Another of National's later efforts, this guitar is a regular Gibson J-50 with proprietary neck, bridge, and pickguard. It offers further proof that a bolted guitar neck is not exactly a new idea. This one is adjustable and quite rigid in its attachment. Maybe it tries harder because it's ugly. (Hey, who said that?)
