    they've also got a silver paisley semi-hollow Penguin, some terrific stuff coming out of the custom shop, that's for sure

    Gretsch should make that Merlot sparkle a regular thing, I think.

    So it's called Merlot Sparkle? If it was Pinot Noir Sparkle, I know who'd buy one immediately (@audept :)).

    Holy crap! I wish there were more limited runs like this that weren't Custom Shop models. It seems like most limiteds are typically just color swaps.

    The first time I visited the Wildwood website, I was on the phone in minutes, and my wallet got thinner.

    I am sooooo not into the sparkle stuff, so this one is not for me. Candy apple is as close as I get, and even that is rarely my preference on a guitar. I’m sure it will be great though!

    However, I do love FSR/Limited runs, not because they are limited per se, but because they often hit closer to the mark for ME than the standard production. Not claiming immunity to get-it-while-you-can though ….

    Wildwood has tempted me many times with their FSRs. So far, I haven’t pulled the trigger on one of theirs because the cash never lined up. My latest Limited was a trade from GC, and in the past year or so I’ve sold off the other special runs because of remarrying, but I still look …

    … and I’ve lusted over @G5422T ’s quilted top many times, because that IS sooo me!

    My favorite Duo Jet is a Wildwood FSR... Back with gold hardware and Dynas.

    The 3 Filtertrons setup is very Jack White-ish :)

    Honestly, I can't fault you for that. I would have done the same thing, except part of the conditions of my retirement is that I don't look at Wildwood Guitars anymore.
