I started a similar thread in the Electormatic forum which had some amazing replies and I learnt a lot too. I was checking out the Bellamy Brothers on YouTube, and to my surprise, their latest song features a Historic Series Jumbo. That guitar holds its own against a Guild F55 too. Don't take my word for it, check it out yourself here: Personally, I wish Gretsch/FMIC would bring back those mahogany bodied Ranchers Jumbos. I really miss my old Preerless made G5022c and there's no way I'd part with my G3410 Rancher Junior.
