Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting...
A 1960 National Val-Trol Jr Guitar with the really COOL Original Hard Shell Case... I have had the two Pickup versions of the National Val-Trol, but this is the first Jr or single pickup I have ever found…VERY RARE....This one is in really good shape!
This 1960 beauty has hardly been lightly played over the years. The White, now Ivory, Plasticized Wood Body finish looks awesome and check out the White National Headstock...Beautiful....The guitar still has its original foil National date sticker on the back of the headstock. It identifies it as a 1960. They came out in late 1959 so this is one of the early ones!
This cool National Guitar is original from top to bottom. They used very high quality parts back then. It has the original double line Kluson Tuners with Butterfly Tuner Buttons, Valco made Single coil pickup with individual pole piece adjustments, original Piezo Pickup inside the bridge, pickguard, knobs, nut, and Pickguard...everything on this pristine guitar is original. I had Jeff the Tech go over it and set it up like all of them with low playing easy action. It’s a pleasure to play.
Besides the awesome sounding Valco Single coil Pickup, you also get the Bridge Piezo Pickup. An invention by Valco featured on many National Guitars. It sounds amazingly good with full bass on the tone setting like an acoustic guitar. With more treble they become a little thin but cool feature on this guitar. You get individual volume and tone settings for both pickups! I really like the combo of the two pickups together. Very unique sound!
It comes with the shown original Hard Shell case. The case has had some modifications, to say the least on the exterior but looks really cool. Original Handle and latches. Hinges are still with it as well. The Royal Blue interior looks great. Especially with the guitar in it!
This guitar is sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used. However, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for over 18 years now and they have all loved the guitars I found them. This cool National will certainly not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
