    Hey there! Just got my first Gretsch - a G2655 Streamliner - and i'm looking forward to many interesting discussions here!

    About me:
    Started playing guitar way too late in my life but now i caught the fever and try to catch up to all those kid's, showing off in the showrooms of my lovely hometown Cologne.
    I was draged to Gretsch guitars from the first time i held one in my hands but went for something easier to play at first. Now i felt ready, got me a Gretsch and regret nothing!

    Enough for now..... see you in the forums;)

    Welcome to the forums. A Gretsch is highly addictive. If you're not careful you'll wind up with more than one. ;)

    And one of my ex-girlfriends in from Cologne.

    Welcome to the group jmkoeln. We love pics here so show us your lovely Streamliner. And yeah, hate the showoffs in the showrooms. I always feel inadequate. EDIT: Well crap I see you put up pics on another post. I like the single barrel color.

    Thank you all for this warm welcome:)!

    Beeing close to the next authorized Gretsch-parts-dealer, i didn't waste time and went for the next little upgrade:

    A proper toggle-switch-tip...... suits the rest of the nickel hardware perfectly:D

    Hier und da. Also wirklich nur hier und da, ansonsten bin ich nicht besonders öffentlich.

    (Here and there - really only here and there (german musician's forum), otherwise I'm not that publicly visible).

    Als ich das letzte Mal in Köln war, umsteigen auf dem Hauptbahnhof, war Rosenmontag. Letztes Jahr. Ein 1,95 m großer Transvestit mit unsicherem Gang, langen blonden Haaren und dunklen Barstoppeln hat mir lachend auf den Arsch gehauen. Wir Niedersachsen bekommen vom Karneval ja nicht so viel mit, außer Braunschweiger, die spielen sowas auch ... daß Rosenmontag war, ist mir erst eingefallen, als ich schon weg war.

    Anyway, it's nice around here, and whatever questions might pop up, this is the place they are most likely to be answered correctly.
