    6118 120 anniversary model

    With all the improvements made to the more recent 5420s, I decided to pass on a 20-year-old 6118 in so-so shape with a paint job I really didn’t care for (esp the back). Thanks for all your advice everyone. I’ll be going for a 5427 or a 5420. These new Electromatics are unbelievably good!

    5427 updates?

    I’ve been looking at the 5420s versus the 5427s. Just wondering if there are some updates from anyone on these. Love the tiger flame maple and the midnight sapphire with gold hardware of the 5427s, but I’m a little concerned about the new pick ups, and the 5420s do seem to have more thump for...

    6118 120 anniversary model

    Thanks Tele, sounds like you’re not a fan of the Mudswitch. Is it something that limits tone? Does it scare a lot of Gretsch folks off? Does this model have the string-thru bigsby’s?

    6118 120 anniversary model

    Sorry no link, does have definite wear, some pick scratches. I know now that the extra switch on the top side is a tone switch, therefore no tone adjt knob. Would the pick ups be the famed TV Jones? Some guidance appreciated!!😁😁

    Thanks all. I have a great Fisher acoustic amp. Are you suggesting I could use that for my Gretch dspellman ?? That’d save some $ and let me keep my Colling D1A ampd and keep a voice mic outlet. Because I was figuring I’d have to sell the fishman to afford an amp for the gretsch. Would love to...

    Looking for a nice clean sound amp to go with my new 5422 GT classic. Thinking of either a katana 50 or 100, a Roland blues cube, or a Roland JC 40 or JC 22. Any comments would be much appreciated. Sound is prob most important, but I would like the app to have the capability of inputting backing...
