    I am just getting started with Gretsch guitar madness.....I have. Red Corvette, a 5622 in vintage orange stain, and a 5420 in orange stain.....all of them are equipped with Bigsby.....
    I am learning to set up guitars myself, as there are no techs in my area that can get actions low enough to suit my ocd demands.
    I am wanting to be able to change pups, and do proper cutting of nut slots....
    I have a Peterson strobe that lets me get intonation dead on...but I am here to learn from guys and gals that have experience! I hope none of my questions as I learn Gretsch anatomy. I am happy to have found this fountain of knowledge.

    I am looking seriously at getting a top tier made in Japan Gretsch model......but I have not decided which example will be adopted yet.

    Being your own tech is a definite money saver over time and certainly gives you a feeling of accomplishment. Learning to work on my own guitars was one of the best things I ever did. But be careful, it can start you on the road to being a serial modder. I’ve been working on my guitars for a while now but am also new to the world of Gretsches. I have 2 and am planning for more. Welcome.
