Modern Gretsch Guitars

New Gretsch owner

1

Hi. I'm a newbie in the Gretsch world - led astray by Hoot Owl. He's been telling me for YEARS that I should sip the Orange Kool-Aid, and I finally did. Found a 2006 G-5120 on Reverb.com and bit the bullet. It now takes its place with my Martin SPDC16TR, Ovation, Fender Tele, SG, Godin Radiator and Goya Classic in my "I love it" stable. Hope to meet y'all sometime. Soddydoc (in Tennessee).

Congrats on a great start to all things Gretsch! Post pics when you can, we love to see'em. And welcome to the GDP, a far-flung family of shameless enablers.

I didn't have to try too hard! The Gretsch magic sold itself!

Nice guitar! I used to have a clear guard 5120 too. I like the clear guards the best. I only sold it because one of my friends really bonded with it.

Oh, no. You mean I’m now on a quest for more? Great!

Be careful! It's not just Gretsch, it can be guitars in general, I once had a stable of 26, but I'm much better now!
