I read somewhere of a conversation between a Gretsch fan and Fred Gretsch Jr. that went something like this: Fan: It would be great if Gretsch could get back to making guitars like the old Brooklyn ones. Fred: Over my dead body. I knew the intonation on my 1960 Annie above the 12th fret was off, but I thought they couldn't possibly have miscalculated the fret spacing. Well, while in the shop for some other work, I asked the luthier to check it out. Sure enough, the formula is off by about an 8th of an inch between the nut and top fret. I had stopped playing much above the 12th fret because it sounded so bad. I love the guitar, a 6125 conversion to a double Annie with light trestle bracing, so I'll be putting on a new fingerboard. I already had it refretted, but oh well, the things we do for love.
