Gorgous guitar. Congrats, Dougmon.
Great looking guitar! If I was in the hunt for a new Gretsch, that one would definitely be a must see. Congrats!
And, for once Filtertrons without a...………………………………………….Mud switch!
Someone up there is listening.
Congrats,great looking geet!
Love that colour! The Bigsby...not so much.
You don't like the Bigsby? But it's a good Bigsby...well behaved...brings me my slippers at night...
Without the Bigsby, I don't know that I would have figured out that there's binding at the nut on the G string...so it did serve a purpose..
Apropos of all the messages that have gone before...I like how people on this forum seem to be really jazzed when someone gets a new Gretsch!
Beautiful, love the orange
players Edition necks? I don’t know if they are all the same, but I love the neck on my 6228 players edition.
Congrats on the new guitar
Best looking orange finish to ever grace a guitar!
I think a tension bar bigsby can work great if they’re set up right, and this puppy looks right!
I know there’s a LOT of hatred for B7’s and B5’d here, and that’s fine.
Those of us who’ve had them work just fine know they’re awesome!
Yeah, “orange” doesnt seem quite a big enough word does it?
All I really want is to get that warble down and I'll be fine with it.
Incredibly beautiful. That orange is something else.
I’ve never had a problem with the B7 and I wonder why Gretsch has choose to fit all his newest model with it if they knew it wasn’t working properly if the setting isn’t right, but having both B6 and B7 in my guitars I admit that B6 has a way better feeling.
Anyway, this guitar is a color scheme masterpiece. I absolutely love the black pickguard.
Lovely guitar, congratulations!
Oh i like a Bigsby ,i only have 2 Gretsches that don't have one and i'm happy about that ,my Falcons have to have a Caddy tail!
I'm just not a fan of that Bigsby,prefer the feel ,and look, of the B6 myself.
But i have say it wouldn't be a deal breaker for me,cause that guitar is class sir!
Oh, yeah, I see that. There are many folks here who don't seem to be fond of the tension bar Bigsby. I have to admit, after a short honeymoon phase, I can see where it's contributing to tuning problems. But I see that as more of a nut/bridge problem, and in a little while I'm taking the guitar to a local repairman who can help with both of those. And if the Bigsby is still a problem, there's alway the BiggsFix.
Speaking of short honeymoon phases: does anyone know what strings come stock on a Gretsch? I have to say I'm not crazy about them, and would like to avoid them in the future.
But so far, these are minor quibbles. This guitar has me practicing like I haven't in years.
It's a beauty! What is it about the neck that would take getting used to? Too fat/thin? Sticky finish?
I stopped playing everything except my acoustic a few years ago, and any neck that differs from that will take some getting used to for me.
