1 Viper 2 weeks ago A few years back a young fiddler I know asked me to play lead guitar in a honky-tonk country band he was putting together. Most of the time I’ve used a TV equipped 5120 with a Tru-Arc as an alternative to the Teles used by so many country players.Awhile ago I found a low priced 6120 LTV that I figured would be my top choice for this band. To my surprise, I don’t feel at all comfortable with the 6120. I kept taking it to gigs and wondering why. I finally realized the difference between the new Gretsch and every other guitar I own—I’m always aware of the presence of the frets on the 6120. Over the weekend I used the 5120 for a long bar gig. It played like butter compared to the 6120. Passages that are a struggle on the 6120 were a snap on the cheaper axe. I suppose I could have my repair guy work the frets over on the 6120, but it crossed my mind that the new guitar should just go away. Has anyone else had this experience, or is it just me?
