    Youd be hard pressed to sound like that without a gretsch!
    Whats the full rig rundown?

    That’s some sweet Gretschy sounds and playing. That RE-20 is getting it nicely done as well.

    I own three Gretsch -two proline and one 5420t and yes the Gretsch sound is awesome. But.. for what it’s worth I can get a very similar sound( not better or worse) with my Carbon Copy through my amp using my Stratocaster and EH power boost. Strats are very versatile instruments. What depends more in my opinion is the amp and effects you use.

    For me, the greatest Gretsch sound was primarily in the hands of Chet Atkins.

    That’s nighttime music with a lot of black outfits going on.

    Sounds great! I just grabbed an re-20 and have been figuring it out. The slap you get from it is pretty cool

    A bit too many repeats IMO. I have had three Gretsch guitars still have one. My Tele and SG do come close.

    Great post, to me there may be close substitutes for that Great Gretsch Sound,. IMHO, Gretsch has THE sound for me.
