    Damn, a black beautied Black Falcon.. tais-teeey!

    Pity it's reliced, does Mr. Stern do anything that doesn't get the relic treatment?! it's really starting to get on my nerves.

    THAT is a HOT Gretsch! I mean... HOT! Just DAMN!

    I am not big on gold hardware, but man it just works on that one! I have only seen a few that I thought gold worked for me on and this is one of them.

    The only change I would make to this for personal taste is to lose the gold plastic pickgaurd and truss rod cover and have MOP headstock work. That's the only place that the gold doesn't work for me.

    I dig that it doesn't have a Bigsby. :D

    As a lover of all of Stern's creations - this IMHO is another masterpiece! :)

    A three pickup Gretsch has been a long time dream of mine. But then on top of that its a US Built Custom Shop Model. Almost worth maxing out a credit card for!!! GAS!!!!

    You think they stole my idea? Mine ain't as pretty but it was a whole bunch cheaper! I would love to hear them side by side.

    I find the relic concept unfathomable. Why mess up an object of perfect beauty by making it look mistreated? I really don't get it at all. Part of the appeal, to me, of wonderful guitars is that, apart from being the medium of the music within us, they are just drop dead gorgeous objects, crafted, hopefully lovingly, by skilled artisans. I just can't subscribe to the theory that a guitar is just a tool, just another burnished pipe wrench in the toolbox. A beautiful guitar is a talisman.

    Spoken as if you had a big shiny black Falcon.

    How are you liking the Dynasonics?
