    Just wanted to share...
    A little over a year back, I was looking and looking hard to add something different to my arsenal...
    The below video is the one that helped me take the plunge.
    No regrets a year on ... Just some change of strings ...
    Would be great to know if any of you have such memories of experiences that made you make a choice.

    No clue if the guitarist is a member here at G-T. It's a lovely rendition too...

    This video review was a clincher for a Monoprice Retro Classic Telecaster. I was always that guy that would rather have the Squier Bullet/Affinity preowned over a $ 99 guitar. The demo starts at 14:00 minute mark,

    His buddy next to him seems at ease with that great Gretsch sound.

    Oh boy! Yes, perfectly in sync... Likes the serenity I guess :)
    I have a friend's Golden retriever that comes down when we jam, he just wouldn't leave the room as long as the music plays :D

    Thanks a ton! Am already gassing for the new release with the p90:rolleyes:
    But this time, if I go for it, I will either go for the full hollowbody or the bigger 2622, definitely with a bigsby:p
    Also, I am very keen on the G9555 New Yorker... Need to save up!

    Gotta put the transport money in a jar as long as the wfh continues, it's coming real handy;)
