    Very nice. Nice to see that the Candy Apple Red G5420TG is not an exclusive European model. :) Sweet blonde Country Gent.

    Hmm. Ya know......now that I see the Fairlane Blue ProJet I actually don't like it. Lol. Good though, saves me $. :)

    Nice to see some new stuff though.

    The choice of the technically inferior wider headstock over the recently-improved one seems inexplicable to me.

    I love the Fairlane Blue color so much that I am considering buying the 5420 in that color. However, I just wish they hadn't put a Streamliner signature v-shaped tailpiece on this new 5435 model or I would have considered it instead. I had to go to the link to verify that it wasn't a new model Streamliner. Oh, well.....

    I'd like a firebird red pro jet. With Dearmonds. And a V cut.

    I really like the Country Gent. Not a big friend of the V-tailpiece.

    "The all-new Gretsch “Squeezebox” paper-in-oil caps add smooth vintage tone"

    That's a courageous claim.

    I'd like to see a 16" (or less) hollow double-cut, regular F-holes, 24.6" scale, with a bridge base. To me, that's a hole in their line up - that country gent is 17" right?

    Bronze Burst on the Jim Dandy looks good, although it does look familiar.

    That 5420 CAR is a GOOD looking V-hickle!! I'd have to see the Anniversary in person but it looks sweet from where I am sitting!!

    Don't EVEN start that freakin' tone cap debate!! LOL!

    I sure like the candy apple 5420. I like the dandy too. I'm not going to do it, but it would be fun to have a Dandy of a different color standing in each corner of the house, each tuned to a differenr tuning.

    Perhaps they had leftover necks and decided to use them up by painting them in flashy colors for nuts like me. I'd buy one if I could.

    100% sure it is. If it was 16", they would call it a junior model, like the 16" Junior White Falcon. And I can tell just by looking at it, that the lower bout is 17".
