    I've just listened at the radio the Urge Overkill cover of the old Diamond's song... For me it's a lovely song, with a twangly killer riff! I thought that it was a Gretsch sound, so I found the video of the song and descover that the guitarist plays a beautiful Gretsch guitar (it looks a semi hollow body with "cat eye" holes)! It looks to me that it could be a G5622 semi hollowbody, old model but I don't know if the G5622 was already in production at that time (the song is of 1994). Could anybody help me to identify that guitar???

    This is the video:

    Yes. Great! Thank you! ;)

    Do you know if it's a full hollowbody or centerblock?

    They did a very nice job on the cover, and it was nice to hear the song again. It had been too long.

    As to identifying the Gretsch, I'm just not enough of an expert, since I came to Gretsch just last year.

    I made a short research on internet and i found that the 6117 'Cat's-Eye' was only produced from 1964-1967, and never even appeared...

    :D

    It's a great song but like you said, the tile is a bit creepy. It reminds me of a couple of Gary Puckett & The Union Gap songs: Young Girl, This Girl Is A Woman Now, etc.

    Are they songs about jailbait? Maybe. ;)

    I had listened to the song many times, but had no idea it was Diamond's or what it was called.

    Thank you ! Awesome tune

    The song is great but creepy. Neil Diamond was 26 when the song appeared. It was directed towards his teenage fans. Eeeewwww.

    Mrs Daddy will officially become a woman when she learns to do some ironing. It'll be a long wait; apparently she's "allergic".
