Hi folks, well, what a wonderful resource this is! I don't know how many times my Google searches have brought me here! It all started when I saw an Instagram post: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bt3H7O3H8O7/ I'd only ever seen KT Tunstall's playing her White Falcon and never paid much attention, but this one? I dunno. Maybe I was just ready. I was in love. Back Story: I'm an acoustic guitar nerd with a few high-ends, all single-luthier built apart from my SCGC. I owned a B&G Little Sister Crossroads for about a year but never played it. Other than that, I'm a complete n00b when it comes to electric. Now, to Gretsch. That Instagram post kick-started over two weeks of research. There was so much new vocabulary to learn - Filter'Tron, DynaSonic, T-Armond, Tune-o-Matic etc. I made a spreadsheet and started figuring out models and years and appointments. So, what conclusions have I drawn? Good question. Firstly, I want fingerboard inlay, not just the Neo-Classic thumbnails, but humps and feathers or cowboys or blocks. That narrows down the field by a large margin. I would also like a Bigsby tremolo. Doesn't matter which one. I'm not too bothered about pickups; I'll be playing at home mostly, possibly using for teaching too in a classroom (my side hustle at the moment). If I *do* gig with it, it'll be in small restaurants with not much volume and no stage monitors or anything like that. So, inlay narrows it down to these as I understand it: G6136-55 Vintage Select Edition (no Bigsby but I could add one?) G7593 Billy Duffy (I prefer gold trim, but chrome is okay) G7593 2003 model (I've found a used one for £2200) G6120-55 Vintage Select Edition Chet Atkins These are the ones I've found so far that are within budget and that are available to order. Bear in mind that it was the White Falcon that caught my attention and has been giving me sleepless nights, but I really do like the inlay and orange colour of the G6120-55. Now, not only have I never played a Gretsch, I've never even seen one in real life. The used G7593 looks in good condition but there's tarnishing around the pickups and that puts me off a little. Well, it is 16 years old after all! I'm not bothered about the smaller f holes. The Billy Duffy model is the same, right? Would gold trim on a NEW Falcon tarnish more readily than the chrome trim on the Duffy? I think I *could* get used to the chrome trim, and I know from the year with the B&G that the humidity in my home causes tarnishing. But that Chet Atkins with its cowboy inlay is just lovely! Hmmmm. The supplier that has one of these available for order has a new one discounted AND they've given me a 15% coupon to use by the end of March so it's actually coming in at £2390. They also have the G6136-55 and the G7593 Billy Duffy without discount, but there's still the 15% coupon. So, that's what I've come up with after just over two weeks of research. I don't expect the used G7593 will hang around for long... Any thoughts? Anything obvious that I've overlooked? Thanks.
