1 Matt Shanks 4 weeks ago I’m back in the Gretsch family. When I first joined Gretsch pages in ‘06 (14 years ago...wow) I wanted to find something to show my love and amazement for my ‘62 Tennessee rose. I had to sell that guitar to pay debt and have always thought it was the best guitar I ever owned, it was alive. Anyway I got my finances together many years ago and have bounced around and tried every type of guitar. Most of them were really good. I came to love Filtertrons so I bought a Tennessee Rose with Filtertrons...still love them, but there is something about this model with the sealed hollow body with Hilotrons. I thought they were too thin sounding, but they work so well in this guitar. There’s something that happens when you boost these low output pickups. I have some Filtertrons out of another Gretsch that I may someday try In this guitar but I think I’ll find that this unit works best with Hilotrons. Sorry for the ramble but I’m very excited. I just Bought a 2019 vintage select in perfect condition for an amazing price on Reverb. I knew I would be back with a Gretsch, I kept my tru-arc for that purpose. I’m so glad I decided to quit searching.
