    I'm the proud new owner of @ramjac's walnut G5122, which he modded with, among other things, TV Jones pickups. The Super'Tron in the neck and the Classic Plus in the bridge are the same configuration as Gretsch uses in the G6122T-59 Vintage Select Edition. They give the guitar a strong voice that can range from flute-clean to snarling, with well balanced bass and treble.

    I started looking for an affordable walnut Gretsch after my heart fluttered over @mbkri's Country Gentleman. This "middle class Gent," as @wildeman called it, was just what I wanted. It looks great, plays easy, and sounds awesome.

    Very handsome. The Compton and the v cut Bigsby make a fine back end behind those pickups.
    Thats a good looking guitar right there.

    Very nice!! I'd say it's even an "upper middle class" Gent.
