x2 and a 2x2 , and it’s a thorough body . the thin fret board on-top is from a 1948 Gibson lap steel . scale is like 22 and a half .
EVERYTHING I HAVE DONE CAN BE UNDONE . and you will still have an original 1928 national tri-cone reso nickel plated silver . body .. un molested (except it looks like someone made a bit larger end pin hole (most likely for an end pin jack and pick up at one time . as many have done . ( it’s under belt buckle tailpiece now ) . I didn’t even clean this body .
This is a cool one of a kind , 3 string , cigar box guitar type , LAP player as is . but you could also restore it to original .
