1 avenir 10 months ago New guy here.... Scored this yesterday, super nice condition, 2007 year. It's a MIRC guitar, so serial number digits (last 3) blanked out, USED stamp on back of headstock, and sticker covering the original serial #. But of no consequence, as she plays and sounds great. Spruce top as well. And obscenely low price to boot.I'm more of a jazz player with rockabilly tendencies... So this fits the bill perfectly! Favor tones and styles like early Wes, KB, and Pat Martino (e.g., El Hombre), Jim Hall, etc. This CC is fat warm and round with just a little extra treble bite -- awesome. Some jazzers won't even think about a Gretsch, man are they missing out!Sound is amazing once I swapped the Melita bridge for a Compton brass -- night and day in terms of tone and playability.... Just my own opinion here -- I don't get Synchrosonic bridges at all??? Anyone want it?Glad to be back in Gretsch land!
