    Hi!
    I'm going to London soon, and I want the check out some proline Gretsches (and possibly the Guild X-175B Manhattan) at the famous Denmark Street. Does anyone of you have any recommendations on any stores or dealers with a good Gretsch sortiment? :)

    Brutus :)

    It is not a very big street, you can easy check all of them. I was there the other day, there are some tasty guitars.

    I can't recommend any of them, I never purchased anything but some have a bit of a bad rep, so have your wits about you. :)

    Wunjo Guitars usually has a good few Gretsches, as does Regent Sound (as previously mentioned).

    Regent Sound was a studio back in the 60s. The Stones recorded some stuff there.

    It maybe helps if you dress well and look like you got money to spend. They were falling over to hand me white falcons to try. :D

    Regent Sounds looks good; they have a nice variety of Gretsch models:

    Yup. You want to buy a blue Gretsch in London, you have to commit...

    Guilty and undernourished. :D:D:D

    ONLY JOKING! Some of my musician friends look just like normal people, you'd never guess there was anything wrong with them! :D
