Spent quite a bit of time in a local music store in the last couple days. When I was there yesterday I noticed that they had some Gretsches hanging around. I've been curious about Gretsches for quite some time but it's hard finding a dealer that stocks them. I've played a couple in the past but have never been able to plug one in. Imagine my surprise when I walk into the store and find a Setzer Sig, a Tennessee Rose, a Vintage Country Gentleman, and a few others. While my brother was wheelin and dealin I decided to forgo the Setzer(too much money for me to fall in love with, plus I really want a Horton Heat ssig)and I grabbed the 68 Rally and one of the Jets. The Jets were alright. The cheaper Electromatic actually sounded better than the real one but after strumming the first chord on the Rally my reaction was Holy crap does this guitar sound nice. It was so easy to dial in the kind of tones I'm always trying to but never can quite nail. The Rally I played looked exactly like this one Now what scares me is that I'm gonna go Gretsch crazy. These things are expensive.
