    Howdy guys & gals,
    Long time lurker here. I posted a few times years ago but never introduced myself, so here I am. I'm introducing myself now as I think I'm going to be here more often. I mostly play a modified Gretsch 6120 but I've really been falling back in love with my '94 Standard. I played LPs for ages before getting the Gretsch and lately I'm thinking I'll tell the "rockabilly police" to go sit on it and just use my LP.

    She's been resprayed from clown-burst to a kind of bourbon-burst, has a SD Jazz/JB set. As I've started seriously looking at making her my main axe I've been diving down the pickup rabbit hole, especially in terms of magnets. Looking at buying a bunch of magnets and doing some swapsies to try and get a more vintage british blues tone from them. I think the JB will be too hot and might have to be swapped completely, but maybe the jazz can stay with an A2 or A3 swap? Anyhoo, hopefully I'll be getting to know you all a bit better on the journey. Just watched Joe Bonamassas' Muddy Wolf DVD and quite inspired at the moment. Oh, P.S. residing on the Sunny Coast QLD, Aus.
    Cheers,
    Rob.

    welcome to the forum, Rob. make yourself at home and don't be a stranger.
    my first guitar was a '59 Gretsch Annie. still have it, too. so, there's nothing wrong with having a great hollowbody guitar. I also own a Les Paul. :D
