    Gretsch and Bigsby

    I think the players editions having tension bars I kinda get. Modern Pro level work horse instrument an all that. But the rest of the Proline I'm not having them. On the BroadKaster I had the tension bar was set further back so the string break was much better, but that and the frankly odd BT...

    Gauging the "Jet-Set"

    So I whipped the 10s off the Jet and put 11-48s on. For me it's so much better. It feels and plays superbly now, the slinkiness is gone and the bending is more controllable. Chords and arpeggios all sounding tighter. It seems perfectly set up for running 11s...which makes me even more surprised...

    GAS - am i ok?

    I have no GAS, zero...none, nothing. No GAS for anything. Not guitars, amps, pedals, strings...nothing. It's very very odd. Anyone care to help me regain my former affliction? I'm losing my mind not wanting anything.

    Relic'ing...

    This. Plus... when inflation makes people desperate, and the thieves break into my house, they are going to take all my pristine cheap guitars and leave all my "battered old" relics (worth thousands more money) behind ;):cool:

    Before I sold half my collection to pay for my Stern CS I seemed to have acquired 4 Blue guitars in under 6 months...sadly 2 have left. There is something cool about blue

    Gauging the "Jet-Set"

    I've only ever used a wound G on Jazzmasters, and that was to cure tuning issues. On the Jazzmaster with 11s the wound G really was nice.

    Gauging the "Jet-Set"

    Well this is unexpected. Lots of you surprising me with your 10s or lower. it's making me wonder if perhaps I just need to get used to them I'll probably pop some 11s on this weekend...give it a quick try out, but you've all given me a little more confidence in 10s being acceptable. Everyone's...

    Gauging the "Jet-Set"

    So my Power Jet always had 11's on it, I could play hard, it stayed nicely in tune and it had just the right amount of resistance. It was spot on. My Duo Jet arrived from the CS with 10s...and wow is it different. It feels so slinky, I'm over bending everywhere and it just doesn't feel a good...

    Custom Shop Lead Times

    Well... I bought it knowing I'd have to either sell it (if I wasn't convinced) or sell a number of guitars to pay for it. I've just done a deal for a number of guitars, so yes it was worth it. It's hard to describe it...it's just not like other Gretsches I've played. It's a thoroughly enjoyable...

    Custom Shop Lead Times

    This CS '59 took 2 and a half years. Luckily the shop knew I wanted it two and a half years ago... ordered it without my knowledge, then waited for me to see it on their website, and buy it 😀

    Why Are You Here?

    I came here to be encouraged to buy things I never knew I needed, by the nicest bunch of commited enablers on the internet. You've all cost me a fortune

    How Do I Find Out The # Of Limited Edition Gretsch Guitars Made?

    I did the same when I bought the BroadKaster at Christmas. Gretsch confirmed their were 6. Sadly...it lasted a week with me.
