My well worn '59 6118 in a grainy old picture from the 1980s:
I still gig with it once in a while.
I made a new wiring harness for it. I'm not completely happy with the bridge pup after a rewind several years ago, and am thinking of sending it in to TV for a look.
'62 Tennessean (the one they made the Tennessee Rose model after)
G6122-1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman
Gretsch Bono Irish Falcon
The Newest Addition
An '09 Falcon G6136T
Scottie, that's a tasty looking Annie. I had an '05, but sold it in a moment of weakness. Any chance we could see a more recent photo?
6120, 1960 Reissue.
Sold it about 5 years ago...I've regretted ever since...I knew I would too.
I've thought about selling it a few times over the years, but I'm not sure I ever will.
Double Anniversary. Don't know the year but it's older, not a reissue. Came to me with generic HBs. Currently with GFS Nashvilles.
I'll join. Here's my 2007 Electromatic G5122DC in black. I love this guitar!
I've been wanting a Gretsch ever since I saw this guy play one.
Just got this today....
Anybody got one of these? This is my G6118t 120th Anniversary, Most commonly referred to as a Bamboo Annie. One of the best colors ever put out by Gretsch. Stock TV Jones Classic pups included!
So whats the story on this? I'm not usually one for relics, but this looks....old. Did you do the work yourself?
NGD! Gretsch Pro Jet goldtop
Picked up this used Pro Jet goldtop today in very nice, barely used condition ~
Liking everything about it so far.. Great action and neck on this one!
I always wanted a Gretsch, now I've got one!
Here's my Corvette in a family portrait. Can anyone spot the mods?
MIJ fake Country Gent from the 70's that I had as a kid. I saw it in a music store years after I sold it, they were asking hundreds more for it than I had gotten when I sold it. I should have kept it.
the first "real" Gretsch I got. (68 "Rally") that I found on Ebay in the 90's, it was the ebay horror story guitar I shouldn't have bought, I spent 3X trying to get this guitar to just work as I would have just buying a real CG. Corroding binding, warped neck, dead electronics, bridge moved while playing it, etc. But hey, it's a REAL GRETSCH!
Early 00's Electromatic bass. Cheap electronics, warped neck, possibly made of plywood. Got scrapped out to fix my Hofner. I haven't had the best luck with Gretsches, but I'd still like to have one.
Ha... about 20 years ago I was in Tucson on business and saw a Gretsch bass in the Chicago store that caught my eye. It was actually pretty reasonably priced. I thought about it. If I hadn't been a broke brand-new father, and if I had known how to get a case-less bass from AZ to DC, it would have been my second Gretsch.
Here's my G5120 (first shown above) after adding Filtertrons and a Compton bridge...and rewiring.
I just drove past that store a couple hours ago!!!!
