    Came across a Gretsch Tennessee Rose G119-TR
    and I called about the guitar. I told the collector
    what I had a Fender American Standard Telecaster
    and a Steinberger GR4. The Gretsch is from 2005
    and I could trade both guitar for the Gretsch:cool:
    Should I do the trade here are a couple of pictures
    of the Gretsch:?:

    All I can say it that I have an original 1962 Tennessean and a 2008 Power Jet. I love them both. In my eyes they were worth what I paid for them which at the time was more than I had previously ever spent on a guitar.

    I dreamed for 15+ years of having a 6120. After finally buying one, I do love it but still haven't gotten used to playing a hollowbody. I've been playing a tele for so long, my style is used to a solid body.

    Love my 2011 MIJ Duo Jet, but they are rather different from any Fender. Beautiful craftsmanship, tone and incredible action.

    Today I talked to collector who has the G6119-TR and
    I told him about the two guitars I have. A Fender Telecaster
    and a Steinberger GR4 and if I wanted to I could trade both
    of my guitars for the Gretsch whic was made in 2005. I would
    still have to go over to his place and play the guitar it looks
    mint. I would go from two guitars back to one so here is a picture
    of the guitar and my Amp. Do you think this makes a good setup:?:

    Tenny Roses are awfully nice guitars. I have a 6118 Annie, and it's a lifelong keeper.

    Value-wise, it seems that the Steinberger and the AM Standard Tele are worth about $750 each (based on a very quick search). Of course, given the market these days, maybe not that much.

    That kind of gets you in the ballpark of the value of the Gretsch. So it really comes down to what you'd rather have.

    Can you hold the Tele and flip the steinberger + cash for the tenn rose?
    You would certainly have a dream rig with that amp, tele and rose.

    Shango66 not having a job since April and with bills to pay
    I had to sell one of my guitars. It was the Telecaster that I
    let go and I kept the Steinberger GR4. When I find another
    job I can save I do like the Gretsch, Rickenbacker, and Parker
    which I've had in the past. When I had those guitars I did not
    have my Top Hat. I know what the Rickenbacker and Parker sound
    like thru my amp but I don't know how the Gretsch will sound.
    I know most people would have sold the Steinberger and kept
    the Telecaster but I like playing a guitar that you don't see a lot
    of the time and the neck on the GR4 is so easy to play and does
    sound good thru my (King Royal):)
