    Now I want one even more. :p
    It always seemed like the Duo Jet was fairly expensive. So in November last year, I bought a G5420T instead, and it was on a discount, so I saved some money on it; though I ended up spending more money on it anyway, since I decided to have a pair of TV Jones Classic pickups and a set of Sperzel locking tuners put in it. I like the blue on this one though.

    new6659,

    Very cool.

    Right now I'm liking this...completely Thunder Struck!

    Beautiful...Well I guess that's in the eye of the beholder...

    Best,

    That looks like one I modded, a few years back, for a friend.

    Well, okay, any guitar's looks might be handicapped to some degree on account of sporting traditionally "f"-shaped sound holes, but your Gretsch is lovely nonetheless!

    Love it. Mine's in pieces right now (new pickups and a Bigsby going in, maybe an additional knob or three, locking tuners, etc.), but these Historic Series Streamliners are something to behold, for sure.

    I have a Penguin coming in but these Champagne Sparkle Jets would be my top choice for most beautiful Gretsch! My next guitar purchase is going to be one for sure!

    Lots of beautiful guitars in this thread!
    I´d go with my old orange modded 5120, i love this guitar to death!
    Also has huge sentimental value to me!
    I wouldn´t trade it for anything!
