Hi,

I'm trying to get back to playing the guitar after a 15-20 year hiatus. I currently have a Peavy Predator Plus that I'm planning on restoring, but in the meantime, I'm looking to get a new guitar. After a lot of web searching, I've become quite interested in Gretsch guitars. I still don't know which one I should get (my budget is quite limited - around 500$), and in order to decide, I would need to play with a few myself. Problem is, I can't seem to find a place around Montreal that holds Gretsch guitars in stock.

Any one knows of any such place? I live in Laval (north shore of Mtl), but can drive a little if it's worth it.

(As a side note, I'm also considering buying a Les Paul type of guitar, probably an Epiphone. Any insights comparing that and a Gretsch would be more than welcome :))

Thanks guys!

I could try one at L&M and another model at Archambault (local chain in QC). I loved the G2655 so much I just might pull the trigger :) Still not sure though, since it's a few hundred dollars more than what I had in mind...

Musique Diplomate is listing 20 Gretsch guitars on their web site right now. I don't know if they're all in stock, but I know they have quite a few. Give them a call. Probably the best music store in Montreal for higher-end stuff. Located on rue Beaubien. I doubt that you can get a new Gretsch for $500 however.
