This one is rare !
Couldn't even find it in Gruhn's Guide !
from the catalog:
"Solid construction provides great sustained tone, and clear harmonics from this very attractive instrument. The 23" scale is clearly marked with the various positions, and the pickup has adjustable pole pieces and smooth acting volume and tone controls. Hand rest and pickup cover are in black crackle finish are in contrast with the body which is covered with a durable plastic material in white pearl finish."
A very good looking and playing lap, a quality build from National/Valco !
