Long time lurker first time posting! I’m from San Diego and don’t quite own a Gretsch yet. Still haven’t decided on a new 5420t or to fork over some extra $ and treat myself to a Chet Atkins/Brian Setzer/ Reverend Horton Heat 6120. I’ve been playing guitar for 15 years and the upright bass throughout my time in high school and most recently college. The information on this site has been a wealth of knowledge and I hope that one day too I will be able to contribute.
