Our new NRP model captures the look and feel of an original 12 fret National Duolian. The thin-gauge steel body is highlighted by flat cut "f" holes, a formed back, and period-correct, traditional non-ribbed coverplate. Each body is hand painted to capture the look of the originals. Each mahogany neck clears 12 frets to the body and features an unbound ebony fretboard complete with mother-of-pearl position markers. Vintage-style plain tuners, ebony nut, and "National" stamped headstock complete the look of this classic.
