Re: I got scammed. (WARNING: RANT AHEAD)

Re: Gretsch Renown '57s Jazz Bop Shell Packs Now Deep Discounted?

I lowered mine all the way down and measured 7" from the wing nut to the bottom of the Aerodisc. You can check yours and see if it's the same before cutting. This isn't an issue for me because I...
