Separate names with a comma.
Don`t get me wrong: I treasured and loved many of my guitars since most of them have a personal story to them.
There is an emotional bond...
I was not aware that this model was originally made without built-in pickups.
I had the opportunity to play a vintage two pickup verythin model...
I can write down the music that`s in my head without physically hearing it or playing it on an instrument.
You can still compose after losing your...
First you have to aswer the question "Best guitar for what kind of music?"
When it comes to Gretsch:
There are many sweet vintage Gretsch guitars...
A very desireable guitar. Now it`s yours. Enjoy it.
Wild guitar. I love it!
To-die-for Gretsch Playboy. I really whish that I would have grabbed one when they were sold for around USD 800 some years ago. Stupid me.
Cool score. Most of the vintage examples I had the opportunity to check out were farting out at higher volumes and were too mellow at lower volumes.
The flat black looks too cool, and the missing f-holes contribute to that cool look.
I had several ones on my laps. Very big and un-ergonomic for my taste. The build- in effects are uncool to me. I would not like to own one.
When I was a kid in the seventies I used to build skateboards from rollersate-spares. Had a lot of fun.
Today I anxiously witness my 21-year old...
It is true. I have problems especially when using tapping-techniques with this kind of guitars. Because of the body thickness it never appears on...
I love amps like that. Great find. Congrats.
Congrats on your new acquisition, Sid.
Looking very much forward to hear from your first try.
Great playing. Thank you for sharing.
But the colour reminds me too much of that cruel 80ies neon coloured shredder axes to dig it.
What a wonderful sight. Love them all.
Try something cool: What about a Smoker mod?
I totally agree. Same with Les Pauls. It is impossible for me to play them standig upright. Only seated. The toggle is always in my way.
Great guitar for sure. But for me it is too close to a Les Paul Standard. Not Gretschy enough visually imho.
Actually when I was about six-years old. It was an African made (as I was told) acoustic that was owned by my godfather. A St. George pathfinder....
I have to hear it before I decide to like it.
If this guitar is playable, holding tuning and sounds good to you: Leave it as it is and enjoy it.
There is much to love about preFMI Gretsch guitars.
Sorry. I misspelled that...
