    Welcome, and please show us your 5420 when you get it. What have you been playing during your Gretsch hiatus?

    I’d love to get a G5420TG-59 also. I let several at good prices slip through my fingers while I was waiting for some of my own stuff to sell.

    Welcome!

    The blue ghost...my avatar...a PGK 59 LP I had built with a piezoelectric bridge...feels like a 59 but in an acoustic-electric sound...several vids on YouTube under Sirius1 precision guitar kits acoustic electric LP...MIM Tele converted to an Esquire...MIM Strat...Gibson 2014 LP Trad, Gibson 2012 LP Tribute with P90’s and a Bigsby, Greco 1979 EG600P (essentially an Ace Frehley Budokan), an Agile Fan fretted acoustic, oh ya and a Breedlove 5 string Acoustic bass for kicks

    I guess my name ghost fits then...Sweetwater says September if I want the 5420TG 59 vintage orange or I could settle and get the regular orange or a different color...I choose to obtain what I want...I can wait till September to get what I want...

    They are all nice colors, but the vintage orange is special. Good decision waiting.


    Mine is Fairlane Blue, it was a complete surprise Christmas gift from my oldest daughter, she picked it out herself and put it under the tree...... so Fairlane blue has become my favorite color on a Guitar I will never sell.
