Just recently have fallen in love with the sound of National Guitars...those are the big, high end, metal behemoth guitars.

Problem is that there don't seem to be many good options for buying online, except for a few small custom houses. I question their reliability and craftsmanship, particularly with a sight-unseen purchase.

If you are a guitarist or a music affiliate, do you know ANYWHERE that I can get a National Guitar or National - style guitar and not have to worry about getting ripped off or getting a bad quality product? Note that I'm going to be playing it with my fingers and not setting it up for slide. I'm also not looking for a dobro...thanks!
