    That CAR 5420 would be gorgeous, if not for that damned gold hardware...

    OH MY GOD, 6118 in light blue....

    Dammit, dammit, dammit! I thought I was done lusting over guitars for a while.

    Oh gretsch, you cruel, cruel mistress. I admit it, I'm done. Gonna have to sell some shi... stuff.

    Beautiful but on these 5420 the pickups are not the best produced by gretsch. I've on 5420 in orange finish but i didn't use so much.

  8. Anyone know how much one of the g54 series Jett's weigh? The blue almost matches my hottod. But I can't handle heavy guitars anymore. Ever since playing a 56 guild aristocrat that weighed next to nothing, I am having a hard time finding anything else in that's shape that's light. Jett's have the same shape, but I think they weigh more. The guild was a hollow body with no sound holes.

    I can't play a Gretsch without a bigsby on it. The guitars on the picture are sold now. And replaced by better models. 032.JPG

    I like that CAR with Gold hardware. Somehow it reminds me of time, when I was drooling the old Setzer model (CAR). Nowadays I'm drooling the Setzer green sparkle. I hope that someday they build Setzer model with leopard paint.

    I remember when I first saw the 2003 G6120AM and thought how gorgeous it was. I thought if I ever get a steady job with Boeing, I would get it, or upgrade my G6122. Well, by 2005 I got the Boeing job (and was laid off again in 2011 :( ), but I went for a 2005 G6122-1962. Now it seems that Gretsch has combined the two and made a very beautiful guitar.
