Hi Teledriver. My new Gretsch is black. Here’s a photo. I’ll definitely work on an avatar.
Thank you for the warm welcome.
A Jet, well done. You are going to enjoy it. Thanks for posting the pic
Welcome , Thats a good lookin jet, Enjoy
The black Jet looks great! Might make a good pic for an avatar too. Welcome to the forum.
Welcome from Canada!
If this is new from the factory, I am curious, try this experiment. Tune it up, then put a capo on fret 5. Does it remain in tune? Mine was a tad off due to the strings being too high at the nut. It may have been fine for a six string, but definitely noticeable on a 12. I don’t expect all of them coming out of the factory to have this problem, but this is something easily fixed by a good guitar tech, if you notice the strings stretching sharp when you fret or capo.
From on newbie to another Welcome
Yeah, looks sharp! Always like the V-tails too.
Thanks. I’m originally from Toronto.
I’ll try it. I don’t I think it straight from the factory. Right now it’s staying in tune pretty well. Tuned it up to regular scale the other night.
Going to get that avatar picture up.
Jeffrey, we’re building up to a full set... From Donovan and The Byrds to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, to the Beatles, Sinatra, to The Band, John Hiatt. We’re about halfway. Maybe a little more. On a sidenote, I found a music store near where I live that will do it set up and string change for 30 bucks. Is that considered a good deal? My Jet is in good condition plays well out of the box. Just thought it might need a proper set up.
Nice jetter. Ops is that a word ? Thanks for the pic.
Well that being the case, a great addition for the sounds you're working on would be a 12 string electric. Used often by the Byrds, Tom Petty and some by the Beatles. Gretsch makes some very nice offerings, but probably the king and most used is Rickenbacker. One of those is on my list, hopefully in 2020. If the budget is a heavy consideration, you can get much of the way there with a Danelectro. Gretsch has both Electromatic (mid priced) and Pro Line offerings (get's into Rickenbacker price range).
Also thought of a 12-string. Now possibly not for you @Petewrite if you're playing the lead guitar instead of rhythm guitar.
Anyway, that Jet baby needs valves to shine.
Welcome from the UK. This is a very good forum, no crap and good advice when needed. Have fun.
Welcome here. Don`t be shy. These guitars are made to bring out some of your best tones. You got to explore them to find it.
