    So after some FedEx confusion, my new Gretsch arrived this afternoon. I had some concerns about the finish owing to inconsistent photographs on the Intarwebs but this thing is even more beautiful than I had hoped for and it feels GREAT in my inadequate hands.

    My deepest thanks for the encouragement (it's a guitar forum, I didn't really expect any "noes") and reassurance (regarding the finish) I received here.

    No more yammering, here she is:

    I have seen many posts regarding the Gretsch knob upgrade and somehow these showed up in my mailbox!
