National El Trovador Resonator Guitar
Designed in collaboration with Mike Dowling, this single cone guitar is patterned after the famous El Trovador produced from 1932-1933. Similar to its predecessor, our El Trovador guitar features a large, 4" deep body constructed of mahogany. The body is bound in multi-layer celluloid, with a matching purfling border around the coverplate. A wood soundwell houses the resonator. An ebony fretboard is mated to a solid mahogany neck, capped with a rosewood headstock overlay. The El Trovador's deep, unique voice has made it our most popular guitar in recent years.
