I recently traded my Eastman Grand Auditorium acoustic for an electric acoustic Jumbo — a Rancher by Gretsch (the bright orange one on the right). Yes, I quite like Gretsches. You can blame Chet Atkins and George Harrison for setting me on the path, and my friend Chris for lending me a couple of his to record the Wednesday Child album with. After that, I had to have one. This makes number four, which means half of the instruments in my toolbox are now Gretsches. It also means that my beloved Yamaha Dreadnought (on the left) is now the small acoustic.
