Eek.

I have a rubbish, ancient iPhone 5 with only 8Gb storage and the itrack is only compatible with iphones having 16Gb or more.


Looks like it's a return to store then.
Ah well.

Mine came late afternoon, it works quite well - well worth the punt!
Only drawback is that it’s a battery eater, will be charging phone several times a day 😬
My singing sucks so I’m learning Guitar and Ukulele, it’s fun 🌟

Do you know when you intend to not go into the guitar store because you don't need anything?

It didn't work out for me.

At all.

So here's my new Gretsch G5620T-CB Electromatic in Georgia Green.

Beautiful! Dig the Bigsby. Hey, let's start a Gretsch members club!
I love my "V-Stoptail" G2622:

Thanks y'all! Been giving her lots of love. The pickups sound great and they're very different from each other and what I already had in other guitars. The neck pickup is quite subdued in a good way and the bridge pickup is twangy and peaky. Sounds amazing with overdrive from my Fulltone OCD. Very chunky. I will experiment more with my King Of Tone soon since that's bound to be interesting as well.

Beautiful! Dig the Bigsby. Hey, let's start a Gretsch members club!

Sweet! Did you specifically go for the center block version? Do you intend to change the pickups? I didn't want anything specific, I just figured this was by far the best I could get my hands on so I went with it. I wasn't sure about the Bigsby at first, but after some graphite rubbing it's quite stable and a little less laborious than the Floyd Rose on my PRS. Very different of course, but they're still both trem systems! :D

We should definitely start an owners club. I know Lieven would be thrilled as well. ;)

It's always sad to have to let go of an instrument you love. That's why I only ever sold one, which was a bass I picked up in an auction but didn't particularly care for. I sold it to finance the G&L Tribute L-2000 bass I really, really wanted, now have and love.

Picked up a Boss Acoustic Singer Live acoustic amp. Pretty nice, and I like that I can hook the foot controller I already own (from my Katana) up to it. I'm impressed with it, so far.

Thank you! Beautiful? No doubt about that. Beast? Maybe not immediately visible unless you've played hollow body guitars, it's quite big for an electric. It's a thinline though, so it isn't as deep. It's heavy, too! But not as heavy as my banjo.

I remember those! I have like three of them! :D

Okay maybe not, I have one original (SN-2) and two of the newer Super-Tight ones.

ah yes Gretsches; love 'em :D

I just bought a secondhand Digitech Trio+ for fun, for improvising and jamming and perhaps even some songwriting
