Mine arrived today It is a 2018 model, so it's been sitting in a box in a warehouse for 2-3 years. I am concerned that those years may not have been good. The guitar arrived double boxed, but the inner Gretsch box showed evidence of previous water damage to the top above the neck/fretboard. A little dark mold had grown on the inner lid of the box, and the white styro shroud had some on it as well. The guitar looks pristine, but has the most bowed neck I've seen, likely due to the excess wet environment it had at some point. When it's that bowed, it's not likely to respond enough to the truss rod to bring it fully flat so that an optimal set-up range can be achieved. As the guitar ages and responds to varying humidity and temps, that lack of proper set-up range will prove crucial to it's being useful over time. I've been slowly cranking it, seeing where the neck moves. But if I can't get to flat tomorrow, it's going back. Oh yeah--they are sold out of aspen green, so unless they want to sub a fairlane blue (which is not on sale) that's it for my 5420.
