    F5D9BC4A-6264-4D02-A0F7-D833407A22DF.jpeg Hello everyone. I’m in Austin, Tx. I have been visiting here for quite a while and decided I should join now that I’m a Gretsch owner!

    I had my eyes on a G5420T for a while and pulled the trigger when I randomly walked into GuitarCenter and they were on sale for $650. It was a great deal.

    Thanks to so many people on here my first upgrade was the TruArc bridge. It made a world of difference and I highly suggest it to anyone with a Gretsch. I’m now currently waiting on the 920d wiring harness and TV Jones Classic/Classic+ to be delivered.

    I’m gonna end up getting more GRETSCH guitars, I just know it.

    I just noticed your Bugera V5 in background. A excellent little champ of an amp for home, I have one too. Mine both loves and comes alive with my Nocturne Atomic Brain pedal. It’s seriously like night and day.
