    The last time I posted here was 2012, so I guess I’m overdue for a catch up. I pulled the trigger on this Cadillac Green G5230T yesterday. I’ve bought a few guitars since my 5120 in 2008 and I’ve been hovering around the idea of a Jet for some time. Can’t say I’ve been too disappointed so far! No doubt the next couple of months will suggest a few upgrades or tweaks, but after exploring a few other options in search of a sound there’s no denying “nothing sounds like a Gretsch :)“.

    Coming back with that Cadillac Green Jet sure makes a big splash, sligo ray! It's definitely a classy look!
