    I think the same person has been filling out the labels inside Gretsch electromatics made in Korea for a decade. That looks like exactly the same handwriting that's on the label in my '09 G5120.

    I can't wait to give it to my son for Christmas.
    He is the real 12-string player in the family. Unfortunately, he will be in Florida for 6 months for his last leg of a Music Therapy Program. We are planing on giving it to him when he gets a couple days off around Christmas. He is taking the 12 String Gretsch Falcon Rancher, the Gretsch Banjo, a 6-string Rancher, and a Cello for work in Hospice, patients react well to the Gretsch sound.
    I will send a video of him finger-picking something when he receives it.

    Thanks for everyone's support throughout the years, this site has really been the best support group we could find. When he got his first Gretsch in High School, he got picked on by the other kids telling him that his guitar was crap.
    The reality was that a Hollow Body Gretsch does not lie, you need to have good technique to have it sound well.
    All the nasty comments went away when the goofy Banjo finger-picking kid with the weird guitar was selected as the guitar lead in the Jazz Band as a Freshman.
    Sharing the sound clips and videos from this site was very inspirational and educational for us, we are very grateful.

    It looks like a nice one, and I am sure that it will have that Gretsch Sound.

    Here is a clip he did last summer, there was a patient that requested this, and he was practicing it at home.
    I am glad that he stayed loyal to Gretsch, and finger picking.

    Excellent . I had a chance to play this Gretsch 12 string acoustic one day at a music store . I was very pleasantly suprised how well it sounded ( I should have bought it right then and there ) .
    Your sons playing has inspired me to learn this song on my 12 . Rock on my man and be who you are , great playing and great video . Thanks
