    Yes, I love the ultra twang sound of the dynasonics to my 6120 lady.

    I'm from Essen. That's a big city in the middle of the strongest economically area of Germany. This area call "Ruhrgebiet"
    I know Heidelberg. Beautiful, sleepy city and the most important city of medical science here in Germany.

    Where are you guys from?

    Hallo. Toll aussehende Gretsch-Gitarren. Dein Englisch ist sehr gut. Wie ist mein Online-Übersetzer?

    Ich bin nur einmal durch Deutschland gegangen. Zuerst dachte ich, Ausfahrt sei so groß wie New York City ... dann habe ich herausgefunden, dass Ausfahrt bedeutet.

    Sound very interesting.
    Yes, we have american soldiers stationed in Ramstein, Stuttgart and some other cities.
    Did you like it here?
    If you come back to Germany one day, come around to Essen and say hello. It would be a pleasure for me.

    Welcome Rockoon,

    Your English is at least as good as mine, if not better. Most of the German people I met or worked with spoke easy to fluent English, and even some of them French... Conversely, French people is barely able to... Already speak French :oops:, so don't expect them too much to speak English or German :rolleyes: !

    With my band The Magic Orchestra we have been invited 2 times at the Nürtingen Musik Nacht festival to play at the K3N StadtHalle : 2013 and 2017.

    Nürtingen Obermaïer and Musik/Kultur officials came in France to our 30th Music85 / Magic Orchestra anniversary in 2015, along with the Rock'n'Roll band Lucky 13 from Nürtingen too. We also invited them for the Fête de la Musique in June 2017...


    And yes, like you, I own a G6119 - in LH version :D :

    the missile site where I was stationed has been dismantled. the little town has grown. the name of the town was GrossSachsenheim. a lot of the towns in the area have merged together to form Sachsenheim. besides I might get in trouble if I went back there. :D I had a very good time during the last Fausching Season that I was over there. ;)

    I have very fond memories of my stay in Germany. I do miss the German food.

    Chris could be a short version of my last name ... Germany, too. But not Essen, I don't really know if I've ever been there, maybe drove through this year or last year.

    Welcome! Stopped off in Essen for a pizza on the way to do a gig in Bielefeld in 1992! Good pizza!
