Thanks Michael for allowing me space here to replace the old notecannons guest book.
Anyone making their way to this forum, who hasn’t linked in from www.notecannons.com should please post back at Michael Messer’s forums. This area is just for folk who have questions relating to our notecannons website and instruments made by the National-Dobro Company in particular.
I have just moved the website to a new host with far more space and bandwidth. We plan to update most of the pages with links to the instrument's sales brochures and patents applicable to the instruments.

Thanks! It's always good to meet new members of the forum.
Hey >>King Guitar >> No pedals.....National Glenwood electric guitar plugged into my trusty National Westwood amp. If I remember correctly we added some reverb and that was it. The track was recorded on analogue 2 inch tape, which definitely adds something to that overdriven guitar sound. That track was recorded in June 1996....phew ...ten years ago!
These days I play that song using my Dave King electric fitted with a lap steel pickup through my prototype 'Messer' Champ Amp and get pretty much the same tone. The Champ Amp has a bit more bite, which is cool on that song.
Hi, Post your questions on the "National Avenue" section of Michael Messers website. Pictures can help too. There are lots of knowledgable people about, however some may be recovering from their time at Bluesweek! ;D

Where do I send pictures of my 1943 National Chicago Spanish model guitar. I have an original ax in very good condition. It has a maple body with a spruce top and NO F holes. It has a original single hum-bucking pickup and the old style microphone connection on the body. Paul
Post your pictures here. If it's the same model as one I had, it's a cool guitar. The pickup looks like a humbucker but isn't. It's a strange pickup in that each pole-piece has it's own coil around it. The size of the coils prevent the 6 polepieces from being close enough together, in a straightline, for the guitar's string spacing - so the polepieces are in a staggered arrangement. Thus poles 1, 3 + 5 are in one line, and 2, 4 + 6 are in another line (if you get my drift ? !!!).
Stupid place to put the screw-on connector ! Just try and get a connector cable for it ! I couldn't find one and eventually sold mine. You selling yours ?
