    Welcome and congratulations on your first Gretsch!
    And looks like I've missed lots of other fellow G2655T owners during the past weeks. Welcome too, @scrimmer @bhatta @TCFA :)

    Because it's purely cosmetic, that's highly urgent.
    Here's what a GoldDust G2655T looks like with chrome knobs and switch tip:


    Much better, isn't it?

    Ooh, all black? Is that a special edition?

    I bought the same as you except in fairlane blue and I love it. Will also be changing the knobs and pick up selector.

    It was one of their standard colors back in summer 2018 when I bought it. It was discarded and replaced with the current colors in January 2019.
    Also the BroadTron pups are not exactly the same, they've been "upgraded" to the more humbucker-ish current ones (that's what I read, never actually compared them myself). Anyway, I really like mines. They are the reason why I bought it, after comparison with an Epi Casino and an Epi Wildkat in the shop.
