    Does anyone know anything about National bass guitars. LesPaul body- i know nothing about them, value, quality, collectability.
  2. Never knew National made basses.

    Are you talking about OLD instruments?

    National was part of that whole incestous thing between Silvertone/Danelectro, Harmony, Kay, Supro, Airline, Montgomery Wards, CMI... etc...

    IIRC, many instruments were made at one factory with some sort of change and a different name slapped on. As you say Les Paul styled, that sounds like the single cutaway Danelectro.

    The first bass I ever played was a National. My friends borrowed it for me, so I could start learning to play bass for their band. All I really remember about it was that it was white, and you had to tug the neck back inline to keep it tuned every once in a while.
