The orange stain G5420T got a new set of strap buttons (the retro ones were getting loose and impractical for me). I played a few chords unplugged last night and was very pleasantly surprised at the openness and sweetness of the acoustic tones. I guess the larger f-holes make a difference explaining why my G2420T sounds slightly boxier acoustically. Anyway, it was one of those moments where you put the final touch (new Gretsch walnut leather strap too) after a long process of getting the guitar to play the way you want and feeling the result overcoming expectations. Just wanted to share the joy!
