Gorgeous, I'll take a dozen please.
The guitar is pretty. Not sure how its sounds with a Broadtron, though.
The BT pup makes me wanna pass.
I love the color scheme.
Id ditch the Broadtron for a neck TV Classic.
Geez, do you think you could be as little less subtle.
The jack plate is not mussing, they didn't install one.
.... lol ( that's a good one )
Thats reaaaaalllllyyyyyyy beautiful wow!!!!!
For what I recall, he was a 330 man. It’s the reason I bought one back in the days
Yeah, what's with THAT?!?!? Gretsch guitars have the "G" on the knobs! Another bugaboo I've had, and the same here: I can understand with the more "budget" guitars, it's maybe a "perc" you don't get, but with their Pro Series guitars, unless they're trapeze or non-vibrato tailpiece instruments, I firmly believe they should ALL be appointed with the hi-end Gretsch "V"-cutout Bigsby vibrato tailpieces. Generic Bigsbys look fine on most guitars, and they're great, but they somehow imply being an add-on accessory. The "V"-cut Bigsby makes a bold statement that only a Gretsch professional instrument can make. IMHO.
Maybe they're operating on the assumption that most potential buyers are adults who can play a guitar without breaking it.
Um.... does Rich Robinson really need 2 artist signatures? I haven't heard about anything from this guy since The Black Crows. Is he really putting out that big of a musical footprint, pulling down that much money, and advertisement opportunities for Gretsch that this would be a good business decision? I mean, Martin Gore of Depeche Mode has been playing Falcons and custom made Anniversarys for years while putting out a very strong and consistent body of work, and is FAAAAR more influential in the music scene. In 2018, they're Spirit Tour played to over 2.3 million fans and made over $187 million. Yet, he doesn't have one.
I'm sure RR isn't pulling those kind of numbers. Is Gretsch, once again, going after that 50 year old to boomer market based solely on nostalgia... considering they're the only group that could really afford a proline.... ;-)
Very true. Most potential buyers would prolly just play it at home on they're couch dreaming of being a big musical act.... just. like. me.
I do agree with this, I'm 33 and to be honest couldn't even tell you what songs Rich Robinson is apart of BUT I can tell you a few guitarist that are playing Gretschs that are in todays spotlight that could be worthy of a Signature model, even if it is for a short term, and I know I'm being biased but I still can't figure out why they don't bring back the Chris Cheney sig model as they would sell them in spades, especially here in Aus if they were priced a tiny bit better then they were.
For a time in the 1950's Gretsch just had the arrow on the knobs. It wasn't until a little later that they added the G also.
my Penguin G6134 had the arrow with the gemstone.
The articles that I posted in the OP are recent, but this guitar was announced at least a year or so ago.
No you are right, there is two Rich Robinson models, the one you posted in the OP and the one in that video which is the custom shop one, looks to me though like one has a feather sticker on the top side and one doesn't lol, I'm sure htere is more but I'm just being funny.
In Australia Magpies are regarded as a pest.
First reaction: WoW !
That is breathtaking.
