Played Ricks since 87, bought my first Gretsch
this year, a G5420T, made in Taiwan, but
superbly built and not far from the Japanese
expensive versions, mind you if I was paying
Japanese Gretsch money I'd be buying a Rickenbacker!!

No where near as nice to play as my 88 340
but good fun and a relatively cheap dip in the
water.

Seeing as we've revived this thread... slightly!... I'll just point out that 'that guy' Kevin Shields played Fender Jazzmasters primarily with a bit of Jaguar.
Um... my band
The Type Five
And some tunes here:

He used to get one out during live shows in the later decades for one song or so. It can be seen on the live DVDs from the noughties.
