Ever thought that a laminate guitar might be too "cheap" or catered to beginners for your guitar collection? Just wait until you hear this resonator guitar.
In today's episode, we're going to dive into a comparison between two stunning resonator guitars from my personal collection—both of which are from @nationalguitars .
The first contender is a gorgeous National Supro Collegian resonator guitar. This beauty sports a striking duco finish that immediately catches your eye. With a rosewood fingerboard and a mahogany neck, it has plenty of bark and bite that you'd expect from a top-notch resonator guitar. We'll explore its unique tonal qualities and discuss why this guitar is perfect for those who love that classic resonator sound.
Our second guitar is the elegant National Estralita Deluxe resonator guitar. This one has a deeper, more mellow tone that sets it apart from its competition. Although it's a laminate guitar, don't let that deter you from considering it as a viable option! We'll delve into the Estralita's distinctive character and find out what makes it a must-have in any resonator guitar enthusiast's collection.
Whether you're a seasoned resonator guitar player or just getting into the world of these unique instruments, this is a great starting point for hearing how certain resonators with specific features sound.
