I love the gretsch sound, put filters in my 5129. Some said I was mad to remove the Dearmonds but they’re not like Dynasonics (will likely sell the Dearmonds as never been close to refitting). Also got a red sparkle G6129 and fitted Setzer pickups which suit the guitar well. People talk about "the golden age of guitars" but, as far as Gretsch goes, I think that is right now. That will provoke some comments I'm sure!
