    Yup, I will be back in the Gretsch world after a short emptiness :). Hopefully I’m home for it and it doesn’t get lost on a truck. Standby for more updates.

    The model is a G6___. This will actually be my first new Gretsch. I’ve had two Jets, Hot Rod, and a G6118 but bought them all used. So this is pretty exciting for me. :)

    I’m dedicating this reveal to @TSims1 . He did a very cool reveal a year ago. I just hope this one doesn’t get lost in a truck. ;)

    Btw, if I’ve never told you... that reverse Anni you have is pretty darn cool. What year is it and do you know how many were made?

    Well lessee... was going to guess 6118 Annie, but since you've had one, no. Same for a Hot Rod. Proline, guessing hollow. Is it a 6120 Smoke? Whatever it is, I hope it doesn't decide to go on tour like Tony's did!

    I’m being tortured right now waiting for the big brown truck. Not only do I hope it doesn’t suddenly go on tour, I hope it’s the right guitar. Unlike a member who did a reveal only to open up to the wrong model. I think my heart would stop.

    I debated for days and waited until two hours left of the sale to buy this one. Deciding to sell a second guitar to fund it was a really tough decision. I must say it makes me even more anxious to get a hands on feel for the neck.

    I've never bought a guitar I've not actually played before. Although I've come close a few times online.

    I think I'd be a nervous wreck awaiting delivery.

    I'm guessing this isn't helping... ;)

    Ha ha... you guys aren’t helping any. It’s worse because I’m stuck by the front windows hanging Christmas lights today. So I’ve got full view of the road too... ugh.


    Those are really cool. Congrats. How can you keep it in the box?

    My suggestion to everyone is to have your address registered with a UPS and FedEx account, so that you can control deliveries to your address. For guitars and amps, I always redirect it to the local office so I can pick it up at my leisure.
