    Many nice new stuff here. I especially like the Parlor-sized Rancher in Casino Gold.[​IMG]

    I found the Malcolm tribute guitar debatable. I personally would not like to play such an instrument (as long as I would not play in an AC/DC tribute band). And I doubt that Mal ever used a Powertron.

    I bought the white Rancher Penguin Parlor, this came out not too long after and had it been available at the time it would have been a contender. I find that color pretty nice.

    All you need is to retrofit some HS Filtertrons to your Electromatic 12 string, and you will have essentially the same guitar.

    That stupid Vintage Select 53..... Makes me weak in the knees still. I know it's not exactly new, but it was on this list. I would even trade my 6129 for the '53.

    Good thing I'm gear fund broke right now!

    Have you seen the gold Penguin? To bad it isn’t a double cut!

    I still love my plain jane Rancher dreadnought with the gold hardware. It plays better than anything else under $1000.00.

    ** This is the one I just purchased ( blonde / amber guitar in the photo ) G5422G - FSR ( Factory Special Run ) Amber
    ** I had an older version I sold about 3 years ago ( black guitar in photo ) G5422-12 Black
    ********* But check out the Gretsch Guitar web sight . Theres a G6122-6212 Vintage Select Edition Chet Atkins Country Gentleman Hollow Body 12 .... I could just die ( in a good way :) ) Now that's what I'm talkin' about
    Gretsch does make the Electromatic 12 G5422 in black and walnut stain , both with gold hardware

    I agree that its pretty over the top with the missing pickups and whatnot, but I read somewhere that Malcolm had his filtertron custom wound super hot by someone, so perhaps thats why they spec'd the powertron

    If you ever get chance, try one. I got a 2017 one and it's a beautiful guitar. If either of you have a 6120EC you can have mine ;)

    Gotcha sir,for a minute there i thought Gretsch had actually brought out a regular blonde 12'er and i'd missed it somehow ,they need to reissue that Nesmith 12 ,but in the Pro Line NOT the Custom Shop,i can't afford those,sadly.
