Got to thinking..... I would like to know the age group you belong in. Can we determine what is the "average" age of Gretsch enthusiasts? If you are willing to play along, I, and I'm sure others would appreciate the random usless trivial information we might gain from this post. Please use the survey, and post if you like. I'll start. I am 47 years old. I bought my first Gretsch in my 40's.
