Hello All - I'm CB from Chicago, new to this forum and new to Gretsch. I'm a Les Paul guy and have been playing on and off for about 50 years, since age 7-8. I recently joined a start-up AC/DC Tribute as Malcolm and was encouraged by my new band mates to buy a Gretsch. I got on the waiting list at Sweetwater and received the New Malcolm Young 6131 about 2 weeks ago. I played it for about 2 hours sitting down and loved it. Then I decided to stand up and put a strap on it and was shocked at the neck dive, much worse than any SG I have ever played. It literally dove past the horizontal center-line and was pointing downward. It took (3) 7.5 oz cans of Coca Cola still in the plastic binding attached to the rear strap button to correct about 90% the problem. I didn't want to add lead fishing weights to the cavity or relocate the front strap button, so I returned it. It was not playable for me. Question #1: I realize these guitars haven't been widely distributed yet and I was just lucky to be one of the first, but has anyone else experienced this? Question #2: I'm now considering older models. Is this a common problem with this model Gretsch, or are the older models with both pickups still in place free of this problem?
