    My dream Gretsch isn't something they have ever produced. :-(

    I'm already there, but probably wouldn't be, had it not been for some very, very generous friends & family who crowdfunded this for my 50th birthday several years back.

    Mine's not a Falcon, it's a straight up Country Club model-- which of course, the Falcon was based upon.

    Nope-- is there something I should know? You haven't even seen my leopard-skin fez yet-- just like Howard Cunningham's... except I was never elected "Gran Poobah" of The Leopard Lodge.:D

    It was a BroadKaster Jr... but I recently got put off of getting a 5410 Rat Rod and got a CB Jr. instead to scratch that itch for the pocket rocket. Now the 5410 line has expanded to include the new Tri-Fives and I really want the White/Casino Gold version. It all works out.

    My dream Gretsch... shoot, I love so many of em. I'd be over the moon if I had either a '59 or RHH 6120, a '53 or '59 Duo Jet, or, if my wildest of dreams did come true, that two tone violet limited edition Penguin.

    - 6134 white penguin (got that one this year)
    - 6118 Anniversary
    - 6128T White blonde power jet (added this one to the dream list last week lol)

    Lately I'm liking the look of the G6659T. An orange one.
