National Reso-Phonic : Left Handed Resonator Guitars

National Reso-Phonic Guitars was founded in California, USA in 1989 by Don Young and McGregor Gaines.  They are a builder of resonator guitars, including other resonater instruments such as mandolins and ukuleles.

In 1990 the company opened a factory in San Luis Obispo, California which currently churns out over 1000 guitars per year.  They also offer a repair service which is capable of restoring almost any National guitar to its original condition.

National Reso-Phonic Left Handed Guitars

All National guitars are available to order left handed at no extra charge.  The exceptions are the Resolectric, Resotone and RA3 models.  Take a look at a very small sample of the guitars available from National below, but be sure to take a look at their website to view the full range.

National Website

The National website is quite basic in design, but I like the fact that it displays every guitar on a single page, making it very easy to quickly see what is available.  Each product page includes a series of beautiful high-resolution images of the guitar.

Information on left handed models is very well hidden on the site.  To find out if a guitar is available lefty you’ll need to click the ‘specs’ icon on the guitar’s individual page.  It would be nice to have this information a little more visible, or perhaps as an entry in a FAQ.
