    Havent sold off the spectrasonic yet, and then in some horse trading craziness I now have something I am both excited and ashamed about at the same time, showing up on Friday.
    Only @drmilktruck could appreciate what is coming to sandy eggo more.
    The color goes against all I believe in next to gold hardware but it is the car color I associate my childhood muscle car lust with most next to an orange Chevy Nomad wagon, the Pontiac GTO. I am drawn to it like a moth to a glowing porch lamp.

    Hmmm... a blue guitar for Tavo. Which Gretsch comes in a similar color?

    What do they call that color on a GTO? In guitar colors, it'd best match Pelham Blue from the other G brand. (Fender Lake Placid Blue is close too, although it is darker.)

    Spot on for the Nomad. You couldn't give them away 40 years ago. I've had 2 68's and 1 69 GTO in my younger days. Now I have a pickup and a PT Cruiser.:(

    lol... I was thinking the same until I realized he posted in the Gretsch Discussion Forum. Unless he’s delirious from what was likely a busy weekend.

    Tavo, I’m actually a bit surprised you’ve got a inbound NGD when this Nocturne Rooster coming to town. Btw, I’ve wanted to see a white top Jet for years. This validates my point, it would be stunning. So this blue whatever it is guitar must be something very special.
