My 5966 dreadnought Gretsch acoustic guitar review

in #dtubelast year (edited)


Review of my 5966 dreadnought Gretsch acoustic guitar. It is a vintage guitar from the 1970's. I bought it in 1977 or 1978 and it has travelled with me ever since.

Famous Gretsch guitar players include
The Beatles' George Harrison and John Lennon.
The Rolling Stones' Brian Jones
The Who's Pete Townshend

You said 22 frets, but I count 20 :) I don't think many acoustic players get right up there anyway, especially with no cutaway.

You are correct @steevc check the video. I've sorted it our now thanks. My brain is not playing ball with me lately.

I know what it's like when you try to do these things with no script. It's a nice looking guitar anyway.

I love the deeper punchy notes of a dreadnought.

It sure does have a deep sound. I've posted two videos one after the other tonight as they are closely tied together in terms of the content.

Another good one to watch when you have a chance, https://m.imdb.com/title/tt7574126/
