    Welcome from Paris, and congratulations on that terrific guitar to start your Gretschmania.

    I sometimes wonder what an unweaned youngster like me do in that room...:D

    Beautiful guitar. I'm not typically a fan of gold hardware on guitars but on certain Gretsches it just looks right.

    Here's a welcome, Ray, from Canada. I'm 65 and have been visiting here for a bit more than a year. It wasn't long before I started to sense that many of the contributing members had many years of experience!

    Hi Ray I'm not 62 yet ok will be come Sept. Sounds like we had some of the same Guitars. Always had a love so an SG. Got my First Gretsch before Christmas. already thinking about my 2nd one. I was about 6 when I got my First Roy Rogers Guitar. I made a lot of noise on that thing.

    Again, many thanks to all of you for quite a warm welcome. It's also comforting to see there are so many members with a similar "vintage" as myself! HA!...

    I do not think this will be my LAST and only Gretsch. I sure am liking this Electromatic that's been here for just over a week. I'm still waiting for the Gretsch case. For now, I'm making due with a gator 335 case I had previously acquired.

    I was about 6 when I got my First Roy Rogers Guitar. I made a lot of noise on that thing.

    Phil66... I do remember those! My very first guitar was a LaStella classical. I let my sister borrow it at one point, and I found out years later that her ex-husband had put his foot through one night. (key word here is EX husband..) Ahh good times... Gooooood times...

    BTW: SGs is a a great guitar to have handy. Hits like a lot like a les paul sonically, but at half the weight. Great fret access too.
