    Default FS: 1930ís National Tenor Guitar - Resonator

    This is a National Tenor Guitar that is from the 1930’s. It can be tuned in “Chicago “ like a baritone ukulele, in fifths like a mandolin and in open tuning for people that want to use a slide.
    This guitar is a blues cannon. It comes with an original case that is solid though it looks like it went through the war.
    $1699 plus shipping obo

    Is this the original finish? Thank you.

    I don't think so. It might be but the finish looks newer. There are no dents. I've owned several resonator ukes including a John Morton, a Mya-Moe and a cheapie Chinese uke. The benefit of a tenor guitar is steel strings. They make a resonator cone sing much better than nylon.

    A little video with me playing (badly) in Baritone ukulele tuning (Chicago) .

    That was not played badly. I love the tone of that old guitar....

    Interesting sound. Do you know what the width at the nut is?

    This one is 1 1/4. Previously I owned a pear shaped National tenor that was 1 1/8. The difference is noticeable.
