Hi all, I don't post a lot but read this forum everyday - lots of nice and knowledgeable people here Here's my background. I am a telecaster die hard fan, it will always be my favourite guitar. I own several teles and enjoy playing them all, from AV to Squier VM series: they all have their character and I can appreciate it. My second fave guitars are the Les Paul Junior and the Gretsch hollow-bodies, and I usually buy guitars to remember important periods/facts in my life. I have pre-ordered a Gibson LP Junior and am actually waiting for the call from the shop and I am playing with the idea to try some Gretsch guitars they have in stock when I go there to pick the Junior up and eventually buy one - yes, I want to buy a second guitar because I just got a great answer about mu health (I have no multiple sclerosis!!) and in a few days I will buy my flat, hence two guitars for two big moments to remember. As I told you I dig Gretsch hollow bodies but I am lost when I try to understand the differences between 'em. For ex. the 5420 comes in with different fretboard inlays, which one is the model to look for? Buying new I think I will have no choice, but wanted to hear your opinion. I don't care for bid or thin body, single or double cut ecc. I am just looking for a hollow body to add to my collection, which one would be your pick? I mostly play punk, classic rock, alt rock and indie and am in contact with a guy in order to join his Beatles cover band (I would eventually play the rhythm guitar). BTW the shop has a ltd ed. 5420 TG 50s in orange and I dig the look of it, would if fit my needs? What model do you suggest? Sorry for the long post and thanks for your help EDIT: I prefer big U-shaped necks.
