Here's a short demo of my 1931, W series National Triolian. This would have originally had a sunburst paint finish - but most of that has been worn away through many decades of hard playing.
Not a CBG - but hey!

I got a couple of sweet republic guitar
Check out a highway 61 short scale
And an old Johnson tricone with a f@ off dent in it
You'd love the steel minola parlour
But you have the real deal!
Will have to arrange a jam..

You'd be welcome to come and try it any time Bug. I have a few nice reso guitars - but this is the only National. Another of my faves is my Eric Sardinas signature Washburn - very nice wooden body sound.

I saw a brown one in dean st a couple of years back

I've had this one for some years Bug - purchased from someone in New Orleans via Ebay.... I think (but my memory is dim). The guy sent me a small piece of wood, with the guitar, that's supposed to have come from the shack where Muddy Waters grew up. I put it in my mojo bag ;-)
