As much as I love this thing, I'm not playing much steel anymore and can't justify keeping it. It's one of the first Nationals with the string-through pickup, the early version with the coils above the strings. Someone once installed leg sockets, and the screw holes are visible on the bottom. The bridges have also been replaced with modern facsimilies; the originals had a tendency to warp under string tension, throwing off intonation, so I assume that's why they were replaced. Otherwise, there is no damage and no repairs. Electrically, everything is fine - the pickups are nice and warm and the controls all work. There are separate screw-on jacks for each neck. The steel comes with its original hard case, which is in very good condition.

Asking $SOLD! including Paypal and shipping within the US.
