Very beautiful guitar and looks like it is in fabulous shape. Square neck is a harder sell for me, though.

Glad you enjoyed the photos. I love vintage Nationals and play both round neck and square neck tricones myself. The Hawaiian guitars have been really popular in our inventory, I think it's because of the unique sound and of course the look

Smile Question

Am I right in thinking that the square neck is hollow?

If so, I bet that helps add to the haunting tone of these beautiful instruments

And a merry Christmas to everybody.

I'm sorry I did not see this question earlier. The neck actually has a wooden support inside to help maintain the shape under string tension.
