National Reso-Phonic Guitars
Mandolins currently built in San Luis Obispo, CA since 2005. The National Reso-Phonic Guitar trademark was introduced in 1988.
Founders Don Young and McGregor Gaines met in 1981. Both worked off-and-on at OMI (the former Dobro Co.) but left due to disagreements with management over production and quality. They established the National Reso-Phonic Guitar Co. in 1988 producing wood body single resonator guitars. In 1992, they made their first metal body reproduction of the Style "O" single cone that was soon followed by the Style "1" Tricone. They continue to make reproductions of older Nationals as well as innovations. In 2005, a resonator mandolin was introduced.
