    Along with playing' em, tweaking guitars is my thing. I guess that makes me "crappy".

    As has been stated many times in this thread, this style of guitar (hollow/semi-hollow electric) has always been made with laminated tops.

    And all the Gretsch prolines are made at the Terada company in Japan, and have been since their comeback in the 90's, no secret there. The electromatics are the cheaper ones made elsewhere, like Squire, but again it's no secret.

    Heritage is a former Gibson factory that as far as I know, never made Gretsches.
