Long time lurker and refugee from the now defunct Gretsch Pages. Been playing off and on for 50 years. Came from mostly playing Martins but I'm a bender and my old hands can't take bending 13's anymore. First wanted a Gretsch after seeing Billy Zoom with his Sliver Jet playing with "X" in L.A. back in the 70"s. Bought a Brian Setzer Hot Rod couple years back but didn't like the 9.5" fingerboard radius (LOVED everything else and the TV Jones classic PU's) sold it and now I have this. 2013 G6119 Chet Atkins '59 Re-issue. I freaking love it ! Anyway... tons of great info here and I'm glad to finally jump in the water with all of you.
