    Hello, how is everyone ?
    Thanks for having me here, guys. I'm not by any means a musician or proficient player, rather a very enthusiastic amateur and aficionado. This "music" hobby turned out to be more serious than expected, as I bet happened to many people here and all around, but to cut a long story short, the only thing I lack more than talent and musical knowledge is money, yet I managed to become a proud owner of two gorgeous ladies; Rita (G2622) and Mary (G5415).
    I'll post some pictures as soon as I fix my phone's camera.

    Once again, glad to be here and thanks for having me.

    Pedro

    Welcome aboard Pedro! This forum has nothing to do with being a musician. The only prerequisite is you must enjoy fantasizing about gear....and all the better if it has the Gretsch logo!
    :D

    Hi Pedro glad to have you aboard. I think larryb has a valid point. Fantasizing about gear is what we do!

    Welcome to Gretsch-Talk Pedro!

    I agree that a common issue for many of us is that we have too many guitars that we want, and too little money to get them. :)

    Hey guys, to be honest I wasn't expecting such a warm welcome.
    I guess I shouldn't be surprised, if I take into account what's the thing we all have in common, good taste.
    Here go as promised some photos ( excuse the quality), I was thinking about changing the knobs of the G2622 (Rita) to the g-logo chrome ones I only seem to find them on eBay ( but I'll talk and investigate more on the right thread).
    The 5415 is the most recent one (5months tomorrow). Different but just as enjoyable to play. These are no white falcons, but they are mine to love and play, and unless some greater evil, forces me to sell them, they'll be here for as long as they want to ;).
    Please don't mind the white "project" on the back, nothing to see there, just some 35€ small time squire.


    Thank you all and hope to hear from you all.

    Pedro

    Welcome, nice pics. A $35 Squier? Why so dismissive, I bet it's better than the guitar most of us started on.
