It may be, but I saw it on craigslist.
mini polish wheel on my dremel w some compound. not too fast
I have one. Got rid of the `Bigsby` and replaced by a real one with the Chet arm. Polished the matt finish up to a moderate gloss, After this picture was taken, I replaced the bridge by a Compton made brass bridge. Works great. The scale lentgh is a bit on the short side. But sitting in the late, late evening with the TA on your lap is nice. My fav Gretsch is the 6122 II though
Here’s a man Salmon on Fleabay.
Although I’d like it better if it had gold p-stripe instead of red like this one.
Are they a larger 17"?
They do indeed have a 17” upper bout, but with the smaller scale length.
A friend of mine has the pink and he absolutely loves it. He did a little bit of modding on it, swapped out the knobs for dice and a few adjustments.
Top photo he took, bottom one I took (obvs)
What’s going on with his Bigsby arm in the top photo? Is it just an optical illusion from the angle or foes he have some sort of super spring making it come out far from the top?
Knowing him, he probably changed it. He's lefthanded...and I just figured out recently that he actually strings the guitar like it was right handed. He's an enigma... (love him to bits, but sometimes he drives me bananas.)
Thanks everyone who has contributed! About to pull the trigger on either a TA with upgraded TV Jones pickups, or a new 5420 for about the same price, but i'm still undecided. If anyone has a strong opinion and can sway me that would be great!
That's odd . . . and no pickguard with the two dice as different knobs from the others - hmmm.
It is strung righty from top pic, and yet it was originally a lefty model anyway by the single cutaway left-orientation.
So the TA has a shorter scale than a Gent?? That is odd, i thought it was basically a Electro-Falcon and had a 25 1/2" scale.
