    Long time player here and happy owner of 4 different Gretsch models:

    a '78 Super Axe 7681
    a '99 Nashville 6120-60
    a '99 Silver Jet 6129T-57
    a '12 Rancher Jumbo 5022CE

    They're all different and they're all great!

    Thought I'd join up and check this place out. I see a number of members from other forums I've been part of over the years and looking forward to talking guitars with new and old alike.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the best forum on the interwebz! :D You'll get a lot of help, make many friends, and probably end up with a few more Gretsch to add to the quiver.

    The only rule... "Pictures or it didn't happen!"

    We REALLY like pictures around here!! ;););)

    Thanks! I'll see what I can do about those pics. Hard to believe, but I've never done a group shot of them.

    Thanks!

    Age is taking its toll on the electronics. They're finicky. Some days they work, others not. No where near reliable enough to count on! The average stomp box does a better job anyway, so I don't really use them. It's still a fun guitar to play.

    Here's the picture I promised, not the greatest photo, but you get the idea. I think it's finally time to retire my old Coolpix and get a new digital camera! LoL!
