I fortunately or unfortunately live about 15 min. from Wildwood Guitars in CO. Over the years I have spent to much time and money there. Great shop and great people for sure.

On a recent trip there I had occasion to play a Gretsch 1959 Country Gent. Wow what a guitar the only way I can think to describe the sound is Hi-Fi. Build quality is excellent.

After some thought and consideration I pulled the trigger, brought it home this morning. I'm smitten.

Will post pics as soon as I get time to take them, in the meantime here is a factory shot.

That's an amazing guitar. I've seen them in the vidoes from WW and just drool. Of course Greg K. has something to do with that.
