    Just ordered one of these from my local store here in Italy. Hopefully arriving next week. Very cool looking guitar but I cannot see it anywhere on the Gretsch site. SKU 2506911512
    All gold hardware, hump block inlays, early 50's enlarged headstock. Seems to be in shops only in Europe at the moment.

    Welcome aborad Anthony!

    Congrats on the incoming new geet,those look great,i miss the horse shoe in the head though,i'd have to find a transfer or something.

    I think these are limited run, i've seen some in black here in the UK too.

    Transfers might be cool. A G would look super. All advice welcome...

    I'm waiting for mine to arrive too.
    Can't wait to see how she feels and sounds. It'll be my first Gretsch.
    Been wanting one for quite some time now.

    With a tweed Victoria 5112 it sounds a little too warm for my preference. It sounds better to my ear with a treble booster in front to clean up the sound.
