Hi, I've just placed an order for a Black G5622T Electromatic. I've been reading up on Gretsch for ages now and finally got to play a Walnut G5622T last week at Andertons in Guildford, which confirmed that it suited my hands and playing. Unfortunately they didn't have my preferred black version in stock and I wasn't sure whether to go back this weekend and try the G5422T (which only appeared from another demo room, just as I had to leave the shop). As usual, I spent too long debating what to do. After work tonight I looked back on Anderton's website and saw that the prices have jumped up by about 15%, including the pre-order Black G5422T that I nearly 'blind' ordered this week. Anyway, I did a bit of serious searching and found a shop in Exeter which still showed stock of a Black G5622T for about £8 more than Anderton's 'old' price. Just crossing my fingers that I don't get a call tomorrow to say the order is cancelled or something, otherwise I should receive it by about Tuesday next week. I've been playing since I was 7, but never owned a semi-acoustic type guitar, so I'm looking forward to trying this with my various amps. I've got a Fender '64 Deluxe Reverb I bought last summer (gorgeous clean tones) and two Marshall heads; A Mini Jubilee 20 watt and a Marshall JMP1 1 watt (and a couple of different 2x12 cabs).
