1 fistpicker 10 months ago Hi there. New guy from Oregon here. Not a current Gretsch owner (had a beater Corvette for a few months in the early 90's when they were really cheap) but am currently shopping for something in the Jet style. I have been looking for a guitar forum to join and after lurking for a while, this one seems to have a laid back attitude that I enjoy.I modify every piece of gear that passes through my hands and am attempting to get back into amp building after a dozen years away from it. I am a welder, fabricator and machinist in an auto restoration shop.Nice to meet you all.
