Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself, my name's Geoff and among other guitars, I feel extremely lucky to play a lovely red Tennessee Rose G6119. I've been in love with this guitar since I was a kid, so you can imagine my surprise when for my 40th bday my wife took me on a 'mystery date' to a guitar shop where she'd coordinated in advance for them to setup one of their small practice rooms with a few nice amps and a selection of gorgeous Gibson's and Gretsch's. Came down to a fine ES335 and the guitar I chose... Yup, she's an amazing wife ;)
Anyhow, nice to meet you all!

Congrats on the wife and guitar. What made you choose the 6119 over the 335?

Thanks all and Freddie, I went with the Gretsch based purely in the feel and tone when playing. Simply prefered the weight, balance, reedier tone... Still love the 335, but it'll have to come later ;)

Greetings Geoff, what a great introduction. Funny how those early influences affect us for life.
Enjoy that beautiful T Rose and see you around here

Goodmorning! I have been a member of the Gretsch family now for 2 years. Though my entry is young(a G5120) my collection will grow. I have been a fan of Gretsch guitars since 1989 and didn't feel worthy enough to own one. When all the big 3 auto companies had troubles 3 years back I was let go from Chryslerand decided for my own sanity to finally purchase my very own Gretsch. I am now modifying it similar to a Brian Setter model with some Tim Armstrong accents. Any suggestions?
