Hot Rod Steel "RAT ROD" 12 String Tricone

$ 1695

Amazing 12 String Tricone put together here in our Southern California shop. We elongate the headstock of our Classic Tricone, redrill it for the 12 tuners, put a pearloid overlay on it (other overlays available) and top it off with the classic National tricone headstock shape from the 1920's and 30's. Mahogany neck, radiused fingerboard, 3 Continental hand spun cones, quality Grover style tuners work great. The internal pan is leveled perfectly. Each individual cone is placed on a pieice of glass and made perfectly flat. The pan and cones are then matched perfectly. No buzzes or rattles as is common on sub $1,000 tricones. 200 year old "OLD WOOD" Maple saddle custom made for each guitar. Frets leveled beautifully, fingerboard edges rolled for a played in feel. All this hand detail work done here in California. These sound and play amazing.
