Hiltbrad Solid Black Walnut and Ebony Acoustic Electric Tricone Resonator

I have for sale a solid black walnut (back sides top and cover plate) tricone roundneck resonator. The guitar was hand made by John Hiltbrand of Hiltbrand Guitars out of Cincinnati Ohio. The back sides , top , and cover plate are all solid black walnut. It comes with passive tricone style bridge pickup. The binding sound hole lattice (hand carved) , fret board and bridge cover are all ebony. The nut is 1 7/8" and there are 12 frets to the body. Lower bout is approx 14 1/2" and upper bout is about 10" . The body depth is 3 11/16". The cones and T-bridge are national . String spacing at the bridge is 7 / 16" 1st string action at the 12th fret is 5/16" and the 6th action at the 12th fret is 3/8". Comes with the tweed hard shell case pictured. I also will include the snark tuner in the pictures. Sounds like an acoustic that sustains forever with very slight resonator twang . Selling because I have to many guitars and really I don’t like 12 fret instruments. 14+ plus frets for me only. You can here the guitar here with a different bridge that got changed before it was finished and sold being played by famous slide guitarist Jerry Kosak here with a different bridge that John since changed to the current one for better tuning stability. for more pics or to buy with more protection ` see my reverb listing here asking 3500
