Quotable: “I’d always wanted one of them. To me, it’s the perfect balance of old and new, because they were built exactly how they were built back in the day - but they’re brand new.

It’s just the most beautiful guitar in the world, I love using it.” – on his Custom Shop 6120 Gretsch to Music Radar
