    As everyone else has said congratulations on the new guitars and welcome to gretsch ownership.

    Totally agree with this about Korean made things these days, I work in earthmoving (excavators and the likes) and I can say that the Korean made machines and stuff like that are really closing the gap with the bigger name brands, as with the cars too, they really have uped their game with everything coming out of Korea.

    Great set of Gretsches, they look so well together and will complelent each other very well tone wise.
    Do you usually go for guitars in that colour?
    My Gibson Les Paul that has the same colour scheme and would fit right in. :)

    I must confess... I have a number of guitars in the deep wine red color. Something about that color seems to really resonate for me! :rolleyes:

    The walnut G5622T even kind of looks like wine red, but browner.

    I think that's it. Because aging ears lose their top end, so the greater top end clarity is arguably more capable of being heard by a 10 year old than a 100 year old (deliberately going to extremes!). But better string definition is something that comes with more listening and experience, regardless of the inevitable lowering of top end frequency hearing.

    Looks like a fun room! I'm guessing you hook the keyboard (which model Yamaha) up to the computer for recording - do you use it with VST's..? Curious, as I've spent a fair amount of time playing with Mainstage over the past few years. Great fun.

    Gorgeous pair!

    Also, ear strain will result in hearing less bright sounds. I would not be surprised if guitarists with lots of experience move towards "brighter" sounds to offset that hearing loss.

    It is said that as we move through the "golden years" (shall we say) that our ability to hear high frequencies does diminish!

    While I've been playing for decades, the vast majority of those years were not, fortunately, spent with ears being battered in loud band situations. Though in my early twenties (during the 1970's), I did attend numerous "rock" concerts in the SF Bay Area! :rolleyes:
