    Can't work, Daydreaming all day about the sounds that come out of these gish darned Gretsches. I have been excited and enthused for over 30 years, BUT not like this. It is a problem, But I don't think I will get the right type of therapy here. Nope IMG_2410.JPG 58906037597__A3D14648-5985-4CF1-9F81-D3B814CC4331 (1).JPG IMG_2355.JPG

    Still better than rock and roll fever or boogie woogie flu.

    Nothing that two day bed rest and a new gretsch could not cure. Maybe their is a shot for it, don't know.

    It's a sickness. I came down with it recently, myself.

    I can only hope I don't wind up with as many Gretsches as I have Teles! YIKES. :rolleyes:

    I had that problem, and still do. But it made me pick up and play the guitars that I already have a little more, and that really helps scratch the itch and discover what might be missing from the collection to target for the next acquisition... Hmmm, the next one...

    If that's your whole collection, I don't see a problem. Yet.

    I think one should own every bird and number of Gretsch. And every form of Fender made.
