Give it a 15-minute plugged-in shakedown run just to make sure everything's working OK, then install a set of wound-G flatwound 11's (IME the go-to string for most Gretsch hollows/semis) and wail away for about 4-5 hours...

When you're done - and you've finally wiped the Cheshire Cat smile off your face - give us a full hands-on NGD review...
