I've decided to let one more go. This is a 1965 National New Yorker, one of the last generation before the model was discontinued in 1967. This version has two under-string pickups hidden under the black hand rest. When I got the steel, it was missing one pickup and the blend knob was re-wired into a conventional tone control. I managed to find an original replacement pickup (all parts are original 1960s Valco) and had the knob restored to its original function. You'd never know any of this unless you removed the pickups and saw modern wire in there. The steel sounds excellent, with strong output. Everything else - tuners, knobs, etc. - is original. The steel comes with its original hard case, which is in excellent condition.

$SOLD includes Paypal fees and shipping within the US.
