    You're a good son! Now, mow the lawn.

    I'm your Dad's age, and I guarantee he's tickled beyond belief by that beauty.

    Yeah, we used to play together more, but it had been a while. Looking forward to doing it again.

    GREAT thing you did. But, please help!! Here I am, kinda old too, but wondering:

    - how the heck do you start a thread on this forum?
    - is there a Gretch I can buy (kidless I am) that has that rockabilly tone, but can easily turn into a hard rock/metal beast?

    Well, any Gretsch can do what you want. The main sounds are in your fingers. These streamliners are inexpensive, and can ROCK if you want them to, or play smooth and clean if you want them too.
    Go to a local music shop and fool around with their selection.

    I've had two Gretsh guitars, a cheap on and and expensive one. Both rocked for metal, and the 6122 does have classic Gretsch tones and more. I could trade it though, for a Les Paul plus a lower-end Gretsch and might just do that. Thanks calebaaron for the tip on posting.

    Well, I had to put a bigsby on it for him! I shoulda known a Gretsch gift is incomplete without one. This v cut B6 with Towner bar is far superior to the B70 that comes stock on the T versions anyway.

    Shout out to @section2 for directing me to the new posts I needed for the Towner Bar. :)
