I got a free Gretsch 5135. Yes, It did happen. There was a seller known as Hello Music that sold guitars a really low prices. The gimmick ? No factory warranty, warranty was through Hello Music. I don’t know how they got their merchandise. Of course, they were not authorized dealers. ‘Nuff background! I ordered a Gretsch 5135 at a really good price. It came in, I opened the box, and one of the knobs had gotten loose in the box, and made 5 very small indentations in the top of the guitar, all between the Bigsby and the strap button. I popped off an email about it, and got nothing as an answer. I waited a couple of weeks, and several emails unanswered caused me to file a claim with Paypal. The deadline came and went, Paypal refunded my money, and I never heard a word from Hello Music. They ceased operations in less than a month after that. Of course, I still have the guitar. It plays good and sounds good, but I never have felt good about getting a guitar in that manner.
