    I got my first gretsch this week a G665TG BroadKaster Jr I'm loving it.
    the fulltron pickups to me (personally)
    sound better then the filtertrons (That will definitely start an argument lol).
    the Cadillac green looks great think it's my favourite gretsch colour. P_20210305_132644.jpg P_20210305_132723_1.jpg

    I have the Electromatic center block jr, LTD edition, it is a very comfortable size, the blacktop filtertrons work just fine for me.

    I really like that tortoise pickguard, goes great with that green, and your included case is nicer than the budget case I found, not sure where you can get that particular case separately. Now, does that guitar also have a jack plate?

    Welcome Lucy and a fabulous looking Gretsch. Way to go for a first. No argument from me with respect to Fulltrons sounding better to you than Filtertrons. My preference is the other way around but this is all subjective. Whatever works for you is best.

    Welcome to G-T, and congrats on the new guitar! Be aware that they do tend to multiply somehow :rolleyes:. A great start to the addiction that is Gretsch.

    cheers

    It does have a jackplate ^-^ and you get that case if you buy a gretsch Proline guitar but you can also buy it here https://m.thomann.de/gb/gretsch_case_g6241.htm
