    Sorry for the crappy photo, but I'd just opened it and am playing it now. More will follow very shortly.

    Some of you may recall my débâcle from Bax Music when they sent me the wrong guitar TWICE! Well, they finally got the 55 and I bought it for a very good price at £2700. It arrived just before dark. I'll come back and gush about it tomorrow!

    My first Gretsch! Woohoo!

    Wow, that took awhile! Been wondering if you'd gotten it yet. Glad to see they finally delivered, looks like it was worth the wait.

    Congrats on FINALLY getting what you wanted. It's a beauty. I wondered what ever became of that mess. Wasn't that like 7 or 8 months ago? You definitely win the patience award of the decade.

    Congratulations! I remember the débâcle from Bax Music and that they said they would have a '55 for you by November. Well they made good on their time frame, just under the wire. Awesome looking Falcon. I have her sister:

    So glad to hear you finally got the ax you wanted. If you would care to share, I’m sure many of us would like to hear the rest of the story re:BAX.

    You did the right think holding out for the 55. Nothing beats the dynas + glyph inlays for that iconic Falcon flavor.
