    I'm wondering what you consider to be the most beautiful Gretsch you have (or want or have seen). These instruments have a truly wonderful visual appeal, in addition to their sonic capabilities. If I had to pick one of mine, it might be this one:

    A G6128T-1962. A classic, timeless beauty.

    Those are a classy guitar, along with the -'59 version.

    Hard to beat that simple black top over the mahogany wood grained body.

    I'm with you 100%, The 6128T-1962 is my favorite Jet model. I have a few in various colors/finishes. I did have a black one for a while, too. @new6659

    It's a tie for these two. Both beautiful in their own different ways.

    @G5422T - your quilted G6120T is easily one of the most beautiful guitars I have seen on this forum (to me;)) and one of the most unique.

    Thanks, and it plays and sounds as good too.

    Extra special one for me.

    For me, a Caddy Green Country Club is about as elegant as they come.

    I'm stil partial to my Historic 314o. Cat's Eye Rule!

    They are beautiful!

    My G5620T Red Sparkle. I'll go out on a limb here. This guitar is more pleasing for me to play than any Gibson semi-hollow I have or have played in the past.

    My White Falcon is darn sexy

    BUT I think my 6120 may be prettier.
    It’s orange and in the right light the wood grain is complicated and wild.

    White falcons and penguins are beautiful but i think the black varieties of both are stunning more so, in saying that i also think would a blue flame mapple 6228 or the white setzer hot rod are nice as well but for me to pick one would be the custom shop silver sparkle penguin.

    This Daphne blue custom shop Falcon, I think with '55 specs. I love that colour!
    I'm not a big fan of heavy relics, but the slight relic job for the natural satin look is great.

    The most beautiful Gretsch (for you)...

    All Gretsch are beautiful, indeed ! :cool::cool::cool:

    Fancy-Sparkly-Colored finishes are notably the Classy-Classic Trademark on Gretsch guitars.

    "That Great Gretch Sound And Look" should have said the ad...

    But it's me, OK ? :D

    A+!
