....and that's all that matters . Congratulations , she's beautiful
Congratulations! Hope you love it.
It has parallel tone bars.
If the cheaper of the three is sold with Seymours and the original pickups are part of the deal, you have subtract the price of the Duncans from the price-tag. That sounds quite like a good deal.
Congrats, you chose wisely. Great looking 6120T. You should enjoy that one for sure.
The original pickups were part of the deal. It was a very good price and my choice came down to that one or the 6120t-55. I decided on the 6120t-55 for it being more “traditional” and having the TV Jones T Armonds. Price was a little lower than the EC w/Duncans.
Looks like you've bought a great looking guitar. Hope you bond with it.
It's not the cost of the documentation/warranty...it's the value of the documentation/warranty.
Also, personally, I'd stay away from anything that's been rewired, regardless, of whether or not the original components are included. The custom shop pickups have no value, if the installation work was poorly executed.
The Eddie Cochran Sig. isn't a guitar where you want to cut corners, by thinking you're saving $200./$400.
Hey welcome back man. All good?
Congrats Pete,that is just gorgeous sir!
Thanks! I never had a Gretsch before so I’m really looking forward to trying it out.
Not quite yet!
Janet still recovering in hospital. We've been given a release date of September 22nd, maybe even earlier.
Her left hand/arm is coming back...left leg...not so much.
Our Daughter flew in on Friday to help me unpack, and get the new digs all set up, and except for some tweaking, we're done.
She's flying back to Toronto tomorrow.
This is going to be a long/slow/lonely month.
I will be taking a ''Primary Care Giver Course'' at the hospital this week, which will allow me exemption from regular visiting hours...looking forward to it.
All for now, best, thanks so much...
I don’t have an issue with either they both look good to me.
you buy that guitar brand new, you still need the nut dress and saddles dressed for whatever strings you decide works for you. Secondly they NEVER EVER #$%&#$%*[email protected] set their pickups up properly. Everybody's mind is blown once the pickups are set to the proper height. On the cochran, you need a shim for the dogbone p90. The body of the pickup is too far away on the stock instrument to get the response it was designed to give. Also more shameful is gretsch uses very inexpensive rubber foam shims on their filtertrons that overcompress and lose their "pushback" within a year. So you have to pull it out and put quality neoprene in, a material that keeps its shape allowing you to adjust your pickups readily over the years. I just did this on the gretsch panther I bought.
I like that clear pick guard...
Sorry for the delayed response, I was in a cabin up in Combermere all week, with no wifi. Glad to hear there's a glimmer of hope. Keep the faith!
