Hi, Dubb. Photos of you and your guitars seem to suggest you prefer 12-fret National guitars over 14-fret models. I'm considering a new National and would love to know if you actually do prefer one over the other and why, please. I'm left-handed and play mostly in open G with a slide and bare fingers. I'm looking for the clangiest, brashest tone I can get from a single-cone guitar. What models would you recommend? Thanks so much--and I hope you'll make it back to Little Rock someday! -- Steve T.
Yeah I do like the 12 fret ones. I don't know why tho. Maybe because the sound is a little richer. Plus you can say an awful lot in 12 frets! :-). The guitars you are looking for I believe would be the NRP's. They are built similar to the old Duolians and Triolians. There's a whole bunch to choose from on the National site. National does make left handed guitars too. I'm a dealer for them and if I can help you get the guitar you want - just let me know. Be glad to help.
firstname.lastname@example.org I'd love to get back to Little Rock. If you know of a good venue in the area let me know OK? Hope this all helps you Steve. My best, Doug
Doug... how do I get hold of you ....We are cousins ...My dad was Allister MacLeod and we haven`t seen each other in about 68 years .....YEKS!!!..Long time Uncle Ballie and .Aunt Dorthy visited us on Moxham Drive in Sydney N.S. Granny and .Grampa MacLeod were alive then but most of the MacLeod family are passed now.. My Mom Harriet passed last year at 94 years. Allister passed In 1995.. I thought it would be nice to get in touch since there`s only about 4 original cousins (Brenda Boutilier(Annie`s girl) AnnMarie (my sister) George Lohnes( Aunt Bo`s Son ) and ME WARNA JEAN) alive...(Wayne Lohnes just passed last friday.) Would love to hear from U ... Take care and just discovered your music...Pretty dam good cous!!!! Love Warna JeanDOUG MACLEOD responded on 07/14/2014 Next question
