    It’s the most desirable thing in the catalogue right now.

    Truly beautiful, thanks for the additional pics. On the color, I thought he said it was Magic Black?

    Great pics and congrats. That's sweet.

    Some really special specs on this model IMO.

    Long scale neck, 16" Electrotone body, hard not to love that.

    Enjoy the heck out of it.

    It has perfect specs Ended up trading a couple of vintage to take it home. But awfully glad I did.

    The shop manager knows I’m a gretsch guy so held this aside for me until I could get first look.

    There is a black Phoenix, a 6120-59, 6122–58, and 10 other pro lines on the wall calling my name ... I’d take em all if I could

    Well worth the trade I’m sure. It’ll be interesting to see for how long and what the total quantity produced will be. It might end up becoming very collectible long term. I’ve got to say it’s the first faux f-hole Gretsch I like the looks of. Maybe it’s the solid black holes on that sparkly black that pull it off. It looks absolutely gorgeous.
