    A visit at Guitarpoint in Maintal, Germany, is a great chance to discover a very interesting page of guitar-history: the adventure of Gretsch with solid-body guitars in the 1950's. In particular, I had a close encounter with a vintage original 1955 6130 Round-Up, formerly owned for many years by Brian Setzer, and a 1956 6128 Duo Jet.

    Thanks for sharing.
    I really witnessed that this shop is bleeding out due to retirement of it´s owner, though.
    Used to be a trusted European scource of certified vintage instruments but more in the Gibson / Fender vain.
    Not on the cheap side, though.
