Been looking at these for a couple days now. I had been in the market for a matte black Rat Rod... But that White/Casino Gold, Tri-Five is where I'm at now. It's just gorgeous, to my eyes.
No left hands
I got a matte black rat rod, very cool guitar
Shouldn't be a shock at all. Guitar manufacturers hate us lefties
Fender has a few nice Teles and Strats for you lefties
I like the ocean turquoise. Interesting headstock inlay; I do not think I have seen that design on Gretsches before.
Left-handed 12 inch radius equals h e n s teeth
The vintage white and casino gold one is oddly boring and exciting at the same time.
Hard to choose - The red and white one appeals to my Canadian streak, but they all look great.
I might be in on a 5410 double cut. Stripped down. Setzerish.
To me the rat rod by its name should look worn and rough. While everything under the hood is all go
I’m looking forward to seeing decent photos or even better, in real time at a store for the colors and to play. I’d been still considering a Rat Rod this year and one of these could be a contender. Makes me wish I had kept my Cadillac G tailpiece that I sold last year.
I really, really like that two-tone finishes. Really....
Gretsch noob here....planning on getting my first keeper Gretsch imminently (long story on a G5422TG gone wrong x2,) and I'm leaning towards the Turquoise/Vintage White "Tri-Five" 5410T. Couple questions:
Is this essentially a Rat Rod G5410T with different finishes? Will check out some reviews of that if so to help make my mind up.
What is the size difference between the G5410T and the G5420T? I've demod a couple of G5420T's locally, and I was not a big fan of the massive size compared to what I'm used to playing (Tele's, Les Paul, ES style Ibanez.)
All in all, I'm really digging the color combos on these. Vintage White needs gold hardware though.
It's basically the same as a 5420 but a slightly shallower body depth
I believe the Tri Five is essentially the same as the Rat Rod except for the finish and headstock V emblem. Both are cool in my book.
That’s what I’m waiting for. DC white rat rod. With black hardware like Tsims did a while back
If I didn't already have a Proline Gretsch, I would buy an Electromatic 5420. Fairlane Blue is my favorite color of the 5420s. I almost wish I had that NOW instead of my CAR Hot Rod...
