    Gretsch Custom Shop's new 2022 Masterbuilt collection

    Considering the inflation we have, the price for a custom built guitar is not super bad, not that I would buy one. Went into the supermarket to get a whole chicken... It was $28.00 so no 2 chickens in every pot anymore.

    The Guitar Purchase Years

    HOLY CRAPOLA, That is a lot of guitars. From 1965 - 1970 I had ONE, Got another but then I gave the first one to my nephew (a nice Silvertone in an amped case) from 1971 - 2006 only the one, then I bought a new Fender Telecaster, later traded the Tele for a Gretsch and a Strat, Now I had Three...

    If Correct, It's A Sad Day For Rock and Roll

    I fail to see how a death is tragedy, It is a natural part of life, we are all going to do it whether we want to or not. I do get sad when death comes to love ones, having lost 3 children.

    Cheap Guitars…

    OLD inexpensive yet well built = Univox 60's made in Japan Es335 copy. Even today it plays and looks better than the Epiphone version. Binding is still tight, finish not bad, buckle rash and cymbal crashes. Original pickups and electronics. Sounds awesome, I keep her with my expensive models...
