    After a couple of years as a casual browser of Gretsch Talk I've finally joined up! I've been a big fan of Gretsch guitars since my teens when they were way outside my budget so I had to content myself with playing them at friendly music stores. After some years I was able to buy a 1957 Duo Jet which I owned and enjoyed for nine years until I foolishly allowed it to be wrestled from my grip by a fella who had been pestering me for months. Anyway, as consolation I recently bought a 53 VS Duo Jet which I find hard to put down so my other guitars are being rather neglected.

    I'm looking forward to joining in the many interesting forum discussions.

    Welcome! And I'd also like to see pictures, not just of your Jet, but all your guitars.

    We are crazy for guitar pictures...
