    Been playing for about 15 years, mostly Gibson and Fender. Just bought my first Gretsch. Looking forward to learning more about them.

    Welcome! And great handle, by the way. People sometimes see my Roundup and say "Hey, great sounding Les Paul!" (insert face-palm here). I used to have a Silver Jet I referred to as a Gretsch Paul, but only because it was so heavy, not because it sounded like one.

    Three beautiful words... Out for delivery.. LOL. Should be here today.

    I picked up a Fairlane Blue Pro Jet Electromatic. I'm keeping an open mind, but I'm going to assume that pots/caps and pickup swap will be in my future. We will see. I'll let my ears decide

    Here she is...

    Strings changed. Needs a bit of a setup tweak and a slight truss rod turn
