As I said, I sold a bunch of gear, so you have to buy new stuff - right?
I was playing a National Radiotone, that I like but found a bit "banjo-ey" (if that's a word) sounding. My local dealer offered me a fantasic deal on this National M-1 that I had been playing in the store every time I went in. Couldn't resist
The combination of wood and tri-cone makes for a warmer, more complex sound and I'm finding it's great to play finger style in regular tuning as well as open tuned slide.
(and even my wife likes the sound of this one)
