    A Guy that chooses Bo Diddley as his avatar musn't be so bad, for sure... ;)

    Unlike many other brands, ANY Gretsch guitar has That Great Gretsch Sound / Look / Playability / etc... Well, ANY Gretsch is a Great Gretsch.

    Welcome EchoTwang !

    A+!

    Not yet, unfortunately. I’m almost there. Just trying to get some gear sold and then it’s Gretsch time! :)

    Will do! I’ll snap a photo soon.

    Well, just wanted to let you and everybody here know....I just bought my first Gretsch, a 5420, from a member here today!! I’m going to pick it up on Sunday. I’m super excited.

    I’ll post a shot of it with my amp after I get it home.

    Hey Echo, welcome to the group. Similar story to mine and others - lurked and finally joined, Fantastic group of folks here and even though there's a lot of talent and knowledge, no one seems inclined to make others feel inferior. Congrats on the 5420 and pictures seem to be mandatory. And enjoy the daily early morning Chinese spam.

    Thanks! You might have missed it, but a couple posts back I mentioned that I bought a 5420 from a fellow forum member yesterday. I'm picking it up on Sunday. Glad to be officially in the Gretsch club now! :)
