National Delphi c 2004

Delphi

Delphi (/'d?lfa?, 'd?lfi/; Greek: Δελφο? [ðel'fi]),[1] formerly also called Pytho (Πυθ?), is famous as the ancient sanctuary that grew rich as the seat of Pythia, the oracle who was consulted about important decisions throughout the ancient classical world. The ancient Greeks considered the centre of the world to be in Delphi, marked by the stone monument known as the omphalos (navel).

 

hmmmm

 

well make of that what you will

 

Im not sure why National chose the name but I can tell you this is one hell of a resonator

 

National Delphi Blue

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. This National Delphi could be just what you've been needing.

The Delphi has a steel body and features a stunning custom hand painted Metallic Blue Sunburst body and coverplate with rolled "F" holes. It's mahogany neck meets the body at the twelfth fret and includes rosewood fretboard, cross-grained ivory binding, dot markers, slotted headstock with  the traditional National "shield" logo decal and three-on-a plate tuners.

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.

 

This one is in excellent condition for its age - just a few scratchs here and there and has its original fitted hard shell case
