    Okay,

    So finally here's a real photo shoot of both of my new guitars, the 6128T-TVP and my week old 5420T.

    It's a gallery, so enjoy!

    It's actually a Candy Apple Red (CAR) Gretsch G5420T!

    Looks like a 6120 right??!?

    :)

    I got rid of a the silver/blue anniversary G6118T-ISV. Sounds crazy right? Well, not really... the 5420 has a chunkier neck, right in the sweet spot, and with the gretsch bigsby, locking tuners, and HS filtertrons, it could hang with the 6118 all day - at least plugged in - it doesn't have the same resonance unplugged - and to be honest, I preferred the 5420. That 6118 neck was puny.

    The Power Jet is a keeper just as is, I am still exploring the sounds it makes. Really digging it.

    5420 is a great guitar, at a reasonable price.

    You modded to the FIlter'trons and the B6 V-vibrato?
