    I'm only posting this here because I can't find any reference for the guitar online and I'm wonder if anyone else has seen it. It's Georgia Green, had catseye holes, three pickups and two switches on the top left horn. Other than that it was a 2622t - Broadtron pickups, Streamliner headstock, and plastic tips and knobs. It also had very small block inlays which I've never seen on a Gretsch. It was basically a hybrid of a 2622T and the 2013 5622T. I'm kicking myself for not taking a picture of it. Has anyone seen a guitar like this? I'm wondering if it's a special run for guitar center.

    New or used? Mislabeled? Modded?

    Probably factory special run. Pretty sure 5622v1 and a certain Corvette have been the only 3 PUP production guitars by Gretsch.

    It's not an Electromatic. Although it looked just like it. Except it has a streamliner headstock, broadtron pickups, and plastic knobs and switch tips. The fingerboard was also really light. looked like pau ferro. I'll probably go back and take a picture.

    Besides a picture , look down the cat-eye hole and see if there's a paper tag . That'll give you the model and serial number. . Then post all the info

    Whoa . . . That needed a trigger warning. As @Ricochet said, a little attracted and a little repulsed. I've never seen that before, it doesn't seem like a fake and it doesn't look like a mod. An FSR?

    I just discovered another one of these guitars this morning at my local GC (Bakersfield CA) so they really do exist. Cat eyes, Georgia green, thumbnails, and three Broad’trons - $599. I kind of have a thing for cat eyes so I was mildly interested until I saw how honkin’ huge the Broad’trons looked.

    I might have bitten if it had Blacktops.

    I saw this the other day too and was curious as to how it sounded, but things were too loud in the store to bother plugging in
