    I hope this is the right spot to post this, but after this crazy weather the new addition to the family will be arriving soon! The New Jet is finally landing. Taking the wife out for a little dinner and fun then making a video of the unboxing. If interested stay tuned and point out all the stuff I don’t know about these things!

    Just to be clear, the video will be you unboxing the Gretsch, not your wife, right? This is not THAT kind of a forum. Looking forward to the NGD

Absolutely gorgeous! More detailed look and inspection to come. It’s late and dark, but I can’t hardly find a flaw on this thing!

    Great looking guitar. Are the pickups stock? I thought all the New Jets had Torx screw polepieced Filtertrons?

    Congratulations, that is a beautiful 6114. I'm sure you'll be liking that one.
    I love the finish on it, really show off that great wood. Enjoy.

    I noticed that...If they were swapped out I’ll be kinda bummed as I wanted to hear the originals, but having a set in like a classic/+ would be just fine if not better since I know what those do and sound like and the TVs are pretty consistent.

    You’re probably better off. The Dual Filtertrons were TV Jones designed but probably his earliest work for Gretsch.

    Just confirmed, pickups are TV Classics. So the grand I paid for this is looking like a better deal than I thought. 1 small nick on the top by the heel joint. Near mint. Setup is really good, those Nashville guys just know how to make a guitar play in tune! All my concerns were proven unnecessary, it’s butter! Playing demos coming soon!

    These look soo cool, have seen a few on reverb I would've loved to hit the 'buy' button on.
