1 Mr_Christopher 9 months ago A few months ago I was babbling here about how my 6119 had become my dream guitar and all the others got no love. Then I thought why not trade the extra Strat Ive owned for 20 years and never bonded with for a 5420. Then I played one and that wide neck tripped me out bad. But I decided to visit the guitar at the shop once a week to see if I could warm up to that chunky neck. Two visits later and I owned that sucker, but there’s more! I have not put my 5420 down since I bought it, chunky neck and all. I have not been this inspired in decades. I’ve already put a set of songs together that I’m rehearsing with my fav bass player and once we’re solid we’ll work the drummer in.Im using 11s and only playing songs that work on this guitar, a couple of songs call for my Tele, but everything thing else on the gretsch. And we don’t need no singer so all the songs are ones that are fun to play and sound great on the Gretsch. I’m no Duane Eddy but this guitar can sizzle without a singer in the bandAnd my 6119 weeps but understands. Anyhow, I am so into this guitar. I added a Tru Arc and Ive done all the pick up tricks yet eventually I see replacing the pickups.
