This guitar is in good condition, with some cosmetic signs of wear and play. There are a handful of nicks and chips on the headstock, however this does not impact the structural integrity or playability of the guitar whatsoever. This guitar plays excellently, and produces a beautiful tone. 

Of note on this guitar is that the truss rod adjustment point is stripped, and cannot be moved with any conventional tool. Our local guitar tech and luthier Kenny McNally managed to successfully adjust the truss rod using an improvised specialist tool. He found that the truss rod moves perfectly when being adjusted this way. This shouldn't affect the playability of the guitar a great deal, due to it being typically a slide guitar. This is of special note in the event that you would wish to put much thicker or lighter strings on the guitar, as the neck may move and it will require special attention in order to be adjusted again.

The National Delphi features steel body construction with a ribbed sieve-hole coverplate, just like the pre-war original resonator guitars. In the 20's and 30's thousands of musicians discovered the punch and power of the original Nationals. The Delphi captures the classic sound and style of the originals, with the quality and features that modern players require.

The tone is a more refined version of it's thin gauge steel brothers, with a ringing tone and plenty of lush overtones. Jump jazz chords sound right at home on the Delphi, while still retaining that famous steel bite that Nationals are famous for.
