I'm new here and was hoping you could help me out with a question. I'm into short scale guitars and was interested to know whether there are any short scale Gretsch electrics around. I've found out about the Rambler (6115?) but was wondering whether there were any other Gretsch electric models with the 3/4 scale?
Thanks and Regards

The TW is 3/4 size.

There's currently a Mini Bo Diddley model available; I'm not sure of all the specs but it has a short scale. Check www.gretschguitars.com for the lowdown.

I had the mini Bo, great little guitar!

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about the TW... and had never seen the short scale Mini Diddley. To be honest I can't really go at a rectangular guitar... it just doesn't look right to me.
I guess I'm hoping to hear that Gretsch had put out a 3/4 Duo Jet or hollow body.

The rambler is about it, that I can think of, unless you consider the 3900 historic 3/4 it has a 15" body.

Juke, what pickups are the Bo and the mini Bo shipped with? Gretschbuckers?

The electromatic like Tartan Phantom's (use to be mine) is the regular size and that has G-buckers. The Mini has a mini humbucker. I really liked the sound from the mini. I use to have the mini, the regular size (Tartan's) and the acoustic. Then I start up grading and got rid of all my electromatic except the Corvette.
