    I think these were for the summer NAMM despite the show not happening. So they’re pretty new in town.

    Great price for a great guitar! Entry level Gretsch that anyone can afford.

    I think this was shown in another thread a few months back ... I too fell in love ( .... yes , again :rolleyes: ) But I bet this one is even better with that P90 in it . It's reminds me of Gretsch's version of a Tele but with a little more growl to it . Go for it !

    I bet that a double P90 version will be the next version at some point.

    Well I’ve decided it wouldn’t a good purchase right now. I have this beast that it would never contend with. Duncan 59 and Auburn P90. Best P90 I’ve tried. Real woody with clarity. Think Dave Gonzalez guild. This is an ash body with satin nitro and All Parts TMO chunky neck. It just sustains like crazy. It’ll do AC/DC good to. It’s wired with. 3 way and out of phase switch to get that Green tone. So I think my money would be better off spent on whiskey, wine and women. Lol. I would like to try one out one day though.

    I’d be happy with that Tele. It looks like it’ll cover a lot of ground.

    I am. I just wanted back in the Gretsch family. I have two hollow bodies one is an Ibanez and the other is a 55 Silvertone. I’ve owned several. But none could take down my Ibanez. I know that’s crazy.. but it’s a special guitar. I’ve had it for 11 years. I just dressed the frets on it last month. If an electromatic pops up cheap I’m going to grab it and mod the hell out of it to what I like. I love a P90 in the neck position.

    Nice little guitar.
    At this pricepoint you cannot do wrong.
