    Hi All
    Been playing Gretsch guitars for a while now and lurking lately so I figured I'd sign up an jump in the mix. I'm not big on Forums but there's some interesting topics here that I'd like to get involved with and I've got some questions of my own.
    Talk to you soon

    Welcome,

    I guess a long time Gretsch player has a Gretsch guitar? Which?

    Oh yes sorry
    Picked up a TRose with Filtertrons about 8 years ago and was hooked. 2003 used at a killer price. That's my go to axe. I also have my Great Grandfathers acoustic archtop Synchromatic which is in rough shape but still have fun taking it out of the case once in a while. Recently picked up a black Penguin with Duncan Dynasonics that i'm just getting acquainted with. One of the special runs from WildWood. Those pickups are pretty incredible
