    Overseas shipping...

    Anybody ever ship overseas? Is USPS the way to go or would UPS be better? I'd be shipping a Tru-arc bridge to Denmark, so it would be light and small.... Any advice would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Noisy Bigsby B70 on an Epiphone Johnny A...

    I have a Epiphone Johnny A with (I believe) a B70 on it and it is really noisy...it squeaks, creaks and makes all kinds of horrible noises when I use it. Is there any adjustments I can make to quiet this thing down, or should I just bite the bullet and put a B7 on there? I see a B7 on Reverb for...

    Gold Bigsby "soft" spring....

    I have the Reverend soft spring in all of my Gretsches, except the ones with gold hardware. I thought there was someone on this forum that was making a gold version of that spring and did a search for "gold spring" but no luck...was I dreaming?

    Finally got to see Brian Setzer...

    Went to see Brian Setzer's Rockabilly Riot last week, at the Arvada Center (north of Denver)...what a FANTASTIC show! I was seriously impressed...I've seen him on the tube a number of times, have listened to him since the early days and no doubt his skills and energy are great, but he puts on a...

    PSA - Pretty Blue Hotrod on Ebay...$1200 and 0 bids....

    I've seen this one before and nobody bid on it. It's now down to 3 hours left and still no bids....is something wrong with it? I don't want it, got one of those Fairlanes working its way to me, plus Hotrods don't have enough knobs for me to fiddle with...but I know there are Hotrod lovers...

    Guitars you've never seen....

    I have a couple of guitars that I bet nobody here has ever seen, let alone played! They're from a company out of Japan called Hell Guitars (http://hellguitars.com/) and they make some fantastic guitars for easy on the pocket book prices (under $700 shipped), using good hardware, Bare Knuckle...

    Fretboard radius and Compton Bridges...

    Thinking of getting a Compton Bridge for all my Gretsches, but most importantly I really need one for the Terrada-made '05 Tennessee Rose 1962-HT I just got because the "Rocking Bar Bridge" that is on it is actually a 20" radius and it doesn't ever return to the same place when you touch the...

    A Rose is a Rose...

    I've been thinking about how much I like my '05 Tennessee Rose, really a lovely guitar with F-holes, 25.5 inch scale, ebony fretboard and those great HS Filtertrons. A joy to play, lovely tones, looks great (sometimes I just sit and look at it's awesome Redness), sounds good clean and crunchy...

    '55-ish Silver Jet repair project

    A friend has brought me an old (possibly 55 or 56) 6129T Silver Jet that needs some work...actually a lot of work to make it pretty, but definitely needs some new electronics to get it to be functional. It was his Father-in-laws guitar and he was quite a player in Wyoming many years ago. It's...

    Rocky Mountain Ronbo...

    Hey there - Ronbo from Colorado here...I'm new to the forum but not new to the love of Gretsch guitars. Had a 70's Tennessee Rose back in the 80's, but traded/sold it to purchase a Rickenbacker 4001 bass so I could live my dream as a playing/touring Rock-n-Roller. The Rockin' thing was fun for...

    Comparing 70's Tennessee Rose to present version

    I have the opportunity to purchase a newer Tennessee Rose for a great price, having owned a 70's version (not sure what year it was) in the Mid-80's which I loved but sold/traded for a Rickenbacker 4001 Bass (I was more of a bass player back in my working musician days). I now may re-sell the...
