    Hello all!

    I'm Yann, I'm the happy owner of a G6119TR. To be frank I chose that one because it had a significant discount and by 2009 the Electromatics didn't sound Gretschy enough for me except the Corvette, and I couldn't afford any other Japanese Gretsch. If could get another Gretsch it'll be an orange or Cadillac green 6120 (I love the look of the bigger f holes), or a double cut, why not even a solid body? But I have a lot of fretboard to learn first anyway :) It still is by far my fave guitar, believe it or not it plays like aGretsch! <3

    I plug it in a Blues Junior Texas Red (Celestion Vintage 30 speaker), I'm so pleased with my sound :)

    Welcome YannG. The white binding really makes that red stand out. Has a touch of the classy sports car look also ;).

    Another froggy :D
    Bienvenue ! Belle guitare, j'adore la touche avec ses Neo-Classic Thumbnails (nice guitar, I love the fingerboard with its Neo-Classic Thumbnails). Is it a 2009 ?
    The amp should let her sing quite well !

    Thanks all for the friendly welcome :)

    Yeah I didn't like the silver pickguard at first but then it made me think of a sports car which was kind of cool but I think I'll get me a cream one instead like the aged white lining :)

    Merci :) Non c'est une 2005, she loves the amp :)

    Yeah, and it matches the tone better than the colour :)

    Welcome to Gretsch-Talk Yann G!

    Yann, I have a Tennessee Rose, too. Truly a fun guitar to play, and has all the Gretsch goodness.

    Merci pour l'effort de parler Français :) Détroit est effectivement un mot français, qui signifie strait mais je suppose que tu le sais déjà ;) Je suppose qu'avec les nouvelles Electromatic de ces dernières années équipées de Filtertron (et les plus abordables Streamliner), encore plus de guitaristes de tous pays vont se mettre aux Gretsch !
