    Hi everyone,

    I've been spying on this forum for years so thanks for all the advice you have given without even realising it.

    I had wanted a Gretsch since I was 17 or 18 years old. They were always just a dream guitar for me. Beautiful clean tones and undeniable rock pedigree. But you guys knew that already, of course!

    I turned 35 last year finally took the plunge with a gorgeous G6118T-LIV Anniversary model. Without doubt the finest piece of wood I've ever owned. :D And I have a Cherry G5220 arriving next week, can't wait.

    So, I just wanted to say hi, thanks and long may the Gretsch love continue!

    Welcome to Gretsch-Talk, Benturner83!

    You certainly can't go wrong with an Annie, and they certainly get plenty of love around here. I'll also look forward to pics of the 5220 went it gets in.

    Gorgeous is an understatement......and already a second on the way. It's addictive! Whoops sorry I wasn't supposed to mention drugs, but then it's a good one to be addicted to.

    Welcome to the friendliest forum on the web( imho anyway)

    Thanks so much. Man, that dark cherry, what a colour. And your added Bigsby? Niiice. Did you need to do any heavy work to attach it, or does it just connect at the strap? I really don’t do many mods on my guitars but I’m tempted by this.

    Can’t wait to get my hands on it. Every video I watch or review I read makes me more excited. Seems like no one can believe the quality for the price.
