UPS annoyd me again, as this arrived in San Pablo CA (an hour away from my house) Monday 5pm but they held it there for 30 hours. I just gave it a quick run to check everything works and I am a fan of these DeArmond pickups. They just sound absolutely great! And the neck shape luckily works with my busted left wrist. What a fun little guitar. Couple little dings but I don't think it's been played much as the frets are like new. Serial number dates it to December 2004. So towards the end of the run. GC even shipped it in a Gretsch box.
