    I'm in...

    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.

    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.

    [​IMG]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.:rolleyes: I should have kept it.
    [​IMG] 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!
    [​IMG] 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.
