This presentation-grade instrument was created for the October 1998 King Biscuit Blues Festival, commemorating Sonny Boy Williamson, and was featured article in the Summer 2000 issue of Guitarmaker magazine.
National Reso-phonic president McGregor Gaines came up with the design and David Giulietti did the elaborate engraving. Giulietti is a master engraver who does most of National's engraving. His clients include Deering, Scheerhorn, Stewart-McDonald, First Quality, Paul Beard and Fender. "I put my heart into this job," he says, and he signed this one-of-a-kind piece of fine art with an engraved signature on the back.
With original hard case, this guitar is priced at $8500.
