    Hello all, new member here from Connecticut.
    I currently own 2 Gretsch guitars a 5422 and a 5232 as well as a slew of others. Just got the 5232 from Sweetwater the other day and I really like it a lot! Anyway hello all and one quick question for all
    I flipped the truss rod cover on the 5232 (From black to white) And I am loving the look
    Any opinions either way??
    Mike

    Aloha, @hawiian2! I vote Yes on your truss rod cover flip. It matches the pickguard and pickup rings now.

    Welcome to G-T! Congrats on the two Gretasches. I like the black on black look but either one is fine with me. It's your guitar!

    Welcome to the group Mike. I'm a fan of contrasting truss rod covers so I like it. If it tickles your fancy, leave it.

    Hi Mike, welcome to the forum. I like all the guitars you have. You'll fit right in here.
    I prefer the black truss rod cover, but the white looks good also.

    H,

    Hello back at ya, and welcome.

    Those little Double Jets do make excellent project guitars. I used a G5222 for the assurance of a maple top.

    Best,

    BIB.
