    There's just something about a Gretsch through a Vox, isn't there?

    You should be grateful to be left handed and 90% of all guitar temptation does not hit you.

    I’m lefty in everything but playing guitar. Are you saying I could have saved a lot of money if there was a left handed guitar around when I started playing?

    Yes and I think same applies to Gretsch with any good tube amp.
    Gretsch thru Marshall and Mesa amps are also matches made in heaven imo :)

    I agree. I was playing a Junior Center Block the other day through a Vox AC10, and the respond I was getting when I "dug in" on upstrums on chords was just *divine*.

    Ya know, just after I bought my 6120, a Setzer model popped up a few weeks later on an online at around the same price. I should have bought it!

    It is a good pairing. My Winfield Cyclone is basically the same as an early AC-15 (with the EF-86 preamp) and it sounds fantastic with a Gretsch.

    Guilty as charged....I've gone up to 67 years of age and probably 50 guitars though my performing years. Down to 17 and applying a new rule - sell one to get one. So far so good...what? SQUIRREL! GRETSCH! Look at that finish.....oh my gawd.....where's the credit card?
