Big Road Blues (inactive) Ever heard of a National Collegian guitar? (3) Ever heard of a National Collegian? 08 Mar 99

Hi MCers,

Does anyone know about a Nation guitar called a "Collegian"? I played a National in a guitar store recently and was told the instrument was a Collegian. I've never heard of this model before, and was wondering if anyone has. It is a sewwt-sounding 6-string resonator guitar, with a single cone, brass body painted yellow, solid headstock, 14 frets, and the neck was originally square but someone shaved the neck to make it rounded. The fellow in the shop said that it was made in 1940 or '41. Any info would be appreciated.
