Welcome, cool looking Tennie you have there.
My favorite Gretsch pickguard shape (by a Tennessee mile, natch). Welcome!
Here's another Canadian welcome!
thanks for the kind welcome. The MM is a treasure for sure.
Hi AllenK, yes that is how the guitar is set up. It was like that when I bought it. I never knew enough about the guitars to know that this one was different, always thought it was how they came. Only when I jumped on here to learn about them that I realised mine was different.
thanks afire, yes this Tennessean is different with the knobs instead switches. I just learnt this! Never realised anything was out of the ordinary until jumping on this forum. It's a volume control knob, and a tone knob or blender as you say.
thanks, they've been unplayed for 2 years since I moved house. I just set them up for the first time, good to be back on them and be all set up ready to play.
Thanks Dana. This group is great.
thanks Highroller. I'm learning so much about the brand on here. The oddball nature of some instruments has appeal. When I first saw my Tennessean I thought it had a classic quintessential jazz style to it, just loved it. Only now I'm getting know the broader styles under Gretsch and some of the history. It is excellent being able to see so many great examples of different models on this site. thanks for your kind welcome.
Are you in Sydney?
Hi Audept, we're about an hour from Sydney, in the Southern Highlands
Y'know, with a name like Gretsch CAT, you really need a Gretsch with Cat;s Eye sound holes.
At least you're not in lockdown like we are in Inner-West Sydney.
Welcome. Gretsch + Music Man = Sweetness.
But you already know that.
howdy wabash slim, I had to look up 'cats eye'. They look great. My CAT reference is to Chet but I would love to have a cats eye gretsch some day.
Hi G5422T, it's a beautiful combination. The Mark Knopfler page here is a good source of info on MM amps, otherwise there is some good youtube clips about the history of the amp. Mine is the original with the 12AX7A tube, a '74. I had no idea about all this until I started trying to work out how old it was. thanks for your kind welcome, this is a great forum!
Everything sounds better with Cat's Eyes!
Welcome from Paris, that’s a beautiful Gretsch you have.
