Do anyone think Keith will use Gretsch guitars on the tour mixed with his Gibsons, Fenders, and Martins?

You never know do you.
He goes through phases with respect to his standard tuning choices.
It's always interesting to see what he's going to get into next and what additions will turn up for a fresh leg of a tour.

I really doubt we will see him ever again with a Gretsch guitar live on stage.

Ronnie's

edit: oops, without the photo in magee mineko's post, the questions don't make much sense, do they?!
here's the photo that includes Charlie with Ronnie's White Falcon:

Thanks with sssoul. I have always loved the look of those white falcons - ever since I saw Mike Nesmith with one (funnily enough).

in that case ... here's one for you, terraplane:


- 1998 (looks like a family member took the shot?)

That's a good picture. I see he has a Ricky as well. Wonder if he has ever used it live. BTW, Ronnie is an excellent ilustrator.

I had an original Gretsch Silver Jet from the early 60's. I paid $185 for it in the late 70's and sold it in the early 90's for about $450, but it needed lots of fret work. The guitar became popular again about 2000 and now sells for way over $2,000. I kick myself over this one. I have seen Woody and Joe Perry use this particular guitar.

for the record, since this thread is now going into the Ratbag Boogie index ...
1] the Gretsch Keith's got at the HOF ceremony is 6128 Duojet, right? [www.gretschguitars.com]
and
2] there's a shot of Keith with Brian's Gretsch on page 76 of Rolling With the Stones -
apparently at an autumn 1963 gig.

interesting: in this thread here: [www.iorr.org]
out cohort Phil Good asserts that the Duo-Jet Keith was using in 2007 was actually built by John Bolin
