    Do you have the gretsch of your dreams or are you still saving/searching for it?

    If so what model and why?
    Pictures are welcome.

    I thought I had found it with the 6120 Blue Jr, but now I have found it with the grey/violet Club.

    Yes, I'm very fortunate, but it did take quite a while, and quite a few guitars came and went.

    These two are "it" for me.

    Mine would probably be a Gretsch White Penguin (See below). Alas,I am stuck right now with my 2622 Streamliner, but I enjoy that as well! 1580437406657-1734820731.png

    On those days when a White Falcon is my dream Gretsch, yes I do!
    On those days when an orange 6120 is, no I do not.

    I have a lot of dreams yet to fulfill, but this is definitely a dream I wake up to play.

    Did, but I sold it and it won't happen again without a lottery win. That's ok. It funded a number of other fun guitars.

    Almost but Not quite yet.
    I’m working on acquiring it. Have been talking with the current owner for a month.
    I should have it on March 15th.
    I know where it is.
    Terms are agreed.
    Finances are in place.
    There will be some significant sales from my collection but not until after the deal is done.
    6 weeks and im counting the days!

    I have 2 dream gretsch models I want, one will be on it's way to me as soon as the seller gets a freight price and them we finalise the deal, the other is just a simple G6118 two tone smoke green double anniversary with a g stamp tail piece, was the first gretsch I saw and the one that led me to the brand.

    Have an idea for my dream hollow body and my dream jet but that won't happen unless I build them and that isn't going to happen lol

    The search should have been over after that! But I had a new dream. Meet my new dream guitar.

    A 55 vintage select white falcon! After I acquire this I’ll track down my other dream Gretsch-a 5128 gold electromatic from the peerless factory. And then my other dream Gretsch, a grey/purple country club.

    Nope, that would take a Custom job, and no guitar is worth that kind of money(the closest thing is the Steve Wariner sig).
    I think I could come close with a bit of DIY though, if I would be so inclined.
