Hi All,

In february 2009, I bought my 1st GRETSCH :

A Synchromatic G100NT that I changed dexterity from R to L.

In february 2012, I bought my 2nd GRETSCH :

An Electromatic G5435LH BK Pro-Jet, on which I will install a B-5 Bigsby in the few days to come.

These 2 guitars were brand-new. I must say that both are very good instruments - particularly, the G5435LH is a promising item...

What about a next one ? A Tennesse Rose G6119LH for me, and a White Falcon G6136TLTV for my daughter... Un jour peut-être...

Unless if there is a kind of G5119LH and G5136T coming soon...

A+!

Hmmmm? You're looking for a Tennessee Rose?? Too bad you need a lefty ;)
I just happen to have a beautiful and fairly unique Rare Custom Black Tennessee Rose up for sale right now.
Beautiful guitar!
Bought new.
I've only owned it for a few months.
Not a mark on it.
Still has the plastic on the pick guard.
Unfortunately, I must sell.
TV Jones pick ups.
Ebony fret board.
Perfectly set up.
Only sixty made.
Comes with original plush case.
$2000. and i'll ship it to you out there.

What a nice instrument you have there - Black Class... Indeed !

Too bad I need a lefty - yes, you're right - but all my guitars are lefty, sorry :

Nonetheless, this one (G6119LH) would be very convenient for me, for example, when the money will be on the table again :

Oh... And after : a LH version of the Silver Falcon, the Black Falcon, the White Falcon, the Country Club in Cadillac Green, and...

A+!

OK - the B-5 is on the guitar +++

as you can see, it is placed lower than on the G5435T. This way suits me, because it's the same placement as on my semi-hollows. It was not possible on the GRETSCH Corvette, that's why I discarded it...

A+!

Hi hcsterg: Beautiful guitar!, I´m a lefty too and love this Duo Jet little sister!. I´ve been searching for a video review, demo, and just found a little one of Joey Carducci about all the new series models:

Leobeat; that's an Electromatic Pro Jet, you may have more luck finding reviews when searching for it by it's proper name... "Duo Jet" is only for the pro-line models ;)

Yes, nice guitars, but I'm digging those Music Man AMPS! Are you the original owner? Would love to hear the story behind those... For those of you that don't know, the Music Man RD series amps from the 70 's/80's are excellent sounding well- built, and reliable.
