    I know! I don’t even know who I am anymore. I ALWAYS buy Gretsch! ALWAYS!! But I also always said if I were to get a guitar that wasn’t a Gretsch, it would be a Backlund Rockerbox! One of the older models with the 3 pickups and a maple fretboard. I saw this one on Music Go Round for a ridiculously low price. I’m guessing because it was pinstriped. It’s actually a really good three tone pinstripe job. The guitar is in perfect condition and plays great. The neck is fat and the guitar is growly! Very happy with this one. And cudos to Music Go Round! It was packaged well and these don’t come with a case so they included a padded gig bag with it. 12B761CB-86D4-42C5-B2E2-4CA5D5C949B8.jpeg 8A7C3C5E-7BC7-4F48-B71C-1585E49510F8.jpeg 0B7C9FC1-61C8-41F9-87BF-95C9A6347853.jpeg

    Very cool. I'm not a big fan of pin stripes but that looks good.

    This is such a cool looker. Congrats.
  13. Nice. I take a look at Eastwood’s site every now and then to see if they have these, discounted. I would like a three pick up model, but dont need one. Its more of a want. I like the design and color schemes they have. Congrats!
