Modern Gretsch Guitars

Apropos of nothing - Diddley G6138

1

Apropos of nothing, I really think the Diddley G6138 would look better with chrome hardware vs gold.

2

The Electromatic version is chrome. I actually like the gold.

3

Truth be told, I've wanted one for years. Maybe some day I'll finally get myself one.

Or maybe I'll get a 6122-1959 Country Gent...or BOTH!

I have lectro Bo and love it.

5

Everyone (even the skeptics) like Munman's Bo once they play it.

6

I prefer the chrome as well... and modding the Electromatic version really isn't that difficult.

it's easy to made a cutaway on this one ?

ha-ha... actually, the upper fret reach on this model is surprisingly good, thanks to a thin neck-heel. I've never needed a cutaway on it.

Giffenf, Thanks for the lead. I got more details on that used Diddley. It has more wear than I'm looking for but thanks for the heads up!

The neck on my 6138 is the thicker then any other Gretsch I have tried, but still one of my favourite Gretsches!
