    Was on the lookout forever for a 5128 Gold Sparkle......as you know a guy shined me on one then Border Radio put his up for sale and saved the day. (I'd post pics but you've seen them already). Super smoooooth transaction and it's a spectacular instrument!!! Well packed and 9.8 out of 10 condition from the KS factory with the more desirable Bigsby, etc. So today I'm bored and accidentally find another one from the KP factory in 8 out of 10 condition for a REALLY good price....so for the price I wasn't saying no. So I have two 5126's one a KP and a KS and will now have two 5128's from KP and KS. Oh and a weird coincidence, my 5125, 5127, and 5129 were all made in June 05 !! That makes an even 10 I'm done for this lifetime.

    I'm sure you've posted pics of all of these before, but I strongly suggest you post pictures of your whole 512x collection.
    Please and thank you.:rolleyes:

    Sounds like you will need a wide-angle lens!

    You’re not posting pics because we’ve seen them before? WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?!

    Oh, and congratulations!

    The G5128 is what got me superhooked on Gretsch. I looked for it everywhere. I couldn't find it. So I got the G5120 when they came out. Haven't looked back.
