    yeah, we've got lots of bands here in Iran playing mostly rock and metal. blues is not that much of a fan gatherer but our band are going to change that! ;) based on the regions in Iran popular music is slightly different.

    Welcome from Iowa!
    You say there are many Gretsch players there? I think I can speak for most of us here in the US that we had no idea.

    Like most of the countries around the globe everybody knows fender and gibson. But due to the high prices they cant have one. Ibanez and LTD guitars are the most common ones. Gretsch players are not that much ofcourse but nearly all of them are bound to their instrument and can not play other brands. I know lots of players around which picked up my guitar, played it and suddenly they fell in love with it. I think if Gretsch was more active at advertising (i know that fender does the job) there would be no Ibanez player left on earth but Joe Satriani and Stieve Vai

    Do you have access to 'Made in USA" high-end Gretsches in music stores or mostly Electromatics (made elsewhere)? Are these (or any 'American') guitars bought in stores, or is it mostly internet purchases? What amplifiers do you use? And what kind of music do you play?? Too many questions!! Sorry.
