That black one is something else!
I agree, that black with gold and red in the pickups is fetching. Guess those pickups would be redtop filtertrons?
They did everything I was wanting them to do with the double jet minus dropping the Bigsby in favor of the G tailpiece but that’s an easy fix. Bound headstock, no more Electromatic logo, mahogany body, thumbnail inlays, and brought back Casino Gold. Guess I’m getting a new guitar soon.
I couldn’t be more bored...And back to big headstock on the black one???
The marketing guyz are in total fury, aren't they ?
I dig the double jet.
I’ve never been a fan of B5, but that’s the way it goes on these days.
Gretsch marketing division is starting to behave like an asian auto manufacturer.
I think the big headstock is awesome if it’s bound. The large unbound headstocks looked lame. I still wanna pinstripe the edges of my 5129 headstock eventually.
Another year and still no Electromatic Billy Bo's...come on Gretsch , you know you want too!
And no proline Corvette either
Obviously it's more beneficial to the Gretsch PR machinery to sell one or two freakin magenta Setzer Hotrods with a vintage otentic misplaced volume knob, than sell a couple of hundred Electromatics to the plebs on guitar fora.
I’m digging the Electromatic Double Jet in Tahiti Red, I’m going to get one ordered this morning
In the photo the HR’s look to have correct knob placement. I’m wondering if the other photos were photo shopped from the Smoke 59. I believe the color selection is coming from Setzer himself. Although the return of Lime Gold may be a suggestion from Gretsch for sales.
Gretsch really should do an Electro Billy Bo. I bet they’d sell more than a couple.
Gretsch really should do a vintage correct orange 6120, nitrolacquered, TV-Jones equipped for 2k. I bet they‘d sell also more than a couple. I personally don‘t need a signature model.
I would be happy with a modded version of this G5420T-59:
I agree. No disrespect intended to people like Chet Atkins (RIP) and Brian Setzer but, it makes a pricey guitar like a professional line Gretsch hollow body, even more expensive.
I'm kind of smitten over that one also.
Likewise, I think proline Corvettes with Powertrons would sell big as a competitor to the very popular Gibson SG
