Pioneer

RP1

For nearly a century the National name has been synonymous with "steel guitar." Our new Pioneer RP-1 ensures that association will remain. Old-world craftsmanship meets modern design in our first steel, hollow-body electric. The National Reso-Phonic Pioneer combines an audiophile-quality bridge pickup with a vintage-style Lollar P-90 neck pickup. An on-board active circuit allows for a wide range of tones.  A slim neck profile and narrow string spacing complete this hybrid instrument. With the quality artistry expected in a National, the Pioneer is a unique update to the traditional steel-bodied guitar.
