Who is the handsomest man to sling a GreTscH?


The guitar:

– sascha

Ah, Mate it was just sold!


Did it actually sell?


Thanks, Tubs. How did I miss this? I wonder how much it went for.


I like the way Alex makes the Gretsch the classy guitar it should be.


I just noticed this topic, and never really checked it out before.

Don't be making fun of Paul Stanley. He may not be super handsome, but he's awesome.

The "Stanley-Gretsch" phase was just a short phase, aroused by a very mediocre ballad. Then again, all hard-rock ballads kind of blow.

Paul is secretly a handsome phantom!



As I am wont to do, I’ll champion a current player - I’ve always found Interpol’s Daniel Kessler to be easy on the eyes. Plus, they take the stage in suits. Always thought that added a message of professional pride to any musician’s presentation. Face it, give a good looking guy a guitar and a well tailored dark suit, and any of us would at least have a bit of a man crush.


I don't think I've ever seen Chris Isaak play a Gretsch. I don't doubt it - you can easily imagine him playing a Gretsch! Not sure how handsome he is either - I met him after a gig once and he was actually kinda funny looking. Don't get me wrong, I'm quite a fan and have seen him play a few times. He's a very funny guy, too.

So in an act of demonstrating sexual equality my vote goes to Poison Ivy. Best looking and coolest.

Chris hasn't been seen playing it for awhile but his leather covered Gent was everywhere during the early part of his career. Along with the J-200.


Well that photo does nothing to back up my argument, but Chris Isaak also understands the value of wearing a sharp suit when he plays.


Tossup between Duane and Eddie Cochran....


I hope I look this good when I'm 74.
