I recently emailed Gretsch and asked how many G6120T Limited Edition '59 in Dark Cherry got made and this is the answer I got:
"Unfortunately we are unable to give out the production numbers for our products. "Limited Edition" refers to the fact that this was manufactured during a limited period of time and was not produced indefinitely. We can only have the production numbers for guitars with numbers on them such as "#01 of 150"
Hope it helped.
To put it another way, everything they ever produced but don't produce now is a limited edition, plus a few current models that are intended to be limited, and most of the rest which will eventually become limited...
Yes, that was me, and they were so quick to reply and so willing to share the info (yes, 57 of the G6129-RDSP-LTD15 were made) that I’m surprised to hear they haven’t been as forthcoming recently.
Jeez. It's almost as though Joe Carducci walked out the door and they immediately convened a meeting to determine how best to destroy his legacy of great customer relations.Yes, that was me, and they were so quick to reply and so willing to share the info (yes, 57 of the G6129-RDSP-LTD15 were made) that I’m surprised to hear they haven’t been as forthcoming recently.
You may be able to reach out to Gretsch if it’s a specific Limited Edition model in mind. For example a member here reached out a while back about the G6129-RDSP-LTD15 and found out only 57 were produced. I want to say I read somewhere Gretsch anticipated 100. But in 2015 I guess it wasn’t a hot market.
If it’s a FSR you’re talking about, the retailer may have the numbers.
