    I had already both seen and was watching that one. No zero fret so not rcboals, plus still for sale.

  3. Did a little search . . . but only found a Gretsch zero fret history . . . interesting enough to post for detectives on this one maybe (?) . . . I dunno.

    "Today the only true value of a zero fret is to make a reissue guitar historically correct."

    I may be wrong, but I believe the intent of the zero fret was so that open strings would have the same tone as a fretted string. As opposed to a bone or other nut material throwing a slightly different note tone. I’m sure if set up correctly they play great, although some don’t care for them.

    Nope

    Partially correct

    Nah that is what an ES335 is for :)

    Yes, it has a zero fret

    wrong color LOL :)

    You are so close to figuring it out give or take three years, hound dog. :) Clues, Chet Atkins, Walnut, Filtertrons, standby switch. Tennessee, Chickopee, Spirit Lake, Grand Lake, Devils Lake, Crater Lake, for Pete's sake, I've been everywhere.

    I wish it was, Raye. I nicked the photo from another member's post on the forum.

    2009 Gretsch G6119FT Chet Atkins Walnut Tennessee Rose (AKA: Tennessean) arrived today love the slim neck and 7 lbs 4 oz weight well balanced. Definitely has the great Gretsch sound with the Filtertrons.

    Congratulations and gorgeous looking. Maybe Gorgeous George is suitable? I really dig the faux f-holes on the dark walnut too. :)

    If it's a "her" maybe Georgia or Georgina would be more appropriate? ;)

    Congrats Raye, that’s a beauty!
    Last year I actually came close getting one too. I think an amp or two got in the way. :)
