1 Brian_66 2 years ago I acquired my BZ by circumstances of fate. I was a brand new guitar player just scratching the surface of the world of Gretsch. When I first saw this guitar in Nashville, I didn't know what it was or who X was. And I know there are some fine guitar players out there that were, or probably still are, shaking their heads that this guitar is in my hands. But here's the deal. I can play it MUCH better than when I first started. And I often go and try other pro line Gretsch guitars and, with the exception of a 6119HT, none of them came close to feeling or sounding good as the BZ. Maybe that's just a personal preference at this point. Another affirmation that the BZ may be the "grail" guitar was when another Silver Jet owner tried it at the recent Gretsch Round Up and commented on how nice the neck was compared to his MIJ neck. I would have never known that! So anyway, this BZ guitar is still in the hands of someone who doesn't understand it's true value and plays it no where near its potential. I thought about selling it to some of the GDP folks here who could better appreciate it or put it to better use. I've tried out for 5 different bands since I acquired this guitar and got rejected by all of them. But here's the deal, I really enjoy playing this guitar in the closet when nobody can hear me but me and my maker. So between that, and the occasional Gretsch Round Up, I'd say I'm playing this guitar as well as I can and hopefully getting better.
