1 tonys145 2 weeks ago Long time Brian Setzer fan, I’ve often thought about buying a high end Gretsch but was scared off by the price. But I’ve wasted thousands buying and selling (at a loss of course) guitars that just couldn’t hold my interest past the initial excitement.Yesterday I played a 55 at a local store (I was dying to get out of the house and go play some guitars, I’m sure you can relate!) As I drove away I was aware that I felt kind of “buzzed” after playing that guitar. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that way before (and I’ve been playing 40+ years!) I thought hmm, this is interesting.Anyway even though I really liked that guitar I spent the evening researching different models (including the Setzers) I concluded the 59 has all the features I want. I have a Sweetwater gear card so I decided to mortgage the next 2 years for this “bucket list” guitar.So I thought I should go find a Gretsch forum to connect with kindred spirits who can help enable my gear addiction! I’m kind of a Jack of all trades guitarist who plays mostly jazz, blues and rock (though I’d like to learn Western Swing!) I’ve always loved 50s style rock and roll and I can’t wait to hear how everything I play sounds through this guitar! Any thoughts?
