    I got the Gretsch bug bad lately and couldn’t resist this one that recently popped up at Dave’s Guitars. Stock with TV Jones Classics. I already grabbed a Compton, from a member here of course, that I hope to see before the weekend. Here’s a sample. Using 2 amps. Blackface Princeton with 12” vintage JBL and an Ebo Del Rio 1x12- Stereo preamp/splitter- Vintage Korg SDD-3000 digital Delay-Ebo E-Verb Tube reverb-Vemuram Jan Ray pedal.

    Looks very much like a Bono Falcon without the BS pickguard standard on that model.
    Congrats @BrianK, it's lovely!

    Congrats on the Falcon!! Very nice color.....

    I have to ask, is that a variac? If so, how much are you dropping the voltage?

    It’s a custom built stereo preamp/splitter, that allows you to run two amps, built into a variac. Built by Danny McKinney at Requsite Audio. Based off the ones he’s built for Ry Cooder. The knob on top acts as a master volume for both amps.
