    I've sold the G5120 posted above, but I bought this one so I'm still in the club.
    It's a G5235t Pro Jet with GFS Liverpool 'Minitrons'.

    This is exactly what I am planning, but with a b7, and gold top.

    How do the GFS pickups sound?

    Got a new (used) '08 5120 today ~ Sounds and plays great! Action and set-up just like I like it!

    It'll keep my Pro Jet company...

    I owned a 2009 Pearl Jet. It had some good features but we did not bond.
    I still have an Americana.

    I will have to join this club now. I just received my 6136T-LTV White Falcon in the mail on Friday. It is a beautiful instrument.

    Congratulations on the white lady guityak, she's a looker that's for sure!

    Hmmmm I love these so much. I promised myself to buy one as soon as I get my first paycheck ;)
    I do have it's little brother (sister?) though, a G5570 on which I installed a TV Jones classic and classic+

    My 1st Gretsch!

    and BTW, I'm in the club finally!!!

    Got my 1967 Country Gentleman 6122 yesterday and it is an incredible guitar.

    These are the auction pics. Not generic pics though. This is the actual guitar. I will post my own pics soon.

    Also, it is one of the rare "Country Gentlemen" (notice the "e" in "men") versions. I guess they had an issue with some pickguards with Gentlemen instead of Gentleman on them. Too bad the pickguard has a crack along the lower screw. Oh well. I care more about playing it than hoarding it for retirement anyway.

    I had a White Falcon (Double cut) that I recently traded in for a Custom Shop Tele. I don't have much regret about it except that I traded it in before I joined my current band, so I didn't really get to put it through the paces in a rock setting. Wouldn't mind doing that now, but alas it's too late.

    I had to sell the '59 Gent last year, but now have added this Tennessee Rose (Tennessean re issue). I'm still working with the Hilo'Trons.

    The photo was taken the day I got the guitar. I like to get photos and document the serial number in the event the guitar is stolen. The bridge has subsequently been correctly positioned. Intonation with a bar bridge is more of a compromise than usual, but I still like them. I might replace the current bridge with a TRU-ARC at some point.
