    Hi , got lots of guitars , just never owned a Gretsch . Couldn't spell it until I started looking at them . I got a electromatic (not sure that's spelled right) double cut jet ? Maybe ? It's sea foam green and white with gold hardware . The wife says it's the ugliest guitar she's ever seen . I got it because I love the way it looks . I really didn't care what kind of tone it would have or how it would play . If nothing else , I could just look at it . It makes me smile . I'm not disappointed with anything about it , sounds good and plays great . It had an issue but the kind and intelligent Ricochet helped me out and got me fixed up .

    Although beauty is in the eye of the beholder I cannot understand that your wife is not totally in love with it`s looks. I would assume that this guitar usually gets all the girls.

    Wives and daughters (husbands and sons too, I guess) can have bewildering taste in guitars .... :D

    If you really want to push her buttons, tell your wife that it's way more fashionable than the last pair of shoes that she bought.:D

    On second thought, no... don't do that unless you feel like sleeping on the couch for the next month.

    Congrats on your new Gretsch! I believe that is a non-standard FSR (factory special run) limited-run finish.
