It's such a great guitar.
Yeah, it's a limited edition (although, I'm not sure how 'limited' it is), so far it's a pretty versatile guitar.
I can see this becoming an expensive hobby. I'm not really a material possession kinda guy but ever since I got this, I'm still looking at other Gretsch guitars online and combing the used ads. I'd probably even pick up some merch if it wasn't double the price with shipping to Canada.
Dig that color!
Beautiful guitar @David_GS , nothing " low end " about that IMO . I'm a stay at home player myself , and at almost 62 yrs of age , the White Falcon is still on my list Enjoy the music
A "low end" Gretsch is better than many "top end" guitars. Yours is a beauty. I'm not gigging, and don't warrant a high end instrument. My 3140 is finer than I'd ever thought possible for the cost.
Oh, and, welcome to the asylum!
I don't gig either, but I do some home recording and so far the guitar sounds great so I'm looking forward to putting it to the test!
They call it "Midnight Satin," which has a nice ring to it.
I'm in the midst of my own mid-life Gretsch crisis. After playing nothing but golden era (pre 1965) Gretsches for my entire guitar playing life, I suddenly lost my nerve and couldn't stomach taking my '59 Gent out to gigs. Every fat chick drunkenly dancing backwards on a collision course with my monitor has been a guaranteed panic attack for a couple of years now. And I only own one guitar, so I don't have a backup. When we play Folsom Prison Blues and the drunks start two stepping, I literally hide behind my drummer. I don't know how or why it happened, but it did. Some very old and magnificent guitars got to work some dumps they were too good for, but I'm out.
Oh, interesting, that must be nerve wracking. Getting a cheaper newer model definitely sounds like the way to go.
Welcome from the Upper Beach! Congrats on pulling off the midlife crisis guitar purchase. I keep angling for it, by my wife doesn't think I'll live until I'm 112.
What's better than getting a new Gretsch? Getting another one.
True! I knew that buying a new guitar wouldn't buy me time to play that guitar, which is partly why I held off so long. But we'll see what I do with it (I definitely have been playing more).
Great choice, fantastic guitars
Someone asked about design modifications here’s an example.
Welcome. Lovely guitar! I admire trhe 2420's but I've never had a chance to play one with the p 90. I had a 2420 and liked it so much I gave it to my sister, who is a song writer. I thought an electric guitar might inspire her to try to write new kinds of material. I don't regret the gift, but now I'm in the market to get another 2420 for myself because I miss the guitar. They are very versatile, as well as beautifully designed.
Hey I sold two Pro Series Gretsch's and am Electromatic and (no accounting for my tastes though) I totally prefer the way my Streamliner plays. Gretsch has done an outstanding job on this series as far as I am concerned. Congrats on your new Gretsch and I really like the pickup combination.
Wow, you're a great brother! What has she been able to do with it so far?
I like the pickup combination as well. There was a used 5122 locally that came with a case that would have been cheaper but I fell in love with this one. I was looking at a used Domino and when that sold I pulled the trigger on this. The used 5122 is still for sale:
