    Very nice! My 5420T is orange and Korean as well. I'm not so keen on the specs of the newer ones.

    Those Koreans are awesome guitars, beautifully made! And the Super Hilotrons sound great. I had one for a short while and only returned it because it was too much like another guitar that I had. Hang on to those pickups, if you ever sell the guitar, because Gretsch doesn't make them any more.

    The latest (Chinese) version of that model comes with Broad'Trons. :(

    I say "Oops" because I didn't plan on buying that guitar today...but it just so happened the deal came up, and I felt it was time to act!

    That's happened to us all, I'm sure. You snagged a great guitar, while they're still available as that one is (Korean and with Super Hilotrons). The quality on those guitars is fantastic.

    If anyone is interested, there's a dealer in California (selling through eBay, I think) that has a new one of those in walnut finish, which is gorgeous. Rosewood/Super Hilo's/Korean.

    We've all told that story. "Honey, the deal was so good, I HAD to buy it. It's like we made money on the deal!" :D
