1 RichB555 1 year ago Hi Dan, I read in your book that you don't have a high regard for the Monkees, but several of us are fans of the guitars they played. Do you have any recollection or memories of the guitars that were made for the TV show coming through the factory assembly line and your quality control desk? Do you have any insights you could share as to why Gretsch chose to make a 17" natural finish model 6076 12 string for Mike Nesmith? Why the shark fin inlays on Nesmith's 12 string instead of the neoclassic thumb print inlays? From the Gretsch guitars shown on the TV series, these would have included a Viking, 6076 12 string, and a red Monkees model for Nesmith, a bass for Peter Tork and a Double Anniversary for Davy Jones. Thanks again for being here, Dan!
