    Hello all,

    New member, long time Gretsch owner. I live in northern NJ about 30 miles north west of NYC. I own a couple Gretsch's a G6121W Roundup and a G6134T-58 White Penguin. Both modern builds. Love them both and need to add a center block to the collection in the near future :)

    Thank you,
    Sam

    I love them. I have one amp in particular, a mid 70's Sano that has great reverb and tremolo on it. Playing the roundup through it is awesome. There's depth and clarity I don't get from any other pickup I have.

    Welcome to the fold Sam. A great looking wall of machines you have there. Of course the Gretches are my favorite. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Thanks, I'm not picky about what brand I play, Gretsch, Gibson, etc, as long as they put a smile on my face when I'm playing them :)
