So I have been thinking about trying to save up for a Custom Shop Falcon. Nothing too wild, but definitely something you can't get in a standard production model. Basically a full size Falcon, trestle bracing, Bigsby, Setzer V-neck with the 9 1/2" fretboard radius and medium jumbo frets, frets on top of the neck binding (instead of having the binding cover the end of the fret), and finished in some shade of red. Either a solid red or a translucent red finish over some figured wood. Not sure yet whether I want the 55 or 59 inlays. I haven't contacted a Custom Shop dealer yet to start the process. Not sure whether that will even be this year or not. More likely in another year or two. But I'm determined to do it. I'll likely never buy another Custom Shop guitar after this one, so I am willing to wait to get exactly what I want. Has anybody went through the whole process to have a Custom Shop Gretsch made? Were the dealers helpful? Were there any sticking points about the process? The more I think about it, the more excited I get about it.
