    Did Gretsch ever make an Electromatic Corvette in white? I've seen the cherry ones, and a few black ones.

    I had one in natural, emailed Gretsch they said they made 40 of them for GC/MF.

    While I shouldn't be quoted, I think they did a short run of white at some point.

    Yes, but white was available as a standard model option for Japan only.

    However, I do believe there have been some white ones made for an FSR (Fender Special Run) limited release at some point for the USA market; I just couldn't tell you who the dealer was.

    Here are pics of a Japan-market edition:

    If I could find a white on, I’d put a gold pickguard on it and make it into a Gretsch Princess for my wife to play. She’s a big Mary Ford fan, and I recall Gretsch was discussing a Mary Ford White Penguin model following her divorce from Les Paul.

    I do not understand why they are so fixated on one color for that guitar. I'd own one by now if they weren't. That white looks great.
