    Hi, I am a relatively new player with 1 years experience and have fallen in love with and just purchased my first Gretsch, a 5420t.
    I am just wondering if there are any other female Gretsch players out there or if I am all alone

    Hello Caroline, welcome. You are not alone and we are always hopeful your number will increase. @Armygirl and @Sarah93003 are fairly frequent posters here :)

    Hello Caroline! Welcome along.... I have two Gretsch Guitars and a Gretsch Ukulele. I'm not that far ahead of you experience wise... and what a great guitar to start off with!

    Welcome Caroline,
    and congratulations, a 5420T is a fine instrument to start with. There are some rules around here, and #1 is "pics or it didn't happen". Everybody will be quite pleased to see your Gretsch :)
    And I love Cornwall, although I've been there only twice in 2006 and 2007 for camping holidays.

    I'm so old I remember taking the regularly-scheduled steam train to Cornwall. Both my sisters were born in Truro in the early 60s.

    Welcome to Gretsch-Talk Caroline. Don't feel unusual as a female Gretsch player, because there are plenty of females playing Gretsches these days. Besides, when you come here, you are simply a Gretsch player to us. The folks here will be happy to encourage you, help answer any questions, and generally make you feel like one of the Gretsch family.

    Congratulations on your 5420t, and enjoy that first Gretsch!
