    Schön. Ich bin leider nur in Frankfort und München gegangen. Ich will mehr sehen, Deutschland gefällt mir sehr.

    Du nimmst mir den Verstand
    Oh, komm doch, komm zu mir
    Komm, gib mir deine Hand
    Komm, gib mir deine Hand

    Oh, du bist so schön
    Schön wie ein Diamant
    Ich will mit dir gehen
    Komm, gib mir deine Hand
    Komm, gib mir deine Hand
    Komm, gib mir deine Hand

    In deinen Armen bin ich glücklich und froh
    Das war noch nie bei einer Anderen
    Einmal so

    Einmal so...", etc., etc.

    Welcome to the forum. I know the 5420 is a great guitar, but without trying to be a wet blanket, I would suggest you consider that you can invest quite a bit of money upgrading the components of the 5420 to 6120 specs, and end up spending almost as much or more than you can buy a used 6120 for. Plus, the 5420 is such a nice instrument in its stock form. So my suggestion is invest in (or do it yourself) a great set-up, and enjoy the 5420, while saving your money for a used 6120. After all, 2 Gretsches are better than one.

    You´re right with the costs, but to me it´s the fun that counts working on this stupid project.
    Goal is to make it look like a 1955 6120, and I´ll never find a cheap one.
    I already own four 5420s, so one has to bleed.
