My Stern CS guitar IS better than the other Jets I have, have had, have played. Its that simple. To be clear its Not twice as good. Not better in proportion to the additional cost. But I love it more, it plays and feels as good as anything ive ever played and i cant imagine anything better. Yes...
Congratulations on your upcoming NGD
That is beautiful
And you are not going to get there and plug it in and be disappointed.
I mean it looks amazing. You know its going to sound incredible and play like a dream.
Happy 50th sir!
Im a big one for buying one and selling two.
I got my ES 295 and my...
Thats totally stock. Truss rod access was at the body end…..hence no truss rod cover on the headstock. Just another Baldwin era design change that makes them distinct. Another change that was unchanged as Gretsch entered the modern era and returned to more closely reflect its original designs...
D’ Addario NYXL 10s and 11s on all my gretschs (and Gibsons). Strings that feel familiar are really important to me….. and of course they have to sound bright and twangy. Seems like Nothing ive tried sounds better on a Gretsch for the way i play.
Sell the 6120jr.
There, problem solved.
Basically if you have to downsize Im interested in you downsizing without selling anything that i want because you have some KILLER guitars and i havent got any money in the bank right now.
Its all about me.
Do i miss the guitars Ive sold? Yes.
Have i reached out and tried to buy a couple of them back? Yes.
Would i sell any of my current 8 to be able to have back one that i sold? No.
The bottom line is that i have sold some amazing guitars on my journey to the ones that i have now. And with limited...
Really nice to hear that. Well done. I like the warmth of your voice.
chris Squire was an AMAZING musician. How he played what he played, sang the harmonies that he sang, counted everything (nothing was easy when Yes were writing their best stuff) and managed not to fall off his shoes or get his...
I did blindfold tests with these two jets for hours before decidingcwhich to sell. I learned a lot. Mostly that i am a terrible player if i cant glance at the fretboard!
The doublecut sounded ever so slightly grittier, dirtier, but not darker. Ever so slightly. Maybe. I had a very hard time...
I was thinking only this morning that i might sell one. Not saying which one because i cant bear to write it. But its a stunner. I just dont need to keep so many. But then you start talking about letting things go And i start thinking uh oh…. This could be very dangerous
I know you love your Johnny A but there’s something so special about a jet. I have been playing mine more than anything else since i got it. And when i put it over my shoulder i find that I want to play hard. I tend to want to thrash it more than my other Gretschs. Here’s yours and mine together:
It was sad about Embie going under and it wasnt pretty how they let some of us down with the website operating and processing order payments after they had gone under.. What they offered was such a great niche product. And no, noone seems to have stepped in to fill the gap.
For me the jack plate serves to protect the body from scratching as i fumble around in the dark to plug in on stage. Ive never soared to the heights of having a guitar tech do that for me. So it stops the guitar getting scratched by the jack tip and gives me something bigger to locate with my...
Glad you are enjoying the guitar John. At first i thought you must be mistaken I so I just checked my photos. You’re right! I kind of feel bad that i hadnt caught that myself. I can only imagine that it would have been a factory error because surely no two consecutive guitars would have gone to...
