Howdy! This is my newest Gretsch, joining my Americana acoustic, Traveling Wilburys and my crown jewel, the Tennessee Rose. This one's a Junior Jet II, brand new from Music 123. I'll get a pic later, but it also has a nifty Gretsch 125th Annie emblem on the back of the headstock!

She plays great, sounds great, and I've already diced and decaled her. Dice knobs are new from a place on ebay, and the decal is from the fine folks at the Nature's Miracle store on ebay.

Hope you like it!

Hey Raveoned

Very cool!!! What's the sound like compared to the Hollow Body? Why is it called a Junior Jet?

Nice guitar! I have been thinking about adding a solid-body Gretsch to my arsenal, but I don't know how they stack up against other of the same type. Ideally I would like a Black Penguin to match my Black Falcon.

Thank for the compliments, folks!

pony, the sound is a little less warm than a hollow body (this even sounds a bit more biting than my Strat), but still has a good bit of classic twang to it.

I think they named this the Junior Jet, because its just a no-frills, not decorated, straight up Rock 'N Roll guitar, as opposed to a Jet Pro or Duo Jet, which have some binding and extras to them.

This, along with the single pickup Junior, are the lowest-priced Gretsches. But, I love it! I thought of getting it originally to have a Gretsch to take anywhere without fear (the Tenny only goes along to certain places), but I like it more than I planned it to be used for. It just feels and sounds good.

BTW, pony, besides a 1957 Chevy, a 1964 1/2 or 1965 Mustang is my favorite car ever!
