    Well actually it was yesterday -- but here she is!

    I traded an Epiphone for it. Going to do some videos coming up - stay tuned!

    ...seriously, no one likes hearing people play out of tune.

    Congrats Jack! The Electromatic Jets are fine guitars. I made the leap from an Epi LP to an Electromatic Pro Jet, so I know how you're feeling about now.

    Yes the sort of burgundy sparkle is really nice looking. I may swap out the pickup rings for gold ones -- saw that on the higher end Players Edition jet and I love that look.

    I love the gold and Chrome combo. It makes everything pops more. A nice easy mod too.

    Speaking of the hardware, does anyone know a good resource for Gretsch parts where you don’t get taken to the cleaners?

    Great color on a cool guitar. I'm with the camp that the V stop does nothing for, but thats just a preference. Will look forward to your video, you do some good reviews.

    Good luck with finding gold rings and a gold pickguard, I too love that look and have been looking high and low for them. Unless you're willing to pay for custom made parts, they are just unavailable. Great guitar nonetheless, enjoy!

    Have you tried ordering the rings through a Gretsch dealer? Since the BT’s are relatively new that’s likely the only way.

    @jackfossett make sure the rings are for BT pickups (likely Players Edition for gold). Most of the ones you’ll find online are going to be sized for the standard FT’s. From what I’ve read and looking at them, BT’s are considerably wider.

    Don't be bashful. Playing out of tune is what the net is all about. That and people trying to show what a certain guitar sound like, even though he's playing through a half dozen pedals into an unknown amp. Those are my favorite.

    Congrats! I love my DCM jet. Levy's makes a burgundy tweed strap that goes well with it.

    ?? There are many available.

    Nice choice. I really couldn’t find any reason not to buy one of these.
