I said if I ever found one I’d order on the spot and I did. Also I just gave my 17 year old his first Gretsch, my Custom black & gold 5420 with TV Classics.

    it is a gorgeous "teal green" sorta kinda maybe (?) in real life ?

    And here's a Custom Shop lefty single cutaway in Cadillac Green . . .
    I'll guess these are lacquered finishes (?)
