Modern Gretsch Guitars

PSA: Anyone looking for a Gent Jr / 6122JR?


I have nothing whatever to do with this, just scrolling through ads on GearPages for a Strandberg Boden 8, and this caught my attention.

These are rare birds, and rarely come up for sale. Everyone who has a Jr (Gent, Falcon, Anni, 6120) seems to love it.

No idea if it's still available, but I'd say probably.

As an aside, it's modestly interesting to see what GearPagers are buying, selling, and trading. The great bulk, unsurprisingly, is Fender and Gibson, toward the high end - and not so much vintage. After that, PRS, Collings, and an assortment of high-end copycloneboutiquers. Gretsch is in the mix, but turned down. Still, it's louder than Duesenberg aind Reverend (I've seen only a couple). NO Rickenbackers yet (and I'm up to page 55 of 69).

I don't know what any that means, but it's hard not to notice that a lot of corks are sniffed on the GDP, by noses turned proudly up.
