    Very cool! As a new Gretsch owner, I hope to see more around these parts.
    Hope your business is doing well.

    To some extent yes, but if you are looking for hard to find Gretsch parts check out Blackrider.

    Sounds like a great addition to your lineup. Do you have a "virtual" store up an running yet with your inventory?

    The Electromatic and most recently the newer Synchromatics are smart moves by Fred and Fender at keeping the brand alive and relevant. I don't know who is buying $2K plus guitars these day but folks want a piece of the iconic and Gretsch is definitely iconic. Gibson has been very successful with their Epiphone line but that Fugly headstock makes one always wish what if... And let's be honest how many of us wish our Fender Squier's didn't say Squier? I own a great playing and sounding Deluxe but...

    Gretsch IMHO has done a much better job than the other companies. Yup change a few components out on some and you have a fine instrument.

    What surprised me is the prices on the Gretsch guitars. You can get an Electromatic for $899.99!

    I'd have to agree on the Epiphone headstock they are way to tall but I love mine anyway.

    I'm not knocking Epi's by any means just their head stock. It looks great on guitars that it originally adorned (ie: 335/Casino types) but just looks odd on an LP and a few others. PLus as much as I liked some of my Epi's something (not really sure) was always missing. It wasn't the Gibby logo cuz I had (2) real ES-335's and just could not bond. But they really are a GREAT bang for the buck!

    The headstock is the reason I only own a single Epi (an Emperor 2, "Joe Pass" )
    They look like a canoe paddle to me.

    The Epi headstock is fine.
    I'd wager that if the Gibson and Epi headstocks had been swapped from the start everyone would instead say the Epi headstock was too short.

    I've got one of those G5422TDCGs and it's a great guitar. I really love that blue G5420T too.

    While this is correct, it doesn't change the fact that Epi headstocks are currently too long.
