    This black sparkle G3166 is no longer with me -- too heavy -- but it's always nice to have a reason to reminisce...

    Are these pretty uncommon? So far I think I’ve only ever seen yours, mine and maybe one other on this forum.

    Yes it was thank you brother and it is a limited edition, then they would run another colour like the Cadillac Green, White, Aspen Green or the Candy Apple Red with the same prefix: G5425TG <Tremolo Gold> FMIC told me they run about 700 of each.

    My first Gretsch was a G5435TGC (Cadillac Green). A FSR for Long and McQuade (but I have also seen some for sale in the far east).

    Right on thanks. I have seen the white and red ones too, but the black/gold seems a lot less common for whatever reason. Not sure I’ve seen the green one, need to google that.

    I would love to get my hands on one of the purple or metallic green ones Sweetwater did too, but those seem to have really jumped in value.
