    As someone new to the Gretsch tribe I'm very excited when I come across bands that play our favorite guitar. This one seems to like them very much and I this is the first one I've seen playing a G6199.

    They're fantastic! I saw them live last weekend. Although the guitarist thinks his Falcon is crap from a technical point of view, he just loves the sound. :D

    Awesome!!! Love me a red billy- bo! And if it's hangin' off a pretty girl, even better! I think my next project is gonna have to involve an aftermarket billy- bo body and maybe a reverse headstock or lefty strat neck...:D

    To be fair,that Falcon is the worst one,with the telescopic trem arm and slanted T zone frets.
    At least he got rid of the tuning fork gubbins!

    In saying all that, i'd take it off his hands if he doesn't want it!;)

    Eman can build you one. He made a great Billy Bo for curmudgeonly long time member drumbob, who loved it.

    That looks really cool, but I'm glad I don't have to do the wiring!
