    New to me black Panther purchased from @LivCo ! Had an electromatic g5655tg prior , tried to upgrade pickups and bridge but never bonded and sold it. The Panther is on another level and is the sound I have always had in my head that I was searching for in a Gretsch. I think I have found my new #1!

    Glad someone picked this one up, it was a great deal. I spotted a white Panther in my local GC a few months ago, but it was just not in my budget at the time, it was gone soon after. I have the LTD version of the G5655TG that has Blacktop Filtertrons, and they are decent enough for what I play, I will probably keep them stock.

    I agree the pickup upgrade wasn’t a huge difference for the money spent to do it. I did think the bridge and locking tuner upgrade was a difference for that guitar though, esp since the one I had some tuning stability issues.

    Hopefully the Panther is less itchy than that Owens & Corning pink stuff. :D:eek:

    Yes! Glad it stayed with a forum member, and slightly relieved that it wasnt me. That is a dream Gretsch right there. Play it with joy and gusto. Congrats
