This year will be my 50th on our little blue planet and Mrs Buzzwagon, (Marion), has asked me what I'd like for my birthday. I've been GASsing for a Gretsch for ages but, as I'm sure you're all aware, the US made guitars are a small mortgage to buy over here so a Chet Atkins Country Gent it won't be but she's happy to buy me an Electromatic, (5120, 22, or if I get a lucky a second hand 5129).
My question is does anybody have any experience of Gretsch's? Beyond the fact that they're owned by Fender, Electromatics are made in Korea, look the mutts nuts, have a cracking tone and Brian Setzer and Chet play the top end stuff, I know nothing. So what do you know about the low end Gretsch's?
Any help would be great
