    YES, it is. Thanks

    I was in a shop selling a LP... the Gretsch was there... and just couldn't resist. Dynasonic are amazing, very Telecaster like (or maybe the opposite)

    After saying I wouldn't get another guitar anytime soon (as it takes me ages bonding with a 'new' guitar) I've found myself looking at Gretsch guitars, in particular the G5622T in black, though I also like the Orange one too. I'm going to try some out at various shops to get a feel for the various models as there is a Streamliner one I also like, but I'm not up to speed on the models/numbers.

    I figure it would be a good change from my small Tele/Les Paul/Strat collection.

    ...I might be back. :)

    I very much agree as i want one of those fender mij traditionsl jazzmasters in a big way.

    I however solved that gas problem by purchasing another analog synthezizer.

    Yes i am a 3 year old. Haha.

    Don't underestimate the MIJ g6119 tennessee roses. I'm using mine more and more it's a beaut + has the Fender scale if you prefer that

    I'm OK with the shorter scale as I also have two Les Pauls (One Epiphone and the other is a Gibson 60s Tribute). The G6119 comes up at around twice the price of the ones I'm looking at though. Andertons (and others) have the G5622T for around £700.

    That's still the most expensive guitar I would have bought (my Gibson 60s Tribute Gold Top was £650 bought used), so I'll no doubt do some mulling before I commit. :)

    Are those Embie-Matic bridges? I've been wondering if I shouldn't pick up a couple of those for my Gretsches... I've got Comptons and a Tru-Arc on three, but I still have a couple that need an upgrade...

    Yep, Embies on the Duo Jet and Streamliner.

    The Jet has an Embie with an aluminum base (not ABS plastic) with a black anodized finish. Aluminum saddles on the wound strings and micarta/canvas phenolic on the plain strings. Embie calls these saddles ‘bakelite’. The Streamliner is a stock Embie with plastic base and said ‘Bakelite’ saddles. Great stuff, but palm muting technique will need a very slight adjustment, even with the flat pan head screws.

    Pro Jet owner here. I opted for the Fairlane blue one with Blacktop Filtertrons vs. the brand new ones with the Broadtrons simply because of the color and the fact that I had a good experience with a Filtertron as my bridge pickup in a Jazzmaster I had a few years ago.

    I like it a lot, but having single coils for all of my other guitars, it's still taking some getting used to as these are darker, hotter pickups than what I have in my Tele, Jag, and Strat:

    I rushed an order through last night. I've been looking for a while, as per my posts further back and only got to play one last week (G5622T in Walnut). Last night I noticed all the usual sites I visit had increased their prices, so a frantic search ensued and I managed to order a Black G5622T for £715 from a place in Exeter online (Andertons had jumped to £850 since I was there last week).

    Now I can't wait for it to arrive, probably next Tuesday now....pics to follow.

    Should be a bit of a contrast to my avatar Tele. :)

    I missed this post earlier. Looking on the Embie site, I don't see the base offered in any other material besides plastic. Where'd you get the aluminum one?

    I replaced the stock Melita on my 2013 6128 with a Compton chambered aluminum. Can't see going back, actually, because of the palm muting and simplicity, but it's always nice to have options. The plastic base on the stock Melita was a total non-starter, though.
