    I had this delivered to me the other day. 2016 Gretsch G5420T in Orange. What a great guitar. Light weight, great neck (24.6 scale), and of course great tone with the blacktop p/u's!

    8 yrs as a lurker? I guess I had nothing worthwhile to say. What amps are you all using with your Gretsch's?

    Currently I'm using a 76 SF Champ or a Super Champ XD. I'm thinking about the Vox AC10.

    Anyone have any experience with the Vox?

    I really don't know why I waited so long to own a Gretsch. I have always been partial to twangier guitar tones.
    I changed the strings the other day. First time for me on a guitar with a Bigsby. Not very difficult at all, just took a little longer than usual since it was my first.
    In other news, I did get a Vox AC10C1 via a great deal on Reverb. This makes for a very nice guitar/amp combo.
