    I just ordered a Vintage Select 6128 53 with TV Jones T armonds from Sweetwater. Can't wait! Anyone else have experience with this guitar?

    I love that vintage script on the headstock. My 6228 has that.
    Congrats.

    7lbs. Yup, Gretsch calls them solid bodies but they are not. I like that about them
