    New Fender Day With Problems

    So in March Musicians Friend had a sale on Limited Edition Player Strats and Teles. I thought about it for approximately two weeks and ordered a Blueburst Strat and a case for it also. When I saw the case had been shipped but not the guitar, I knew there was going to be a problem. The case...

    Very belated NGD.

    Was taking pictures of my newest guitar and found the pictures of the last Gretsch on the camera. I couldn't figure out how to transfer from the iphone to my computer until just now. Bought this in August of 21. G2627 Streamliner in Shoreline Gold. Bought just to see how the triple pickups...

    Need speaker cab guidance.

    This last month I've been on an amp kick. I bought a used Vox AC10C1, new Fender Champion 100 and a new Marshall DSL20HR head. Now looking at the various Marshall Speaker Cabinets. Will be for home use only. I've narrowed it down to two choices. MX212AR for $449.99 which is a 2x12 vertical...

    ? 4 Firefly owners

    Recently received my FF338 and cannot find a serial number on the guitar. Does anyone have a serial number on theirs? No big deal but screws up my guitar spreadsheet.

    NGD - After shipping delays

    Ordered a Firefly FF338 after all the positive comments here. Ordered on the 6th and arrived on the 17th. Shipping involved wrapping cardboard around the HSC and applying a complete roll of wrapping tape. Took forever to get it unwrapped. I live in a rural area and have a sweetheart for a...

    Any G5024E Rancher, Dreadnought owners here?

    I'm thinking I need a Gretsch acoustic and love the looks of these. I live literally in the middle of nowhere so can't play one of these before purchase. Interested to know how it sounds unplugged. Have a Martin D-18 and do not expect the Gretsch to be equal but would like a decent sounding...

    Vintage Fender Amp Repair ?

    Any one have any experience with this company in Petaluma, California? Open to suggestions of other repair companies also. I have a Fender Super Twin Reverb 185w manufactured in 1979. I has never been serviced so it needs a total recap job for starters and a thorough test and inspection. Can...

    Recent NGD

    Finally bought a proline. Took a while to decide what I wanted but went with a G6120T-DCH-LTD. Was trying to get a G6119T players edition but Guitar Center wouldn't answer my emails. Found this at American Musical Supply with 12 payment 0% interest, so got it instead. Dark Cherry, aluminum...

    Bigsby code question.

    Just out of curiosity can anyone explain what the letter codes are after the model # of a Bigsby? Just received my new G6120-DCH-LTD and it came with a B6CBVF. C - Chrome B - ? V - Vintage ? F - Flat arm. It does not have a V-cut so I am guessing on the Vintage designation, I have no idea on...

    NGD Yesterday

    Spotted an ad on Facebook Marketplace from our little town. I know the woman that was selling her late husbands MIM Stratocaster. I also knew that she had had an amplifier for sale too. So I requested a price on the two items together. The amplifier she had left was a Peavey TNT 115 bass amp...

    Recent Purchase No. 3

    Been really liking the sound of my Squier CV 50's Telecaster and came upon this Fender Player Series Telecaster for a good price. Really like how it plays but the Squier sounds better to me. Think I'm done buying for a while.

    Anyone have or used a Boss ME 80

    The only pedal I have is the one that came with my Fender Super Twin Reverb. It only turns on/off the reverb, distortion and equalizer. ;) I only play for the family's enjoyment here at the house, but think it's time to experiment. I see good reviews on all the Boss pedals and I think for my...

    NA&GD for Grand-daughter

    Bought a Gretsch G5435 and Fender Champion 20 for her to learn on. Bought her a Yamaha acoustic to use in band at school last summer. She said she would practice more if she had an electric like Grandpa. I was surprised at the quality of it for the price paid. Notice I bought the proper OHSC...

    Just received my new Boss Katana 50 MK II. Fedex delivered it two days early according to the schedule they had posted. I'm a happy camper. Lots of settings to play with. Gave it a short workout and am very pleased. Photos show it sitting on top of my Fender Super Twin Reverb. Thanks for...

    New to me.

    Received my hardly used G5420T Aspen Green. Came with a OHSC, Compton bridge and strap locks. Needless to say I am thrilled and it joins a white G5422TG and black G5422G-12. I went from no Gretsch guitars in the beginning of September to three now. They are addicting. Photo of the newest and...

    New guy from Wyoming

    Hello everyone, new to the forum and Gretsch guitars. Been playing since 1961 for my own enjoyment. Had Gibson and Martin guitars but no Gretsch. Fixed that in September by ordering a G5422G-12 Black 12 string. After it arrived I knew I needed a 6 string, ordered a G5422TG Snow Crest White...
