Topic: NGD gone bad.

Last Friday, I bought a brand new Gretsch New Yorker Archtop. It sounds good. Great plugged into an amp. The action was really stiff. Not high. Really stiff. I brought it back to the store, the manager played it and agreed. I left it for the repairmen to look at. He said it was full of defects. Poorly set up and needed a lot of work. Gretsch is sending a new one and taking that one back. I know it happens. I have never bought a defective guitar before. (and I`ve bought a few). Hopefully, the next one will be ready to go from the factory.

I sold 4 pieces to get the Gretsch. I have 10 more pieces at the store on consignment. I am downsizing.

Do you have an ETA on the replacement??

That's not downsizing  - that's just making room for more!

No more after the Gretsch. A lot has changed in the past 2 months. I`m seeing things in a different light. If I do see an unbelievably good deal that I can make money on, maybe. No more just to have them. When all is said and done, I should have around 15 guitars. The Gretsch`s are staying. Along with the equipment I`ve had since I was young.Even the Gretsch`s may be iffy.

That sucks, but better than not getting a replacement ...
