    For me recently, it's the 1967 Monkees model 6123. I watched 3 or 4 come and go a couple of years ago. And now nothing (save one, at a not-so-reasonable price).

    Basically any Proline Jet aside from the Power Jet. There have been a grand total of 2 new Power Jets that have come through local shops in the past 4 years and have yet to see one semi-local used, whether via shop or private party. I played those 2 Power Jets quite a bit and they were really nicely built, but neither of them really clicked to the $2K level for me.

  3. They made a electric tenor jet many moons ago. The few I have seen were way beyond my price range.

    I have been in exactly one shop (Fuller's in Houston) that had any Proline Jets in the last 10 years in my neck of the woods.

    6022-CV, the big, orange, Terada-made (or maybe Fuji-gen, but I think Terada) Rancher with a cutaway and a Bigsby. Used to have one, sold it, tried to buy it back when the guy I sold it to re-sold it, but got outbid.

    Wouldn't mind having the 12-string again, either:

    Blue pearl sparkle jet. I traded mine for the RHH. I would do the trade again in a heartbeat, but I want the blue pearl back.

    Kinda like to get back this 6120N that I put an internal Roland GK-3 kit into (note the extra switch, the LED (orange, of course) in between them, and you can't tell, but one of the pickup volume knobs was converted to a synth volume control, and another became a rotary switch to select between the mag and synth pickups (or both). Really wish I hadn't a-sold this one.

    The MYII in natural. I think I have come to the conclusion that the only solid body guitar I want is a double cut jet with translucent finish.

    Duo jets with Dynas. They hardly ever turn up round here. Just scored mine!

    My GAS got totally cured with my red Falcon ;)

    And I'm pretty sure, I'll never sell it. I was lucky in 2014 to get the last one being sold in Germany.

    Filtertron Annie, Dyna Jet, Hilotron Tennessean.

    They never come up at a price I could afford, that is, $50.

    It would have to be the 6129TL Blue Pearl Jet. I'm new to Gretsches anyway and had never seen it until I saw one on here few months ago. If one ever pops up for sale when I'm ready to add to my collection...I will be on it.

    A Gibson JohnnyA came on the market about 4 years ago. The first one to make a $1300 US offer got it. By the time I turned to my wife and went to type in my offer it was gone!!! So what I'm looking for now is a 6128 maybe U$ 700 ...U$ 800...haven't seem one yet!!! :D

    There's a Junior Jet---G5125, I think---with DeArmond 2000s that's a basic slab like a LP Jr. The other one is as rare as hen's teeth---a G460 electric acoustic.
