    Hello every body!
    New here (I have post one comment before, sorry for that).
    Since I was 15 years old all my friends call me Eddie, don't know why but it comes from Mr. Eddie Cochran. I fall in love the first time that I saw that big and orange guitar in one of that LP cover. As I told, I was 15 years old and one Rocker!! I bought my first guitar, form one band, and played several years. Never have a Gretsch, about 12 years ago I bought a "reasonable" copy from China, now I have almost 50 years, lot of years ave passed since my last gig, and AT LAST a have buyed one second hand G5120. I know, is made in Korea, is Fender, but is mine! And it make me smile every time that I put my eyes on it.
    I'm soo happy with my Gretsch at last!
    Sorry for my horrible english!

    A greeting from Spain!

    Welcome to GT Eddie. I have a 5120 as do lots of others here. Learn Summertime Blues, if you don't already know it, and you'll be an authentic Eddie.

    Seeing Eddie Cochrane's 6120, George's Country Gent and Tennessean and later Mr. Setzer's 6120's are what got me hooked on Gretsch. Wonderful feeling when you finally own one of your own. Just beware. One often becomes two, becomes three ....

    Enjoy your 5120.

    Hello every body!
    Thanks a lot for your nice words!
    Here is my baby!
    Yes, another G5120, with TV Jones, clear pickguard and jack plate, a "new classic" ;)
    I also have my little Gretsch G5222 amp to make some noise (some times I "destroy" summertime blues ;) . The world looks a little bit better when I can spend a little time with both of them.

    Thank you all for your well come! A greeting from Spain!
