1 Woollymonster 8 months ago Just got my first Gretsch, an awesome Stephen Stern Duo Jet from Wildwood Guitars. I guess I never paid much attention to the fretboard/body joint on the few Gretsch guitars that I have played in shops over the years but;Is there supposed to be a gap between the fretboard and the body? I mean it is like a quarter inch. I cant imagine that this would be a mistake coming from the Custom Shop. Excellent playing and sounding guitar by the way! Love it. Sorry for the dumb question.
