    G3110 Historic Series?

    That 1990 origin date is on Reverb. I could be wrong about the dates here, but I dont recall seeing the Historic line until about 1999 or so. They only lasted a few years until about 2003 or so, just before the first Electromatic G5120's started to appear. They're pretty cool, if not a tad...

    String Suggestions for Vintage Archtop Acoustic?

    I finally got my May-Bell back from the luthiers a week or so ago. The Martin Monels arent a particularly " Acoustic-y" string. They kind of respond similar to a pure nickel string on an electric archtop with Dynas. I personally like that. A big mistake is to try to get an acoustic archtop to...

    WOW i actually said wow! (CCR)

    Watched it on Thursday. What a great live band! I can't say I've seen much live CCR footage over the years, so this was impressive. And for my money, Tom Fogerty is THE rhythm guitarist's rhythm guitarist! 😉

    String Suggestions for Vintage Archtop Acoustic?

    I have a pair of the Martin Retro Monels I'm going to have strung up on my May-Bell, which is currently at the luthiers. Can't wait to try them out.

    Favorite Pre-FMIC Models

    I had a Pre-FMIC G3156 Historic (Lotus Ivory/Grey w/cats eyes), I heavily modded the controls to match a proline Gretsch and added Dynasonics. I really liked that guitar but I couldn't get it to sound like me. It now resides with Rob (Tartan Phantom).

    Minty Tenny at MGR

    I didn't look that close at the pix (the finish seemed a bit dark for a vintage Tenny). but looking at the inlay of the GRETSCH, I was mistaken that it was newer model. If it is a '63, in good condition, that is a good price. Buy it.

    Replacing Hilotrons with Filtertrons in a 1966 Tennessean

    Maybe try a set of TV Jones HiLo's? They have a but more output. I have them in my VS Tenny and sound great . . .they do HiLo cleans as they should and take dirt like nobody's bid'ness.

    Minty Tenny at MGR

    A Tenny is a wonderful thing! Seems a tad overpriced for used, though. I'm guessing there should be some of the pre-Vintage Select models out there for a bit less.

    I'm playing a Guild M-120e and a Gretsch "Way Out West" Americana with Deltoluxe pickup. . . the solo is the Americana plugged in direct.

    The worst tribute/relic ever?

    That is not my cup-o-tea. But hands-down, the worst "Tribute" guitar (or maybe it was a "signature" guitar) ever was Gibson's Jimi Hendrix "Strat". ( Sorry for the excessive quotation marks).

    Unexpected NGD

    I find the unexpected NGD's to be particularly fun . . .and the fact that it's a vintage Tenny; that, my friend, is a bonafide hoot! Play'er in good health! :)

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

    A drill bit over 7 years. I started playing in October of 1990 at the age of 22. I bought a NOS 1993 G6128t-57 (one of the first RI's) in January of 1998. It soon over took my Ric 360v64 as my #1. :-)

    Unplanned NGD - 1930's May Bell Archtop

    That progression makes sense to me. I found it in a funky, little shop in Bellingham, WA.
