    I dunno - part of me want one just for the outrageousness of it. But I kind of like that red one in the photo...

    Talking about unusual Penguins, I find this one tempting:



    Thankfully I don't have room for more guitars ;)

    The glitter stuff is definitely unique, but Gretsch seldom has the flame maple beauty other brands are famous for. Or imagine a Gretsch with a buckeye burl top :cool:

    For me, the Penguin headstock is way too big for a Jet body.

    Are these finishes supposedly only available in Japan?

    I think a flamed top Power Jet or something would be a good way to really get into a wider market. Myself, I'm a heathen plain top guy haha

    Me too. Too goofy for me. I love a Jet, but I hate the mudswitch location and can't do the big goofy headstock.
