National Steel Guitar

without comments

National is the name that started it all—they were the first company to create resonator guitars.  These guitars, where were played like steel guitars, were like nothing ever seen before, and they quickly became popular.  The National steel guitar takes the classic Hawaiian instrument and puts it through a rigorous design and testing phase to create the best possible steel guitar.

A National steel guitar can be instantly identified by its metal body.  Under the hood are one or more resonators that actually create the sound.  The steel guitar is played horizontally across the lap, unlike traditional guitars.  Instead of using your fingers to change the pitch, a bar or slider is usually used.  The strings on a steel guitar are also raised up off the neck.

National makes a number of different types of steel guitars.  They have square neck guitars that are played on the lap, but they also make round neck guitars that can be played while standing.  One of their really nice looking steel guitars is the Triolian Tricone.  It features three resonators housed in a body made from thin-gauge steel.  The NRP Steel Deluxe is another great steel guitar by National.
