Wow! Nice looking Gretsch!
My humble Electromatic.
Someday there will be TV Jones.
Mines just a humble Electromatic Jnr, but mine has a Dogear P90 rather than a Gretsch style pickup.
Picked it up as a P/X and was going to do something radical with it and a resonator set up, but I am playing it as is, for now, as the neck is a chunky peach!!
Has a headstock like this
Anyone know 'owt about these?
Here is my 6120 RHH. Not exactly a fan of the Rev. but the features matched what I was looking for (12" radius, TV Classics, nitro finish, pinned bridge). I also added the treble bleed mod. It's my go to guitar and I seldom play anything else. Once I bought it my EJ Strat spend 8 months in the case ( 0after which I sold it and bought a G&L ASAT).
Though I wasn't sure at first, the western inlay has grown on me.
That is a great looking guitar and I'm sure an amazing player.

My walnut Electromatic 5122 with Gretsch Filtertrons and Compton bridge, and Gretsch Brian Setzer Black Phoenix with TV Jones classics. The Phoenix is the finest guitar I own, or have ever played.
My 59 or 60 Gretsch Clipper with case, hangtag, checklist, and keys. Yes it actually gets played despite the looks of it.
I need to stop looking at Gretsches.
Well my little Gretsch looks like this now
That is one cool looking guitar!
My latest addition. I'm truly in love. Even as a Tele guy this guitar is a pure joy.
And I've come full circle. When I was a young lad, into all the 80's guitar trickery my GrandFather took me down to his LP player and said "Here, this is a real guitar player." Of course he was playing Chet Atkins
2013 Gretsch 6119 Tennessee Rose
Got a Nashville, A Tennesean, and a Double cutaway White Falcon.
When I was figuring out what to buy for my first guitar, I really wanted a Gretsch but couldn't justify spending that much. So I bought an Ibanez instead. Less than a year later I spent a lot more than the Gretsch would have cost building a Warmoth Strat.
I started thinking I wanted a 5122, almost bought a black one, then I heard rumors there were going to be some orange ones made. I had to wait a few months but finally they showed up on Musician's Friend's website. I had one ordered the first day they showed up on the site.
The AF75 didn't get played much after that. In fact it got shoved into a closet and finally sold...
I was able to reacquire my 6122-1959 Nashville Classic. Here it is with a brass Tru-Arc bar bridge. I also recently got a 6120DS Nashville which is shown with it's new stainless steel Tru-Arc. The DS was offered for a brief time. It has the same specs as a DSV, but has square block fretboard inlays instead of the "Alamo" style and a lighted shade of orange finish. I sold the 6119-1962HT, the 3110 and the 3900 that appear earlier in this thread in order to purchase these. I'm really pleased to have them and my photography skills don't do them justice.
Some might say it's not a real Grestch since it was made by Hamer but I like it. I did replace the bridge with a SD Antiquity Firebird, bone nut, and Grovers. Looking to replace the neck pup with a TV classic
I'm a tele guy but I recently been wanting a gretsch ...must got it and liking it can't wait to break it in with a good ole jam session
Hey guys I'm new to the gretsch world and would appreciate some amp and effects setting tips to get the best out of my setup ... Thanks
First you have to show us your Gretsch!
Then tell us what amp(s) you have.
