Custom Order Arrivals-The Best Gretsch Ever*

Recommended Posts

The sun hasn't been out so just a crappy indoor pic for now. This one comes to the Rock with Frank Ciavaro's help, and anyone else named Frank. :unsure:

Monaco III, Cadillac Green, Gold hardware, fancy pants** binding, ebony board, bound fancy holes... The factory nailed it. Kudos to the spray-meister. 'Tis spoken for.

I never would have thought about Cadillac Green on a Monaco. That is a perfect looking guitar!

Funny, but I feel like I'VE been grinning all day long! THAT is perhaps the baddest-assed new custom Hamer I've seen.

Dayum. I'm smitten.

Actually, I coined the term "The Ultimate Gretsch" when we started talking about the initial specs early in the year :unsure: I've always loved the way Gretsches looked, but only owned one that played worth a damn!

After this one was already in the works, Jol showed up at NAMM with that 'Tron-equipped Newport masterpiece, so I guess P-90s are the next best thing, eh?

This thing is un-freakin-believable in person. Almost impossible to get a good idea from the pictures - REALLY.

It took a couple of tries to get it right, but that finish is amazing. Anniversary binding (multi-ply) all around...I hope to air it out a bit tonight.

Everybody involved smacked it out of the park on this guitar!!

I think it would look good in Seafoam too. (With chome hardware, of course)

Yes, I'm serious..........Stop laughing, dammit! :unsure:

Jon:

Do I hear "matching Monaco Bass"? I've got a dealer who can hook you up...

Brian - Wrong Twin! :unsure: Actually, I think Serial would dig that a lot!
