On Stoneking's [website](http://cwstoneking.com/instruments/), he says, "The El Trovador is the first National Reso-Phonic guitar I purchased, it’s a reissue of a model that was only manufactured for about 1 year in 1933. This guitar has a cool old parlour guitar type shape and a deeper than usual mahogany body also a slightly narrower neck than the other National guitar models, sounds real good and loud."more
