I first saw this guitar in a store in Reno, Nevada. At the time, Gretsch guitars had only been back on the market for a few years and they were pretty scarce. I had never owned one before, but was smitten by the silver sparkle top on this one. I took it down and played it and loved it.

When I went home, I mentioned to my wife, whom I had married less than a year earlier, that I had seen the most amazing guitar and I described it to her. Unbeknownst to me, she contacted the store owner and bought it for me as a belated wedding gift to me. I was gobsmacked when I opened the box and saw what she had done for me.

WOW That’s awesome, 3 years later lol
