    Great guess, yes it is. It is from the first run of the Custom 60.
    I also have a Mosrite Mark1 as well as a few other guitars. LOL

    I hope you noticed that your bass drum is, well... melting.:D

    I always loved the look of Trixon drums.

    i actually dreamt about all of them two nights ago. They were in the back of a rental truck and i stepped out and left the engine running for just a moment....... and someone drove away with all of ‘em.
    Two of these are going on the block, along with an amp and possibly a Fender to make way for the dream guitar coming in March.

    You know, I don't think they make my dream Gretsch. A White Penguin with a 25.5 inch scale possibly a double-cut set up with Jazz Swing 12's and maybe single coils and a swimming pool route.

    I don't know enough yet to know yet... I love the one I have (5439T) even though it's a basic model. Really want the Fairlane Blue 5420T. And since I'm a RHH fan, the signature Reverend Horton Heat would be great. The Hot Rod Setzer's are awesome. I guess my dream would be one of those two signature axes.

    Pre "Players Edition" T-Rose. Why? Because it's good for playing the Americana stuff that I do and even more importantly it's red.

    I’ll likely never see one, let alone be able to afford one but a boy can dream.

    No! My dream guitar is the White Falcon and it has been since the 70's
    I recently bought a White G5420TG (that I REALLY love) which is a very close match visually. Never actually played a real White Falcon, so I can not compare in terms of Playability or sound.

    My Gretsch baby is a G6114B new jet. While not popular at it's time, it is an amazing guitar. It plays so well and makes me sound good. [​IMG]
