new member here ... don't know anything about reading music or making music, but I just got a Gretsch g2420t and I love it. I had a five string banjo for several years and got tired of the sound. I loved playing it, I just got tired of the brassy sound. I thought for a while about getting one of the Eastwood tenors but decided one day to look at Guitar Center and see what is available. Wow, its amazing how little help those folks are. Anyway, I like the sound of the Hollow body and decided on the 2420 with Bixby. Slow going with my stiff fingers learning chords. don't want to ramble on ... here's a picture of my new guitar.
