I better hold on to mine. It's a great guitar.Sorry Mike,
Nothing there that remotely interests me.
A baritone Jet with Electromatic parts, there is only one Country Gentleman and that's not it, and IMHO, the tiger stripes would look much better on a tiger.
Just me, but the nicest recent Gretsch was the Rosewood Tenny, and that limited edition run is over and with the exception of shops who still have stock, there are no more available.
The last time I looked, Fab Gear still had stock.
If there is such a thing as a beautiful Gretsch, the Rosewood Tenny is it.

You said it! I mean, if you were gonna spend 12k, why not have at least two or three guitars? A brand-new, customized everything guitar from my luthier friend would "only" be 4k. Would love to know if anybody buys these to play. Only one I've seen that appeared to be in real use is this guy's (at least I assume that's Custom Shop) --Add in the cost and I'm content to keep on creating my own.
I guess I got my CS model... without me even asking!Too funny, they copied Ed/Wayne's Gent. I have good measurements/drawings and pictures of a 1st generation bar bridge from late '57 and early '58 that I've thought about sending to Stephen Stern in case he ever has the desire to recreate them. It's what should be on this guitar.
