    Is there another mod/admin? Apologies if I missed anyone.

    In comparison to some other forums (which seem to have no rules about courtesy, civility, trolling, etc.), this one is far and away the best.

    Sorry if I have been remiss in participating. I'm still working through the issues I had with my flu event from 2 years ago, and of course, the pandemic.

    That's all. Thanks and be well.

    Ohh...and play those Gretsch guitars.

    Agreed. This is a very civil forum, in part due to the excellent character of it's membership, and in part due to the kindly diligence of the moderators.

    They are both Gretsch players. I wouldn't expect anything less than excellence! :):cool::)

    This site is an island of friendly civility in the cesspool of the internet.

    I don't care what you say about Synchro and Thunder---It all can't be true.

    I did the moderator/Admin thing on a forum with 100,000 of my “friends”……..It is no easy task and our two do it better than anybody.


    I have said it before, thanks for keeping this place so civil

    You can say that again.

    Who knew being kind and respectful and not talking about the three things your parents told you never to talk about could yield such fabulous results?

    I love the "all-in" vibe of all things Gretsch and non-Gretsch. I know the discourse here has had a major affect on my last 6 months of tone shaping/creating.....even down to the choice of the Tele-type guitar I pulled the trigger on in May....my first Tele!

    I can think of a ton of members with ease whose input is full of sincere and well-thought input. Me? I am certainly the happier player for it!!

    As a plus, Thunder has me jonesing big time for a D28 Dreadnought(wife would kill me though), and Synchro has been another with solid input that has kept my pedal search focus "on track" because of his knowledge......and will probably get the Sugar Drive because of him sooner rather than later.

    It was the Gretsch talk that made me come here, and it was the incredible civility that has made me stay.
