Those MIJ guitars and their pickups. Some of those guitars were built very good and some weren't worth buying. The pickups were good most of the time. The Goldfoils and the large and tall single coils with screw poles were fantastic.

Andries,have you ever heard the cones offered by Stewmac? They’re really good, very well made. I know, another American company, sorry I don’t know a lot of european vendors :D

The Gretsch is inport for us so +200 euro's exstra for the ampli-sonic, while china is far more far away is tree times cheaper? TRADE WAR ? GRETSCH Most famous here for the big arch tops Rockebilly style, still the best! but Pricy! most cones are all the same allthow there is a new type cone on the market sold as a National cone whit bridge as new handspun exstra thin,about 60,  euro popular makes priceworthy demand , till the price goes up, Vintage bissenis  is still booming, all thow the real cream of the cream is still not availeble!!

He was constantly changing out pickups and then just used the one bridge pickup ultimately.

The search for perfect tone can lead one down a lot of rabbit holes. ;)

Price is pretty high, but he did that to all his guitars?

Comment by Paul Craig on December 17, 2018 at 12:38pm

Red Sparkle would be nice.

I can't get over Gretsch offering the Malcolm Young model with 2 empty pickup cavities at a insane price. Can't help but feel like someone's getting cheated.

Kool, mine was a sparkle, vintage tho

Comment by Paul Craig on December 17, 2018 at 12:16pm

Gretsch makes great guitars too.

I've always wanted a Gretsch Jet Firebird.
