Hi everybody, first post here! I’m on the hunt for my first Gretsch after a chance encounter with an Imperial Stain streamliner. I’d read they aren’t super representative of the Gretsch sound which has lead me to possibly buying a 135th Anniversary G5420t. Has anyone got experience with this model? It’s the cherry/casino gold model. Its a lot of money for me and my main question is it going to be a great guitar straight out of the shop? (The particular guitar I’m looking at is new from a Retailer) Having done some reading over the past week, I get the impression some guitars aren’t so great stock. I do love that the Bridge is secured though. I play alt country / drone kind of stuff (think Earth / Jesse Sykes ) and also in a band which is more Roy Orbison kind of vibe and think this would be a great guitar for the job. Any insight appreciated, great forum!
