Description: National Tricone Style M-3 Marino Resonator Guitars
Introduced in 1937, this plain nickel plated brass
body model has a square neck (Hawaiian). By 1942 the body is no long
nickel plated but is instead painted with a oak looking wood grain
finish. Discontinued by 1943. Almost all were made with square necks.
If you need to figure out the exact year of your National Tricone guitar, use the serial number. The M-3 serial number is stamped at the top of the peghead or on a metal serial number tag on the back of the peghead. See the National Serial Number Info web page for help determining the exact year.
