This 10th Anniversary Collection guitar from National Reso-Phonic displays meticulous craftsmanship and unique resonance. The excellent noise of this distinctively styled instrument comes from a single hand-spun aluminum resonator or speaker cone. The cone mechanically magnifies the vibration of the strings, making the Style O Deluxe one of the hottest, loudest guitars around.
Complementing the abundant noise of this guitar are the details of its design. The neck is made of flamed maple with a sunburst surface, and the strong peghead has an ebony overlay with a bound ivoroid border. Acoustic Guitar’s 10th Anniversary logo is crafted of red abalone and gold and white mother-of-pearl and inlaid into the peghead. White mother-of-pearl appears again in the cover for the adjustable truss rod and the diamond-shaped position markers inlaid in the ivoroid-bound fretboard. The Waverly tuners feature ivoroid buttons, and the heel cap is overlaid with ivoroid and ebony.
Completely a true masterpiece, the National Reso-Phonic Design O Deluxe is a gem in the Acoustic Guitar 10th Anniversary Collection. From the conventional Hawaiian scenes etched into its sheet brass, nickel-plated body to the strong noises of the single speaker cone, the Design O Deluxe is as unique as they come.
