Definitely a National wins over a gretsch, but the cost difference is considerable! I've never owned a Gretsch but I have played quite a few over the years in stores as I am always curious (and Republics and so on). I would definitely try before you buy if you can, I played two identical models side by side at one stage (I think it was a boxcar...) one was not good at all and the other was really, really nice. I played another recently which I liked so much I was mentally going through my collection deciding what to sell before I snapped out of it.
They can be great, but play first if you if you can.
