    I would hope it's in a different league to a duesenberg.

    They certainly sound pretty hot to me. But growly and clear hot, rather than that thicker and warmer Powertron hot. And beyond that, I can't tell you what the differences are, other than it's clearly been designed to be quite a different beast from the one you'd expect from its looks.

    The only real problem is that while I do love and it's going to be used and played out, I doubt I'll be truly worthy of it.

    Nonsense. Anyway musical instrument ownership is not a meritocracy. And if you feel that bad, you can always get me to play it for you...

    What makes you think I'd consider you any more worthy? ;)

    Something we need to discuss (still :oops:) over coffee and biscuits clearly

    Well of this isn't just plain old dirty and nasty tonal heaven, I don't think I'll ever find it.

    A little time getting these two acquainted and getting some real ear ringing goodness at the same time.


    And while I'm here, a credit to the Gretsch CS for the most amazing aging job on this guitar. Thankfully, it's really not relicing as there's no damage to it anywhere. It's been aged to look like it's been crackling and tarnishing over decades of being beautifully looked after. Exquisite workmanship.
