Oh, and earlier it was this guy for a while. National NRP Steel
Played my D18 this morning and the Keb Mo in the evening.
Spent a while with the baritone-ish guitar this morning. I say "ish" because I don't tune it down as far as I did when I first got it it. In recent years I've tuned it to D standard with medium strings or C# standard with heavies, D'Addario EJ series strings.
Here's a wee sample:
Aria AC-80 practicing Lagrima and working on technical skill... every single day... to correct old bad habits !

Nice guitar; a few years ago Cosmo had a bunch of different brand resonators in their acoustic room and I picked up the National after playing a few of the others; right away my impression of the National was "this is how they should sound."
Got this Gretsch resonator less that 2 months ago and I'm playing it all the time. Most of my songs are barely one step up from a field hollar so the resonator works real good.
Action is a bit high but intonation is good so a I might just leave it because the bridge is tricky to set up; only thing I did was adjust relief and go from 12s to 11s. The guitar is loud enough with 11s.
This guitar humbles me when I play it. It sounds too good for my shitty playing
I have a fingerstyle blues DVD I am gonna have to get to sometime soon and see if I can’t make it sing a little sweeter.
My dad has the wooden Gretsch and it sounds pretty damn good. Did you get the metal one?
I got mine at the 12th Fret and they put the Messer 15-56 slide strings on it, which do sound great
Pic from Dec 9/19 day it arrived. As you can see the TR cover is off while I was messin with it.
Taken it to a couple of jams and about half my songs work fine with it; the guitar is loud and gets under your voice real good. I gotta learn Me And the Devil Blues .. lol
Since I'm trying to sell this S&P all mahogany guitar, I made a short clip of it this morning. Warts and all, in my guerrilla recording style.
The marvelously melodic, masterpiece Martin M-36...

Reconnected with slide in Open G on Alvarez AP66 and Seagull Performer to see If I would let one go.
Seagull sounds better... Will keep both anyway... The OO Alvarez to camp fire ?
I was playing this guy, both plugged in and unplugged, this afternoon. Being fully hollow qualifies it as acoustic, right
Said it before but got to play a gretsch elcectromatic (50's?) once when a kid. Perhaps is enhanced memory but cant think of a nicer guitar I've played, ever. Thing literally played itself, I was maybe 13 at the time. Ruined me for life.
If I could afford a Keb Mo I'd likely have one--what do you think of it?
