    Dear GAS-sufferers and Gretsch Aficionados,

    I was in danger and in the end might have another NGD very soon. The secret will not be revealed until it's reality. But I can tell you, I'm excited...

    2 times sleeping till Wednesday and one more proof: I 'm a gearoholic :eek::rolleyes::confused: !

    stay tuned for pics on Wednesday...
    Ohhhhh ohhhhh

    Here in the US, we call this teasing "cruel and usual punishment."


    :D Can't wait to see what's got you so excited.

    Sorry for teasing - just wanted to share my excitement with you, but however don't want to reveal too much unless it's reality.

    I'm not waiting for the truck / delivery. The plan is pickin' it up on the way back home from a business trip...

    You asked for a hint... hmmm - it's greenish and modded (in a good way).

    6 strings, and it has f-holes... not one of THE typical Gretsch-models...

    We're in the vintage section, so I'm presuming it's a vintage Gretsch. F-holes, so a hollowbody. You said "greenish" rather than "green," so I'm presuming it's not a Country Club, Anniversary, Viking or Rally. I'm going to say 1950s 6187 Corvette. Those have ivory tops with greenish backs, sides and pickguards. And modded in a good way...added bridge pickup.

    So, that's my wild guess.

    Well I see you make some serious thoughts and there is some right words mentioned. Since there might be free Wifi in the German ICE, I'll try to upload a photo on my way back home just when it happened. Will ease your pain asap :) :cool::rolleyes:

    I refuse to reply to these "guess what's in the mail" threads. Wait a sec, I just did. Nevermind.

    just about 7-8 hours - you'll be informed as soon as I'm on the train and have Wifi ;). Sorry for teasing - but I dont have pics right now anyway and without - you all know - it wouldn't be valid.
