    Hey folks
    I'm Jack -- been a guitar player for a very long time, only recently got into playing Gretsch guitars. I currently own a new Electromatic, a Jim Dandy and a Style 3 acoustic. Beautiful, well built guitars that play and sound gorgeous. Looking forward to expanding my Gretsch collection!

    I also have an active YouTube and Instagram posting gear videos and pictures. I've reviewed all of my Gretsch guitars which I'll share in the appropriate forums --

    Welcome to the Forum, Jack. Your song Catherine is quite beautiful. I hope to play that well some day. It’s a long journey for me, though.

    Thank you, I appreciate that! Catherine is a very special song for me as I wrote it for my wife just before we got married (although didn't get around to recording a real version of it until just before our 10th anniversary... better late than never?)

    Thanks!
    We live in Saco, which is about 30 minutes or so north of the York/Kittery area. Its a beach town which is nice. York and Kittery are gorgeous, just tough to navigate this time of year with the tourism (not that I'm complaining -- great for the local economy).

    Welcome to Gretsch-Talk, Jack!

    I got a chance to check out your website, and got to hear some very nice music (yes, Catherine is a beautiful song and if it was inspired by your then to be wife, you are indeed a lucky man).

    Now that you've been bitten by the Gretsch bug, I see a few more guitar shootouts in your future.

    Thanks for the kind words! I agree -- I'm actually trying to get my hands on a Streamliner to do a shootout with the Electromatic for anyone on the fence. Also want to get my hands on a higher end model. I've always lusted after those Cadillac Green Country Clubs!
