    Was in GC a couple of days ago. What really grabbed my eye was two or three 5410t's that I can't find in any catalog. All had two tone front/back colors. Very classy. Sorry, no pics.

    Anyone else see these?

    I guess I'm going to have to make a special trip back to GC to confirm what I remember. I swear I saw the guitar pictured above, as well as the blue model mate, and both had contrasting back/sides, not just the neck.

    Look closely at the pics on the Gretsch site, the back of the neck and the body sides match. Gold on one and white on the other two.

    My eyes and memory didn't deceive me. They changed from neck only contrast to neck, back and sides. So much better than what is shown at the Gretsch, GC and MF websites.

    OMG! The pictures I took don't reveal the difference between the stock photos and the guitars I saw at GC.

    What I needed to capture is that the backs of the guitars are the same color as the neck and sides. Until Randy99CL prompted me to closely examine the stock photos, I failed to see the color of the sides of the body, at all. On a white background, the sides completely blended in on the turquoise and red ones, especially on the Gretsch site, less so on MF and GC.

    Anyhow, the backs match the sides and the neck, not the top. Sorry, no pics.

    At least my trip back allowed me to play a bunch of acoustic guitars, same as on Monday. Didn't play any Martin's, but did play many others.
    The Gretsch Honey Dripper resonator is a beast, I'm guessing 14 or 15 pounds, it was fun to play, for sure, but heavy.

    Those two color Gretsch guitars sure are tempting. I had the honey dipper for about a week and although a very cool guitar, it was a beast.

    At least the GC you were in had some guitars, the store near me in Tucson has very little inventory, for GC at least. Depressing going there!
