Proud Owner of a 1972 Gretsch "Super Chet" , 46 years old and still on the road with me. Best guitar I ever played.. I played them all Les Paul, Fender Strats, Telecasters, Richenbakers, Gibson and on and on....I have dropped it, fell over on the floor, etc. still in tune. I play 120 to 150 gigs a year, it is still by my side and maybe to the grave. Jim 75 and still kick'in"
