    Thanks, Tony. I absolutely love this metallic color ...the first batch of FMI Gretches in 2003 also had this teal tone as well. It's killer with the gold hardware.

    Who said last guitar? I believe I said "last Gretsch!" Three is enough.

    one hundred Thumbs-Up!

    Now all you need to do is rip out the Filtertrons and install some DiMarzio SD humbuckers, get rid of that old-man Bigsby and put in a Floyd Rose with a locking nut, ditch that bridge and install a Tone-Pros Tune-o-matic, scallop the fretboard, Get yourself a black leather strap with fake bullets and spikes, and paint gold tiger stripes against the Cadillac Green! Voila-- instant metal machine!:D:D:D

    Oh, I almost forgot-- replace that stodgy old pickguard with a Japanese Rising Sun graphic and some random Japanese Katakana characters... Gee, I miss the '80's... NOT!

    Serious congrats on your new baby!
