I traded Gibson sustain for Gretsch feedback
A race car driver told me once: You know when you're tearing around a country lane, NEARLY skidding off the curves, gunning it like hell to stay on the road? That's what driving a race car is like ALL THE TIME.
It dawned on me at a gig last night, that's what playing my Gretsch is like. I'm feathering that Master Volume knob ALL NIGHT LONG, just staying on the good side of that razor's edge of whistling. Wheeeee!!!!
