Modern Gretsch Guitars

Darrel Higham on his Gretsch Custom Shop 5170

Be good to see more of that master class at Dingwalls in Camden but there’s nothing on YouTube. Guess they banned footage to keep it special, Fair nough

Thanks, blueflame.

This popped up right after watching that:-

Dingwall's in Camden! Looked nothing like that when I went there in the 90s.... Nice guitar!

A bigger Club sized guitar with a 24.6" neck is a very good idea.

And in concert, that guitar sounds great! Of course, just about ANY guitar would sound good in his hands. They featured Darrel and that guitar in Bacon’s updated Gretsch book, but I guess Fender/Gretsch decided to not go into production with it. Sad. I think it would be as good a seller as some of the Hot Rods!

That guitar that was intended for Jeff Beck is a great looking guitar.

I’m not a fan of relics, but 6120s look so much better without the overly glossy poly and the garish gold hardware.

Please note: Not the same guitar in post #1 and 4. The CS Gretsch in the OP is what he says: A 6120 with a 17" body and a Falcon headstock. Darrel's quite a big fella.
