    @davenumber2 pointed out there’s two new colors coming out in Jan for the G2622T P90 Limited Edition. I thought it’d be interesting to see which color comes out on top. I feel the two new colors are a NAMM leak from Guitar Center since they’re due in January at the same time. It’s not even on the Gretsch site yet.

    I wish that they had used black housing P90s on the Phantom Metallic version.

    I actually prefer the non matching covers and pickguard. It makes the P90 stand out more. But a pickup cover swap would be easy enough for most.

    While I of course like the third option, I think the name is wrong. Gunmetal usually refers to grey not blue. I like the phantom metallic too, but the color name is meaningless.

    Red.
    The other two colors look like toy guitars.

    Tough choice... Red, and something besides the red tortoise pickguard. Black pearloid looks good with red, or maybe just your basic blk/wht/blk.

    I'm wondering why they didn't go with gold hardware on the grey like on the red and blue.

    If they had done this, I probably would have picked Phantom. But as they are, I'm digging the red. Tough call, though!

    @audept It’s interesting to me, I wouldn’t have guessed I was a minority on the cream pickup cover. But it seems to be. I do think black would look great too.

    I like all three colors. Although I would likely change or drop the pickguard on each of the colors to black with a traditional shape.

    I‘ll never understand Gretsches new tension bar Bigsby trend.

    I think it’s the neck angle and cost. I would prefer a Caddy tailpiece on these to that Tension bar thing. Unfortunately, they don’t sell them as parts right now. Regardless, I’m considering maybe picking one up.

    I prefer the black covers on any color model. To me it just looks less "plastic" if you know what I mean.

    All three colours look really great on that model.

    I’d have to go with the Grey simply for the chrome hardware - not a fan of gold - but the red is a gorgeous colour.

    I’d also need black P90 covers, chrome knobs and - for the love of god - sort the string alignment out on that Bigsby .... :)

    someone photoshop black p90's onto the Phantom. and while you're at it, put the red pickguard on it too. I think the red guard goes better with the fretboard wood than the black guard does.
