Ooh nice. Wanted a Gretsch for years, but never taken the plunge. 

Age, and dare I ask, price?

Its brand new, just under £800

Its so nice, I've wanted one for about 2 years, cant wait to use it on stage.

Looks incredible for that money. It's great that they're making more affordable guitars. Have fun!

This is my axe (Les Paul Studio) had it for 6 months now, it sounds amazing, its just a bugger to play after 30 years of playing a strat

the strings seem too close together for me , i might be getting rid of it soon, dunno yet.

After playing a Strat for 30 years, it's probably a good job that you didn't buy a full-size hardwood Les Paul as they are so incredibly heavy. I borrowed one for a couple of weeks and ended up with a very sore back. No wonder Robert Fripp sits down to play his.

I am tone-deaf as well as properly deaf and have never played a guitar in my life (I picked one up once and made it go 'KLANGGGG'), but I have infinite respect for those who play.

The weight varies a lot, with 70s ones generally being the worst. You can get weight relieved ones with internal chambers, which are fine. It's the main reason I play an SG though. 

Robert Fripp plays a Fernandes LP for the sustainer - not sure how much that weighs.

I've had my Gordon Smith guitar since 1990. Bought new from a shop in Cheltenham. Always assumed these were still made near Manchester, where they started off in the 70s. Turns out they're now just 8 miles away from me, in Higham Ferrers, Northants. I might pop in sometime!
