Just snagged a G3140 Historic Series for a really good price from a local seller: When these came out in the late 90s, I had just gotten back into playing electric (had taken a break, just playing acoustic for a few years); local store had one in their window, and I passed by there eyeing it every day, but couldn't afford it (had just finished university & gotten my first real job) - had to settle for an Ibanez AFS 75 T (not a bad guitar, but a bit bland). So I was really happy to have found this. First impressions: those Dearmond 2000s are a bit brighter and twangier (which is a good thing) than other Dynasonics I have tried. ...and the neck is too small to feel comfortable. But that's a problem I have had with every single Gretsch guitar I ever tried (no matter whether Pro series, Electromatic or Streamliner); I love 1-3/4" nuts, and I love fat 1" thick baseball bat necks - this is neither, though it seems to be a little bit chunkier than my Pro Jet (old model that came with those small HBs, not the current one with the Blacktops). I'll have to see whether I can deal with that, and whether I'll keep it (if only for sentimental reasons), or whether I will flip it again... If I keep it, it will definitely need a Bigsby!
