Long story short, I got a Tele instead of a Gretsch Jet/Penguin. Long story, I tried to get a Gretsch White Falcon, went into a shop, grabbed the Falcon, played it, and for some reason I was very, very disappointed with the guitar. I mean... it sounded good, but for some reason I just didn't... want it? I was so determined to buy it and I had all my cash ready but at the end I didn't make a decision and left the shop with my hands empty. Then I realized, maybe a hollow body guitar isn't just right for me. I wanted a White Falcon because of how cool it looked but I didn't really like it... so why not try to solid body version, which is, a Penguin? But I tried so hard to find a Penguin but at the end I just couldn't get my hands on a Penguin, and there was a local Gretsch distributor who was willing to sell me a Penguin for around $6,000 if I pay 10% upfront and to never question anything and buy it when the product arrives. Now, I'm not a very careful person, or take huge caution while I make purchases, but I don't feel comfortable when I buy a guitar that I haven't played. But I preordered it anyway, and of course, my worries did not go away and I eventually cancelled my preorder and had to fight for my deposit back. After that whole fiasco, I bought a Tele that I wanted, and now here I am, wondering if things would've been different if I bought the Gretsch instead of the Tele? Are there any Tele owners who have a Gretsch solid body guitar? If you do, do you think it is good to have one with the Tele? And also, do you think it's worth the money you paid for? For a Made in Japan guitar, these things are pretty pricey IMO. The guitar I was ultimately thinking of getting was this: https://www.gretschguitars.com/gear...tage-select-57-duo-jet-with-bigsby/2401612846 The reason why I'm asking this question in a TDPRI forum is that I would get heavily biased answers if I would ask the same question from a Gretsch guitar forum, and I would like to avoid that.
