This is the place to ask Michael Messer and other forum members questions relating to National, Dobro and other resophonic musical instruments. Also questions and comments relating to National, Dobro, Supro, Valco amplifiers. No commercial advertising. To ask Mark Makin questions about anything in the Palm Trees, Senoritas & Rocket Ships thread, start a new thread in National Avenue
Hi everybody, that National used to belong to a guy I know who organised a concert for me in Italy. It has been advertised for a quite a long time and nowadays a shop in Perugia is asking 3499 Euros for it. Any help you need (translating, questions, contacting the old seller) just let me know and I will be glad to help. Frank
David, 1500 Euros looks like a real bargain! Everytime I see a photo of a vintage National...I would like to strum it even for a few seconds to hear how it sounds! Unfortunately, where I'm from the few of them around have reached steep prices!
(I'm fine and healthy, thank you. I just hope I will be able to support myself again in not too long a time. In the meanwhile, after months of of playing at home, my calluses are VERY thick! ) Frank
