    Description

    Peter Fonda's 1930 "Style O" National Resonator Guitar. This early National resonator guitar comes straight from Peter's personal collection. It is in strikingly clean condition for a guitar of this vintage, evidence of the care it received in the Fonda household. Produced in 1930, this guitar features a single-cone nickel plated body, maple neck, and diamond-patterned holes in the cone. The ebony fingerboard shows signs of wear typical to Nationals this age, but still plays very comfortably. A Hawaiian beach scene is etched into both the front and back of the body. This guitar is a valuable and rare artifact on its own, and the fact that it came out of Peter Fonda's personal collection makes it a striking centerpiece for any serious guitar collection. The serial number is S1767. A hardshell case (modern) is included.
