    Very nice, congrats!
    But I don't see a lot of tele in it, it may not be the real father :)

    Never trust an LP, they'll break your heart every time.

    Gretsch guitars are addictive, one leads to another, then another etc. :)

    I absolutely love my Gretsch. totally agree on the tele + LP. I've mildly gassed for one with dyna's, but not sure if I'll love them or hate them.

    Thank-you everyone! I love the blacktops too. Never been a big humbucker fan but these are unique for sure. Not as high output as I expected, but enough. Sounds splendid with overdrive.

    HNGD !

    I have a Double Jet also,
    the chambered body really lightens the git up and allows the git to resonate better unplugged

    That looks like (Far left) the White Douglas I sold. IT was a purty guitar for sure!


    Kraftwerk - Enjoy your new Gretsch. The BlackTop Filtertrons are great!!!
