MICHAEL MESSER MM RESONATOR GUITARS
IT HAD TO HAPPEN!

Michael has over thirty years experience of playing, collecting and reviewing National style resonator guitars.
He has been working with a small guitar workshop and UK importer to create what he now considers to be the most
authentic and playable National style resonator guitars at an affordable and realistic price.
The body dimensions, neck profile, headstock, spun aluminium cone and set-up will give the player the classic tone,
volume and feel of a 1930s National guitar.
