Introduced in 1961 and produced thru 1963, the National "Studio
66" had an Art-Deco fiberglass body. The single cutaway
Res-O-Glas body was tinted in desert white. The single pick-up
has a shell-shaped pick-up cover and is controlled by single tone
and volume knobs. The pick-guard has a very dramatic
"Batwing-Shape" and is bolted directly to the body.
The painted neck is finished with a Rosewood fretboard, dot
inlays and Kluson tuners. It has a Rosewood bridge with thumb
wheel height adjustment and a trapeze tailpiece.
Today, these vintage National guitars are used by musicians like
Neil Young, David Lindley or more recently Jack White.
