National Style Guitar

without comments

National Style GuitarThe first type of resonator guitar was built by John Dopyera.  He designed the unique configuration of resonator cones after steel guitar player George Beauchamp requested a steel guitar that could keep up with brass and red instruments.  The two formed the National String Instrument Corporation in 1927 and produced the first National style guitars.  They used three conical aluminum resonators connected by a T-shaped bar.  This supports the bridge.

Later, Dopyera left National and created Dobro Manufacturing, where he continued to create resonator guitars that used only a single resonator set in a bowl-shaped area and covered with a perforated metal plate.  These guitars were actually louder than the first National ones.  National was still in business, however, and they countered with their own guitar.  Dopyera later began legal action and eventually gained control of both companies, merging them into the National Dobro Corporation.  The term “National style guitar” has since come to mean an instrument that uses a non-inverted cone, as opposed to the Dobro guitars that use an inverted cone.

One popular example of a National style guitar is the National Style O, a chrome plated guitar with a brass body.  These types of guitars are still produced today and can be found for around $2,500.
