I have quite a few

1957 Les Paul Junior
2008 Gretsch 6120
1953 ES-295
Fender tele historic thingy - 1952 spec. Swapped for a dodgy amp - got lucky there!
SG-X - my first new gibson. Wonderful beast!
Gibson 335 - bought in USA. It's a beaut!
Ricky 330
Epihone Coronet (pre Gibson)
Guild S-60
Les Paul Special (duuno what year)

Plus some acoustics here and there and a Japanese fender precision bass

Amps - Laney 50, Blackstar 20, VOXAC30, lots of little amp things Z-Vex Nano head. That's good fun. A few pedals, mainly overrives and delays/chorus.

Basically, anything to make a racket.

Collecetd over the years, I should sell some off now I donlt gig and record but I like 'em!

Over the years I have had all sorts - I've been lucky!

How do you find the Gretsch? I've been toying with taking the plunge on one for a while. I want each of my guitars to bring em something different and I get that from my Tele and Rick copy, will the Gretsch fulfill this?
Shove it up yer bollocks then!

It's fantastic. Don't buy an electromatic one. Chinese made, they are built well but not the same. souless
My mate has a 50's one. Real deal. Mine is very different but, as he said, has it's own expression and feel. I can get somelovely warm feedback from it and it's really nicely weighted. And it puts out a fearsome roar when cranked up. You can get the soft acoustic vibe, but a nice rip when needed. Good luck!

Ah, you've sold it well to me there. Think I'll take the plunge soon enough. Sounds nice and versatile!
