1 gretschcrush 2 years ago There has been some discussion on neck resets and if they devalue or enhance your Gretsch. In my view these guitars require constant maintenace to stay active. What we have here are basically antiques. In another few years none of the people who made these guitars will be alive or the original wave of players either. I see it as an honour to have owned and maintained these guitars as at the end of the day we are all just custodians of these instruments. Play and enjoy them without a doubt but you have to make sure they are playable as best you can or they just become redundant. Nothing sadder than a guitar that is not played because it was not given a neck re set because the owner wants it to be 100% original. If you are not prepared to spend a bit of money on keeping them playing then buy a new one.
