    I already have a couple of Gretsch guitars but I obtained this in a trade today and I have to say I am very impressed...

    All hail the Electromatic CB joining your existing lot of Gretschen!

    Great all-around rock and roll guitars, just add a silver G6119 pickguard and the look is complete ;)

    I think most people who like Teles tend to like blacktop filtertrons. Almost like they're the humbucker brother from another mother to the Tele single coils. Love my Pro Jet with those pups.

    Great looking guitar!

    Nice axe! I've got the 5622 and those Hilotrons are great pups as well as the filters.

    Ace work and great to see that the pickup spacing is a 1:1 exchange with the new guard.

    No trouble that the guitar s a brighter shade of red, the silver guard blends with the nickel chrome quite nicely and I'm sure the whole package looks fantastic under darker lighting as well. hint-hint-snicker-snicker
