    Just got my first Gretsch today, and I’m thrilled!
    G5422t in orange stain. Basic model but I’m loving it so far. E2CB65F8-3DD0-49F0-BE1E-19607EE87BBD.jpeg

    Welcome from another New Englander!
    A basic Gretsch makes for a fancy guitar.

    Welcome to G-T Jnbjordan. Lovely looking 5422! A wonderful start on the path to more :D Yes, they do tend to multiply somehow.

    As Radd mentioned, lots of very knowledgeable folks here willing to share if you have questions.

    Enjoy !

    Welcome. I remember when I got my first Gretsch electric and I have never turned back. The 5000 series of guitars are about the best value on the market for a quality Korean made hollow or semi hollow body. Nothing else sounds quite the same.

    You might think it’s basic, but it’s a beautiful guitar! No more basic than any other production guitar. Rock out and have some fun!

    Howdy! Welcome to the asylum!
    Nice start to your Gretsch addiction!
    A basic Gretsch outshines many others' top of the line guitars.
