Default National Tricone incoming...

This is one of my “Grail” instruments. I’ve been waiting quiet awhile for a second hand one to pop up in the right condition at the right price. It’s on layby at the moment (or on your side of the pond it may be Lay-away)
For some reason I can hear “Hard times killin’ Floor Blues” in my head every time I look at pics of this guitar.

Cheers, Scott.

Congrats on your new National!! I own 4 Nationals and my Tricone is the most versatile instrument of them all!

Congrats! I love my Tricone and like you, I waited a long time to find one I could afford. A Polychrome Steel popped up on Reverb for $1100 and I jumped on it. They pop up all the time but inexpensive ones go fast.
