    Wow. That is the guitar that set me off on a Gretsch buying frenzy 12 years ago. I missed out on one and spent thousands trying to scratch the itch. Congratulations

    Is it worth it having a 'Holy Grail'??

    Speaking as the proud and happy owner of my holy grail guitar i would say the following: its much much better to have your holy grail guitar than to NOT have your holy grail guitar.

    NGD! 2012 Smoke Green Anniversary G6118T 💚

    Congrats. Hope you get back to good health to play the living daylights out of it soon. I love mine. And mine for sure has more life and responsiveness than my old 5420 had despite all its upgrades. The annie has a lot more brightness and livliness.

    Talk me down or help me out!

    If you really cant try a falcon first then its a gamble. BUT, what are you prepared to lose? If you buy it and hate it you will sell it in pristine condition and lose maybe $500 but if you like it then youve gained something significant to add to your toolbelt of sounds. If you arent a gambler...

    Apart from the uncharacteristically judgemental tone that threatened to derail the thread and send the OP running for the hills with a bad taste in their mouth, this has been a really interesting thread. Im learning a lot about what extensive modding/ converting can be done and how common it...

    1955 DuoJet converted to White Penguin

    The truss rod cover looks a bit floaty not set against the nut. Seems odd.
