My First Gretsch guitar, third piece of Gretsch gear after an amp and a sound hole pickup.

Gretsch G2210 Streamliner Jet Junior Club in Golddust, Indonesia-built
Broad'Tron pickups
Bolt on nato neck
Nato body

I have it paired here with the Gretsch Electromatic, a pawn shop find. I've only given it a brief trial with an AmPlug at the store, but it definitely has balls. The pups are wound a bit higher than a FilterTron. More power, less definition, according to Gretsch.







7.8 lbs, no sharp frets, slim-ish neck. If no hard edge on the black neck binding means it's been rolled, that's pretty good for a $300 US guitar.

There's just something about gretsch guitars. Nothing else really sounds like them.

I had a my2 (the previous Malcolm young model made from the late 90s to the early/mid 2000s that I stupidly traded away.

After I buy another Les Paul or two, I'm gonna finally get that white falcon I've always wanted.
