    Hey guys,

    first of all I wanna say thank you for the great Gretsch talk forum.
    It's so helpful for all my question I have.

    My name is Chris, I'm 36 years and I live in west Germany. A part of my family live in the United States California.
    My native language is German so please excuse me if I do not write perfect English. I do my best that you can understand me :)

    I started playing guitar in the age of 9 and played in many local rock band.
    Today I do have my own recording studio and produce different music styles for different artists.
    Of course, I record my own songs, too.

    Gretsch guitars have been always my favourite. I love the sound of the hollowbody 6120 or a 6119 Tenny.
    I own both.
    I've bought a 1989 Tennessee Rose in a pretty good condition with filtertrons and hollowbody for 950€
    Beautiful warm and full sound.
    But I still don't know if this guitar was made in the USA or Japan already?

    The 6120 Nashville is in a mint condition and from 2004.
    I exchanged the filtertrons for Gretsch golden dynasonic pickups with a result that kiss your ears.
    More twang than everything else what I've been heard.
    Spicy, lovely sound - absolutly amazing!

    I'm looking forward to meet cool Gretsch and rock'n roll fans!

    rock on, Chris

    Thanks! Makes sense, as I believe 1989 is the first year that Gretsch took the brand back and started producing in Japan.

    Welcome: So you like the dynasonics on the 6120? I have those on mine as well. May I ask which town you are from, I travelled a bit there and have friends close to Hiedelberg.
