    Welcome. Congrats on a great guitar. Also congrats on a great record. I have the exact same LP and was playing it just last weekend. It had the same effect on me. Unfortunately it took me 33 years to buy my Gretsch (Tennessee Rose), which I got December 2016.

    Thanks! Same to you on your TR- they are beautiful. Yeah, 35 years is a long time to save pennies and endure delayed gratification.

    I think I found that LP in the import bin along with "Gonna Ball" and a four song EP after "Built for Speed" charted. They all still sound great.

    Import bin? Does that mean Stray Cats didn't release those LP's in US. I have Gonna Ball aswell but I'm missing the 3rd LP with "Sexy and 17" on it. I will continue to search. I also have a fourth LP called Blast Off

    Thanks! I think I'm beginning to understand the addiction everyone here alludes to. I may have to sell my solid-bodies...they won't be getting much playing time anyway.
