    May be old news but I just saw the new artist model Gretsch Malcolm Young signiture. Considering they just about cut "meh." On their previous attempt, this new one is seriously STUNNING. thumb_p-3.jpg
    I mean look at it! The correct answer to that is "which one?" I had a REALLY hard time telling them apart. The bridge and wire are slightly different but seriously... this is what custom shop should be.
    Cheers folks.

    The Gretsch Custom Shop has gotten really amazing over the last couple of years. Fender is really allowing them to branch out and do their thing - and Gretsch is selling. It's almost the opposite of what is happening with Jackson/Charvel......

    But, yeah, those guitars look almost indistinguishable!!!

    FWIW, I once owned a '65 Gretsch Tennessean...I NOW own 3 new Gretsch guitars, and IMO, they are WAY better guitars than my "classic" version in build, sound and playability.
    I believe Gretsch's golden age is now.

    That's one guitar that I would love to have in the stable. The custom shop gold sparkle jet I have is superb. I have no doubt the MY tribute is as good as it gets outside of the real thing.

    Shame I'll never get to play one- on principal I don't even TOUCH guitars that are worth more than one of my own internal organs XD

    After watching the guy on the Voice one year, I have the hots for this, but as stated above, I need all internal organs at this point....
