Eric, if you happen to read this post, I'd like to suggest a guitar and amp to try. I see that you like your Gretsch DuoJet. I had one too, but I traded and got a Gretsch Elliot Easton Jet. Black with gold hardware. Beautiful instrument. It has Gretsch FilterTron pickups rather than the single coil Dynasonics. I did swap them out for Tom Jones Classic FilterTrons. Beautiful!! Now........have you tried out the VOX Valvetronics amps? I've got an AD120VTH sitting on top of an AD212 cabinet that is in the familiar trolley stand. Wonderful combination. I'm sure that you would really appreciate it!!
