    Hey folks. Good to find you all.
    I'm Darren from Sutton Coldfield in England. Only started playing guitar about 6 years ago, bought a 5420 four years ago and have been a very proud owner of a dark cherry Falcon for almost two weeks now.
    I have much to learn about playing and gretsch-lore in general. I've played Fender & Epiphone guitars but nothing beats a Gretsch, as I'm sure you all know.
    Looking forward delving in here.

    when I look at your Falcon, I think, I need a new Bigsby:

    Thanks, folks. It is a truly beautiful guitar and I've gone way over what I thought I would spend on one, but once I saw it...

    Aymara, I've been toying with the idea of fitting a Cadillac tailpiece, but I'm beginning to have doubts now. I don't use the trem much but it looks so good.

    Musicman100, it came from Fair Deal in Birmingham. It was considered 'B' stock because it was ex-display and was a fair chunk cheaper than what everyone else sells this model for, though I'll still be paying it off for a while yet!
