    Greetings Gretsch Lovers,

    I'm new to the forum and would like to thank everyone for helping me pick my first Gretsch - a 6118 Players Edition Anniversary.
    After researching the forums I decided on the 6118. It's my first real hollowbody electric, and a perfect compliment to my solid body axe. I've owned 335s but this is a different animal. What a sweet tone! Thanks again to everyone for the thoughtful comments that lead me to such a great guitar. -Robert

    We love spending others people’s money :cool:

    Players Edition Gretschs, they really are well thought out guitars with just the right features.

    You did good.

    Welcome to the forum Robert, we are known for good advice, friendly support, wonderful administration, but have been known to help people spend their hard-earned money.

    Honestly, being bitten by the Gretsch bug is a good thing.

    You picked a real beauty.
