    Such a hot guitar!
    Love the look of those pickups against that red sparkle.

    I can never get the sparkle to photograph quite right. I borrowed this shot as it's one of the better ones for showing the variation in the colour of the sparkles.

    Wait dude, are you rocking a Kustom Coupe series? 36 or 72?
    A 72 is my go-to gigging amp!

    They are waaayyy under the radar in the "great amps" department.

    Sparkle is incredibly difficult to photograph properly, no matter what shade.

    I love them ! :cool::cool::cool:

    This is the essence même of the Gretsch guitars, which makes them so distinctive in look :rolleyes:... Unlike on Fender guitars, soit dit en passant. :D

    A+!

    They do tend to look even better in person. Hard to imagine though.

    Very nice, yes. But I don't know about Fender, I was playing Miserlou on this one last night...
