    Darn people linking to sales in various threads...

    Looked it up, local store had some in stock, but was sold out when I checked again Saturday. Went to a... community meetup, we'll call it, up in Omaha at a coffee shop. Twice had everyone near me move away to other seats (we basically cram together every table in a very large room and they don't mind because we put them back after and give them a lot of business.) Ended up with no one to talk to for most of the event and was feeling mostly terrible... so I decided I'd poke into the Guitar Center on the way home to see if any were left in stock, to do the retail therapy.

    First time I've ever seen wanking in a guitar store, it was only a myth for me up until that point. Guy knew his Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin solos, though. Tons of people standing by the guitar wall looking around for an employee, but I knew better and just brought all my accessory purchases up to a counter, guy came running over, then I asked for the guitar while I was there. They even had boxed ones left, I didn't have to take the very skin oil smudged demo model. My 5655T with Blacktop Broadtrons screams like a metal guitar (with twang), this one definitely "sounds like a Gretsch" (until I use it for punk and metal anyway.)

    Can't wait until I get my first quarterly performance bonus that I'll qualify for, this is definitely getting Brian Setzer TV Jones.

    Edit - Oops, 2420T if no one is recognizing it. Paid $350, regularly $550.

    Congrats! And all those people "leaving you alone" did you a favour - worth remembering when you next meet? o_O (Just kidding)

    Enjoy the new guitar.

    cheers

    Very nice looking Gretsch, that’s a lot of guitar at a “Classic Vibe” price.

    Heck of a lot of guitar for very small coinage.

    Here's mine. I replaced the gold colored plastic knobs with chrome Gretsch knobs. Sets off the rest of the chrome parts! Put on a set of flat wound 11s and away we go!

    They had exactly one gig bag that was big enough to fit it, and it was one meant for an acoustic. Still very snug on the sides. I wanted a hard case, but at least I knew I had a local option if I couldn't find any in stock on line in time. I'll probably get the official 2420T case from Sweetwater eventually.
