    New vs. 'old' models?

    I have a 2016 G2622 and have played the new Streamliners. I’ll stick with mine. The new ones are good, but to my ears the older Streamliners sound better. I can’t get a bad sound out of mine! Considering I’m a hack, that speaks volumes!

    G2622T pickup change

    I have a 2623, and there is no way I’ll trade out the Broadtrons. With a little adjusting they go from good to great! I get fantastic tones from them! I can’t understand how people just change them out and not really get to know them. No judgement.

    When did they stop making 5120's

    I may be weird, but I love the Gretschbuckers in mine. A little tweaking and man they sound amazing! Only mid I’ve done was change out the Rattle’omatic bridge for a Compton Stainless steel bridge.

    Gretsch-Buckers - What's wrong with them

    I love the Gretschbuckers in my 5120. The only mod I’ve made to mine is to change out the noise omatic bridge for a stainless steel Compton bridge. Man it sings!

    G5435 drop in tuner replacements?

    Hey all! I have a G5435 Pro Jet in Fairlane Blue. I was wondering if there are any good drop in locking tuners you guys would recommend? I love this guitar, but the tuners are it’s weak point if you ask me. Thanks much!

    Electromatic models made in China - your impressions?

    I’ll say this, my 5343 in Fairlane Blue is the bomb! Sounds killer looks amazing under stage lights and weight the right amount! I’m so glad my wife got it for me as a gift. It is superb in every aspect!

    Was it a GreTsch Christmas in your house?

    I love GreTsch guitars! Well, 2 years ago my wife bought me a 2622 Streamliner which is awesome as is! The only issue were the tuners! Well, under the tree we’re a set of Grover licking tuners and this amazing book about our beloved guitars! Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

    Why no GreTsch Bass threads???

    I’m both a guitarist and bassist. I have several Gretsch guitars and a GreTsch Jr Jet II Bass. Why don’t I see any bass threads? I’ll say this my Jet is an amazing bass! Worth far more than the price charged! New bass will be the G5440LSB!

    Gretsch Obsession?

    Well, here’s my story. I’ve played guitar for over 40 years. I’ve had Fenders, Gibson’s, you name it! Lately, I’ve grown more and more attached to my Gretsches. It’s become a point where I don’t play any of my guitars unless they are my Gretsches. From my Projet to my Electromatic to my...
