Custom National Reso-Phonic Style O guitar for sale

HERE’s a chance to own a unique, one of-a-kind instrument from National Reso-Phonic Guitars.

One of Dave Arcari’s main touring guitars (now superceded in personal inventory by his own ‘signature’ model), this instrument is based on the company’s iconic Style O nickel-plated, bell-brass-bodied guitar with the following custom features:

  • M2 neck with custom diamond fretboard inlays and flat headstock with mother-of-pearl-overlay (standard Style Os have a slotted headstock)
  • Custom pickup blend system with a Highlander piezo (for acoustic sound) in the ‘biscuit’ and a Lollar Imperial humbucker in the neck position. On-board power means there is no need for an external pre-amp/power source or special cables  as with regular Highlander-equipped instruments.

Average cosmetic wear  – cracks on heel of neck have been professionally repaired by reknowned Glasgow luthier Jimmy Moon (Moon guitars).

Comes with a brand new National hardshell case.

Asking price is £1,950 – contact  studio (at) or call 07872 534114 for further info or to arrange viewing/tryout.
