    Judging from the look I would assume that these were chrome.

    It's the green paint job. It looks different colors in different light. This is one of those Julien's Auction ones. Questions is, how many different color Ns are out there? I have no idea, but they are not all orange.
    I did see one for sale in UK that was walnut. I would have spent more than what it sold for, but the guy sold it local for less. I think he didn't want to deal with the customs and tariffs. 20210326_111911_Film4.jpg
    They also had this sunburst one at the auction. I am kicking myself that I didn't try harder for it. But my plan at the auction was getting one or the other, not both. But I thought I had spent enough that day. T2000S Sunburst.jpg

    Some fantastic looking guitars in this thread.

    Here are the penguins, I will admit though I am happy with the gold on white but honestly think I'd rather silver trims on the black one.

    If plastic counts there here is the 6120.

    That sunburst N is totally spectacular!

    Thanks, I thought so, too! It's actually a semi-hollow that's a little smaller in width than a 335, so it's very comfortable to play and the Super 58 Custom pickups are very nicely balanced pickups.

    My most recent purchase, featuring the exact right amount of over the top gold, glitz and glam Gretsch goodness.

    G6134t LTD in firemist silver.

    My G5422TGT does it for me (with as much gold as I need too):

    Well mine is not so exotic-- but one thing is different I added a Penguin "banjo brace" to my Falcon--
    I was afraid to drill in and use screws--so I bought some easily removable adhesive putty--designed to hold paper on walls and come off without a mark--
    That was five years ago--I'm afraid to try and remove it now--however, WHY remove it GoldFalcon.jpg ?
