    Finally signed up after lurking for too long!
    Normally semi active on the Gretsch Facebook pages but trying to cut my social media usage...

    Hoping to learn more about all things Gretsch!

    Oh and mandatory pictures of my G5420

    Forums don't count filled with solid info! I meant the garbage you see on Facebook & Twitter these days... Just noise!

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone else!

    Welcome to Gretsch-Talk!
     
  10. Welcome to a "Classic orange" 5240, eh ?
    . . . should show well here, G-T mate.

    Here's a tube . . .
    From The Comedy Hour a sixties show in USA,
    if ya' get by the corny opening typical of the comedy show, been always surprised at this song start sorta.
    [I keep playin' 1:05 mark and on, because it has always sounded like they all immediately break in together at once, but it looks like a recorded sound / synthesized keyboard just before bass and guitar start up before drummer and the rest.]
