As the title says, looking for a Panther. Whaddaya got?
Did you try calling / emailing Rocky at StreetSounds in Brooklyn ? ... ya never know what he's got
My dude, i think you just got lucky. this is way cheap for a panther http://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Gr...-Black-Panther-Hollow-Body-Electric-Guitar.gc
1200 for a Panther ... oh my ... that's less than 50% of the original price.
It's also worth checking Reverb regularly.
Generally they can be difficult to find. Good luck with the search, Panthers are great guitars.
Thanks for that tip- could be the one (& leaves me enough funds for the TVJ's and the tour case I'll need for it.....)
The Panther doesn't need TVJs. It sounds absolutely superb with the HS Filtertrons:
PS: I also have no critique about the case.
PPS: But it definitely needs a better bridge. I chose the ABM 2400, which added more sustain and a much better tone.
The panther makes any pick up put in it sound better. Stock filters sound better, tv classics and my tv setzers all sounded and sound better in my panther than any other gretsch I own.
Where's the one for 1200? (or is that converting $ to €?)
I'll definitely give the stock p/u a try, but I need to make the Panther sound as close to my Phoenix w/p'tron+ & magnatron p/ups as I can (the point of the Panther is something a little easier to play on tour than the Phoenix). I know its not going to sound just like the Phx, but want to get it close.
The Guitar Center link above ... 1285€ = 1589$ … still a superb price.
Try it stock first and take care of the crappy stock bridge ... I highly recommend a brass bridge to improve the bass responce.
PS: With Gibson Brite Wires the Panther is already very twangy.
Pulled the trigger. Picking it up on Friday. I've got a SS compton around somewhere that I had on a Jet I used to have- if the radius/etc is right I'll probably try that first. And a Chet arm for the Bigsby.
The Panther has 12" ... congrats, btw!
Congrats! I have many lovely Gretsch guitars but my Panther is consistently my "g0-to" guitar! Happy playing!
Congrats, that is an amazing deal.
Glad it worked out! I have a chambered solid steel compton on my Panther and it made an amazing instrument even better. Made me get rid of my ES-335 as the Panther was just so much more of a pleasure to play.
The Panther is one of the best Gretsches of all time in my opinion and I'm still shocked, that it was replaced with the Broadkaster.
Awww. Did you really just want to unload the 335?
The Panther is the better 335
Joking aside, the Panther's playability is superb and with a brass bridge and pure nickel strings you're also close to it's tone, if you want.
In my (!) opinion the Panther is the much more versatile guitar.
I wonder if it has anything to do with the rosewood regulation. I hope they bring it back for those who never got a chance to find one. The tension bar bigsby on the broadcaster is a big turnoff for me
We have several Panther fans here in the forum, so I guess the reason was the Rosewood CITES.
I'm pretty sure, if the Panther comes back with an ebony fretboard and the cable jack at the side instead of the top, it would become the best selling double cut hollow body.
