    EF63762C-A9AE-4040-B420-C66BDE96BCFD.jpeg I bought my first and only Gretsch, a Fairlane Blue 5420T in 2016 with TV Classics. I own a high end Gibson Les Paul, Fender Strat, Tele, Heritage ‘59 ES 125 T and a few more. However, my 5420 is always out and in the guitar stand in my music room and the guitar I play most of the time. I just love the look, feel, tone and playability of this guitar and can’t put it down.

    That's good to hear! I just bought an Aspen Green 5420 and I'm picking it up Sunday.

    I just made the final payment on mine. It’s a great guitar.

    I definitely like the man cave, and I'm glad to hear that you love that 5420 so much.

    Your room looks like a great place to record. Were is the boom mic ? I know how you feel about putting down your 5420. My other guitars don't get much love these days.
