    I checked the other day and nothing was listed yet.
     
  3. Figures. The first time that a guitar I might actually want, and it's not a million dollars, and I have to wait.

    Great story both here and linked, Fred. I too picked up on your rerun name connection :)

    According to the article in Premier Guitar, that model won't be out until November.

  6. Thanks! I contacted cream city, they said the same thing. It's never carved in stone. Street price about 449, plus case. Considering putting a deposit down, hoping I do not loose interest between now and Novemberish.

    If I could find another blue Jett with that tail piece I would go used, but there are none to be found in the acceptable price range.

    This is the only blue Jet that I know of, in the Electromatic range:

    There also was the Mystery Jet that I bought, sold, bought back and sold again:

    Well, I thought I had qualified/disqualified myself above, using the phrase, "that I know of" (e.g. to my limited knowledge)? ;)

    You did and you're okay. :)

    (That made me think of a logic class I took once. As long as you qualify something with an untrue statement, the entire statement is logically true. For example, saying, "If the moon is made of green cheese, then I can play guitar better than Brian Setzer," is a true statement, as the first part isn't true and so the conditional second part doesn't matter.)

    That's good. :)

    Logic 101 was required for my business administration degree. You applied it well in your example above. I must have subconsciously drawn on that experience?

    It usally takes 3-4 months minimum from announcement to release in the US and up to half a year or even 9 months in Europe. But I bet Gretsch will try, that you get one under the christmas tree :D

    Do you want me to see if I can pull some strings here in the USA to help out Europe? ;) I wonder why there is that 3-6 month lag?

    Thanks, but my christmas tree will see no guitar this year, but there are more Europeans around here, who might appreciate it ;)

    Sorry; maybe your Christmas will be fulfilling in other ways?
