    Why are Guitar Players So Conservative?

    Yeah that was one day of filming and I think a lot of instruments were being passed around between bands (and also Chromatics were in a few eps who use(d) a lot of Gretsch guitars) - I was thinking more of his music and his kinda avant garde surrealist sensibility and aesthetic as a person - I...

    Why are Guitar Players So Conservative?

    David Lynch playing a Parker Fly with a cigarette makes perfect sense, much in the same way as Setzer and a Gretsch, or a cowboy hat and a tele I think

    Why are Guitar Players So Conservative?

    I think guitarists are in general conservative (not in a political sense of course), probably because so many of us get into music because we love music and have certain sounds we like that we want to make, which makes us seek out the way those sounds were made (or an approximation thereof) - so...

    Gretsch Jet or a Jazzmaster?

    I see it was probably a typo cos you have Jazzmaster twice but just to clarify for others Jazzmasters are 25.5 like a strat or tele etc, Jaguars are 24 Beautiful guitar on the left with the Descendant!

    Ditching The Bigsby [?]

    You can always get a pedal like the Boss PS-6 or a Whammy which will be able to do Bigsby-esque jiggles, or perhaps more appropriately the Gamechanger Bigsby pedal if you want to get the Bigsby sounds on any guitar without having the vibrato installed

    Any rumors of new 2023 lines, colors?

    I notice all the regular 6120s and the Country Gent 12 String are all gone off Gretsch's website in Aus at least

    Gretsch Jet or a Jazzmaster?

    Not my pics but these are the two guitar (models) I have and I find Jazzmasters are a nice counterpoint to Gretsch while also being able to feel like they fit together as well. I think a Jet with Dynas and a bigsby or a Jazzmaster will cover a lot of the same ground tone wise and its really more...

    New 6120 Day. It’s….alright

    I love those 6120s with the dusky orange color. Beautiful! ebony is endangered and is a slow growing tree, all guitar manufacturers are now using lighter bits of ebony or bits with grain. It's not really time spent or not doing the extra steps, it's availability (there's not enough ebony for...

    Why Buy This Instead of a Jet w/ Dynas?

    Guitars are definitely cheap even at the high end compared to violins, pianos etc... but yeah - the JL guitar is obviously targeted at a niche high end clientele like most (all) Collings guitars - I guess their Waterloo acoustic line is more affordable

    Surfs Up!

    5420 is great and I don't think value wise anyone would be upset about someone having added a bigsby, and it would certainly be surf capable. Otherwise a single coil Fender with a trem of some kind would work - Strat, Jazzmaster etc...

    Gretsch production moving back to the US?

    I feel like it makes way more sense for bolt on solid bodies than Gretsch's and heading into probably a recession/being in more challenging financial times atm anyway, idk that making guitars more expensive and inaccessible is really a great idea. Glad I picked up my Gretsch when I had a chance...
