    Pedal power - Do you ride?

    Yeah I'm a rider - cycle toured across 12 countries, still ride most days. I have a Cannondale tourer (on rollers below - it's raining in Sydney again), a partscaster e-MTB (my daily commuter; you'll note the slicks), a Giant and a Brompton. As a cyclist, the older I get, the better I was...

    How long did it take you to get your first Gretsch after you started playing guitar?

    About 5 years from go to Gretsch - sold my Cort for a second hand Anniversary (from a retired forum member here). Then sold the Anni a few years later (to another forum member) to buy my Penguin (from another forum member of course). Got to keep it in the family! Peng

    Audept becomes "The Guinea Pig"

    Sounds complex and while very worthy, a bit onerous. You'll be looking forward to your next trip to Asia for a holiday! Damian

    Should Gretsch release an Electromatic Billy Bo Poll

    Why? For me, it's not about aesthetics ... simply, they are the most comfortable Gretsch to play of any I know. I've had big hollow body, thin hollow body and solid body Gretsches, and the Billy Bos just beat them all hands down. And they sound great. They are magic! :)

    Nice photos, Audept! It must be nice for Mrs Audept to restart the business, and in such a nice place too.

    Interesting but way outta my price range. (Tele content)

    Synchro, thanks for your comment; novelty and interesting I understand, but I'm wondering though, in what sense do you mean "impractical"? Commercial viability, or design flaw, or...? Peng

    1969 Used Price List Denmark St London

    Thanks Jim, That reminds me that I bought my first Gretsch from Wunjo Guitars in Denmark St years ago. Story was I had bought a red strat from a store out in the 'burbs and I didn't like it, and it was pretty much unused, so I brought it in to Denmark St and swapped it (with cash adjustment)...
