National M-1 Tricone Cutaway (New)
The National M-1 Tricone, this one with a beautifully designed cutaway, is one of the absolute coolest guitar designs anywhere (in my humble opinion, of course)! The cutaway makes slide playing up the neck so much easier, without sacrificing the deep, rich and warm tone that this model is known for. Here is National's description of the M-1 Tricone:
After years of research and development, we are proud to introduce our new wood-body M-1 Tricone. With its mahogany body and traditional aluminum resonating cones and T-bridge, the M-1 is truly extraordinary: It boasts the traditional styling and resonator sound of a classic metal Tricone, but with the beloved warmth and depth of tone that a wood-bodied guitar adds. Featuring vintage Tricone styling, the M-1 is constructed of laminated mahogany, highlighted by a sturdy wood soundwell and a hand-painted steel coverplate. The mahogany neck is capped by an ivoroid-bound ebony fingerboard with dot inlays and a vintage-style slotted headstock. A big plus is that the M-1 weighs some three pounds less than its metal-bodied counterpart, yet it gives up nothing in sound. The mahogany provides its own, distinguished tone, combining the unmistakable sound of a Tricone with a rich, deep, full tone.
