1935 National Electric Hawaiian

RESONATOR & STEEL
National’s Electric Hawaiian was the company’s first production steel guitar and featured a cast aluminum body with a slotted headstock, large under-mounted blade-style pickup, and a rosewood fingerboard with frets. The body is hollow, but the casting is quite thick and fairly heavy, which gives this steel a wonderful sustain and thick tone.

It’s in perfect working order and in quite fine condition. Original pickup and complete wiring assembly, original tuners, nut, and frets. The body paint is likely not original, but we’ve not seen enough of these to confirm this. The paint is quite old and properly applied.

From the estate of local blues legend, Mel Brown
