    I just pulled the trigger on one of these!!

    I've dealt with Rocky at Street Sounds quite a few times in the past. I think this is the 5th higher end Gretsch I've bought from him. I really like a lot of the custom features. TV Jones Pickups, Kill Switch, Blacked out pickguard, pinned bridge. It looks to be built for Rocking. I almost bought the non bigsby version a few weeks back and I was going to install a bigsby, I'm glad I waited and just bought one with it already installed.

    I'll post some pics once I get it next week.

    I for got to mention that I have a weak spot for Black and White Guitars and for Gretsch guitars, especially limited edition models. Hence my modded White 5120.


    Thanks for fixing that link. I think it didn't work because that was the one I bought and he pulled down the listing.

    Huge congrats on your happy GAS day! I too have a thing for black and white guitars....that is, for black guitars and for white guitars. That's why I have a White Falcon and an ebony Les Paul Trad Pro. Of course, I like some orange in there too! :D

    Congrats SuperB23!
    And so the agonizing wait begins. Better start warming up your F5-finger muscles.;)

    And here's to a safe delivery: Cheers!

    I like those fake F-holes. They work on a guitar like this. They dont look so hot on the walnut/burgundy to me.

    I don't normally like black, but in this case -- I'd make an exception. Sweet!

    Bought the new "Black Rose" on ebay. My first Gretsch. Absolutely gorgeous guitar, and am bonding with it well. Traditional Gibson/Fender player, this guitar screams.!
