I've wanted a steel body single cone 12 fret National reso for many years. It would be a side thing for me - but it's something I've always wanted and I ain't getting no younger. I've tried three or four less expensive imported resos over the years and have always ended up returning them within a few days - they just don't sound like a National to me. I like the rawness of the steel National Delphi and the look of the painted/baked textured finishes over the polished steel or smooth painted models. I do like brass tricones too, but really want a steel single to learn slide on. I ran across a used 1994 Delphi this week which set me off - we had a guitar show this weekend, and a Delphi was the one thing I was looking for but no luck. The one I played in the store sounded great but was a color that I didn't care for. Luckily Delphis are about the cheapest National Resophonics out there and can be found. Does anyone here play a Delphi or other reso?
