    Just curious why the 6122 doesn’t come in more colors. I look around but they all seem to be the same sort of walnut stain as a players edition natural finish. Not that I don’t like that color I would personally like a brighter color. Maybe walnut on the back and sides and a nice casino gold top or even better the Lime colored gold top, metal flake etc. Heck a Broadway Jade color would be great or a solid surf or turquoise, perhaps bright blue or deep blood red metal flake! None of the drum skins though I wouldn’t want anything else on the wood muffling it.

    Actually the more I think about it it would be great to have one in Broadway Jade.

    Gretsch has made a few limited editions over the years.


    And green:

    Interesting idea. The two colors are a limited edition and I think the green is a custom shop. Of course you can get any color you like if you go with custom shop but expect a pretty high price point. I wouldn't be opposed to new colors. Variety is the spice of life.

    I guess I always thought of the Country Gentleman as just that, a "gentleman" - something that didn't need flashy colors. To each their own, though. I guess if Gretsch felt like other colors would sell well enough, they'd do it.

    I think I would rather have the players edition, that is I think it has real f-holes and if I could get one in Broadway Jade that would be incredible!
