    It seems appropriate for a Jet as it's an aircraft grey!

    There are at least two other threads about this and the fact that the guitar's colour changes depending on the lighting. In most pics it looks blue/green. The only way to determine the true colour will be seeing it in person.

    I think it's an interesting colour, offering different shades. I hope to have one in hands to judge the effect. Would Gretsch have the incredible genius to issue it in LH ? :Do_O Probably no... :( Fine, I won't gas for it ! ;)

    The Dark Cherry Metallic also varies greatly under light exposure, from Gloss Black to Dubonnet Rosso :

    I like it. Do people really expect to like every color available? I prefer darker colors and find many surfy colors to be garish. It's good to have variety.

    It looks fine to me but I bet better in person. I like it when compsnies try new colors every so often because it’s not as stale looking at the same old thing. If it doesn’t sell well or is well received it’ll likely be gone in a year or two.

    I totally agree. why don't they make broadway jade a standard color? or surf green like they had on the limited runs? ide have another gretsch by now if there were more color choices.

    I enjoy the colour diversity Gretsch is offering today. I love the gaudy two-tone designs and love the flat-grey.

    If it is a gretsch, I like it. Western orange is still my fav. color.
