New Gretsch, New Member

Hello everyone. Just bought a g5422 in white that I am falling in love with. Such creamy cleans and aggressive crunch all in one guitar. The only effects I use are the tc electronics Dark Matter, Hall of Fame Reverb and Flashback Delay into a 1974 Fender Vibro Champ. Tone monster. Thanks, John from the Great White North.

My Dad's 6119 circa 1962. I was 6 years old. I remember he sold it for $400 ! Tennessean Chet Atkins. Can anyone confirm the model number?

Congratulations! I love the 5422! It is the best of the Electromatic line and ranks as one of the best Gretsch guitars overall in my opinion. I love the way it sounds, feels and looks. I checked out video clips on the Gretsch website today and the 5422 was 1 of 3 of my favorite sounding guitars featured.

Happy new guitar day, and welcome to the best forum on the net!

I've got a few Gretsches, but I think my favorite is my new Fairlane blue 5420. They really knocked it out of the park with the new Electromatics.

Would that be Windsor ON by any chance? Just a wild guess.

Right on. Not much of a wild guess as there aren't a lot of cities outside of Ontario that I've ever run across with that name. Grew up there for the first 11 years.
