    Well that is mighty low of you, but the Gretsch Kingdom will welcome anyone so I'm sure they'll give you a pass.

    I swear it’s not mine Officer!

    I’m looking after the RIC for a friend. I would like to add one some day though. The thin string spacing is a bit different to get used to every time I pick it up but the tone is really cool.

    The Falcon is my favourite and not just because it’s such a work of art to look at. I love the tone post and Dynas (TV Jones T Armonds).

    I played an Annie with TV’s HiloTron style a few weeks back and loved those too. Keen to put some in my Annie when I can.

    I had a 5127 which is the blue version of the 5129. Great guitar. I have self-banished myself from Gretsch land having sold two of them to fund
    other purchases (bicycle). I am sort of still in the Gretsch family because I still have a Guild DeArmond M75T which has the same Dynas in it and
    sounds great. It's a heavy guitar but it works better for me live because being a solid body I don't have to worry as much about feedback issues.
    Sometimes if I stood at the wrong angle to the amp I could get a wicked hollow body "howl" going which is not your typical feedback. Manageable but
    definitely something that had to be watched out for.

    Here's one of mine. I also have a rancher falcon. I'll be posting pictures and questions about a '67 or 68 country gentleman that's heading my way that's in rough shape. It needs new binding and a lot of TLC.

    I've had a G2420 for a month or two, and acquired a G5230T two days ago...I really like them and plan to purchase another when I get some more $$$s together. I would love a Seltzer, but will likely keep it under $1000usd.

    Edit: SETZER! Duoh!

    If you need a Seltzer that bad I'm sure you can get some from your doctor @stormsedge :D

    I'm a little terrified about it. The end result should be awesome. I saw a picture of a refinished country gent in black. It was pretty sweet looking. It's already a basket case so I might as well go for it.

    New addition, my G5622T (2nd gen MIK).

    Super Hilotrons are sweet sounding pickups, low output humbuckers. I pulled the neck position apart, and it’s basically a Blacktop Filtertron with tall nail-shaped pole slugs on one coil. Same 1/8” tall Alnico magnets. It’s clanky, bright, and now kinda rare—keeping mine, though I plan on trying a Curtis Novak humbucking Hilotron.

    Got lucky enough to score a G5135 Corvette about two months ago. Sounds different from anything else in the house, fun to play.

    I just noticed that I'd not posted my finish G2622 or my G5420T and since some of my other models have been sold I thought In would repost my current Collection.
