I used to wn and love a Style "O" Deluxe and it was, indeed, a magnificent instrument -sooo loud! but oh sooo heavy.

I traded it for a wood (laminate) bodied Estralita

I have a friend who is a pro blues/ragtime who played a steel body for a long time , I found it very shrill.

Haven't seen him fora while but seems he's playing a style "O" Deluxe like I used to have - maybe it's mine - who knows?

I also play Dobro which of course is a spider version (with a Beard cone) and the sound is great for square neck but not what I'd call a blues sound.

I have never owned a National tri-cone.
