    after 47 years of wanting to start playing guitar I went out and bought a Gretsch(542oT)

    I'm taking guitar lessons, Which are going well.


    PS I've also got a telecaster

    Welcome. I started learning guitar again after abandoning it 35 years ago. Never too late. Oh, and I'm learning on a G5420T. You'll love the Gretsch community.

    I bought the Gretsch first then went back to the shop to buy the Tele, They had a White Flacon on display and I went to look at it... I got two steps before the Wife grabbed me by the collar saying No you don't !!

    Welcome. People outside of the UK and New England are not going to know how to pronounce " Leicestershire", we get:
    Glowchester (Gloucester) Warchester (Worcester) Bill-err-i-ca (Billerica or Billericay) Lee-Oh-minster (Leominster)

    Welcome to the group Monty. Never too late to learn. Your wife is a smart woman!!! You have a fine guitar and the Falcon won't make you better. Since I see no one has mentioned it yet, we all like to see pics. It doesn't matter how many we've seen, we still lust to see one more. Best of luck with your lessons!!
