Thank you for the input guys!
I had the fever until I got the cure...
Gretsch Falcon... Black or white ... only way to go!
A 6120 is my bucket list axe.
I think the 5120 is great for the $$$. I got one at GC using a 15% off coupon. I've owned it for about 6 months and last night I just ordered some TV Jones pickups for it. (TV Jones Classic neck, and Classic Plus for the bridge.)
The top of the line ones aren't really terribly expensive either in the grand scheme of things.
I absolutely love my G6196T Country Club! I'm thinking about picking up a G5135 CVT.
The new Pro Jet is just coming out, with Filtertron pickups and vintage controls. The better pickups are a plus. I don't like the vintage controls (to many knobs). I front a rockabilly group, do the vocals and all the guitar. I like the simple single volume and tone controls. I also liked thicker necks. After an Electromatic, Historic Series and Pro Line, I switched to PRS Starla's.
Now I'm having SERIOUS GAS with this one!
Gretsch GAS is like no other! and yes, drolling is right, the Electromatics are perfect gateway guitars.
disclosure: I have one nicely modded up for grabs in the emporium btw. Moving it to step up!
There's nothing like a Gretsch
This is my fav pic of my fav guitar
Thanks! I did a lot of work to get that amp looking and sounding like it should here it is before:

I have a 1964 Double Anniversary and a 1979 Country Club.
If you're in the market, I'm selling a 2004 Gretsch 6120 in the classic western orange.
The 6120 Junior is one of those guitars I wish I'd never sold. The full sized 6120 is just a bit too big for me (being 5' 7"), I could play it for a while but as soon as I'd strap on a 335 or solid body Tele/Strat/Jazzy/whatever I could FEEL my shoulders and back thank for for the easier position. Not so with the Jr, it fit me perfect and I had a really nice one that I sold in a fit of Vintage Gretsch GAS! These Juniors are a series of "not vintage correct" Gretsch's that Fender/FMIC should really consider reissuing. Hang onto that bugger...
Gretschs rule, just educate yourself, play a bunch and pick your poison and flavor and get rocking!
I've been trying to sell a Les Paul goldtop to finance a GreTscH 6120 for about a month now...it's killing me!
Love the Gretsches!
Cool I'll check it out.
