Modern Gretsch Guitars

NGD — Didn’t see this one coming

1

Well, it was just a swap. A friend called round, knowing I had two Squire CV Teles but really only played one of them. He had an Electromatic Double Jet he didn't use, but he wanted a Tele. So that was that. And it even came with a proper Gretsch case.

I know that by Gretsch standards the Double Jets/ Pro Jets are 'modest' guitars, but if everything works OK then they are a lot of fun. On this one, everything seems fine (even the pots). The Blacktops sound pretty decent and a bit of Bigsby wiggling doesn't send things out of tune. I don't really like the chrome pickup surrounds, and I'm wondering if Paul Setzer has to hand a nicer pickguard than the stock flimsy pearly thing. Otherwise I'm happy with it and I'll take it along to our first band gig of 2018 next week.
