Fleabay came through....M1 is sold, 1928 National Style 1 is still for sale...
----------------------
Price new around $3,100, MY PRICE NOW $1,875+ship (max of $100).

This square neck resonator guitar is in perfect condition and sounds as good as it looks. John Dopyera, the inventor of the resonator guitar, felt that tricones were the most perfect design: "Tricone music flows like water". The three cones provide a built-in chorus, reverb, and sustain.

This one was purchased new from Elderly in 2017. Shortly after I got it, I acquired a National Scheerhorn one-of-a-kind prototype tricone, and I haven't played the M1 much at all since then. I still love the sound and playability of the M1, but I can only play one at a time!

With its mahogany body and traditional aluminum resonating cones and T-bridge, the M-1 is truly extraordinary: it boasts the traditional styling and resonator sound of a classic metal Tricone, but with the beloved warmth and depth of tone that a wood-bodied guitar adds, and is much lighter than the metal body version. 

Featuring vintage Tricone styling, the M-1 is constructed of laminated mahogany, highlighted by a sturdy wood soundwell and a hand-painted steel coverplate. The mahogany neck is capped by an ivoroid-bound ebony fingerboard with dot inlays and a vintage-style slotted headstock. 
The mahogany provides its own, distinguished tone, combining the unmistakable sound of a Tricone with a rich, deep, full tone.

Includes gig bag and custom 3-D printed snap-in mount for Krivo Resonator pickup, available at www.krivopickups.com in Portland.

I'll throw in a set of D'Addario EXP42 long-life strings - I read an interview with Jerry Douglas where he said he switched to these after getting tired of those EJ42s going dead after a couple of hours....they work great on the M1...

12th Fret Music did a comparison of 5 squareneck Nationals, emphasizing bluegrass...here are the M1 samples:
http://www.12fret.com/2011/05/18/national-resophonic-the-hollowneck-report-part-2/
And their conclusion:

"Huge bass response: round, woody, fat tone. Good treble response but warmer than the metal body guitars."
