    Happy new guitar day. Mine is red 5129 and I just love it. My neighbor made me a custom black strap with red roses embroidered on it. These are great guitars with no modding necessary.

    Really wanted the blue when I got mine about 2 years ago but could not find/wait for one. The blue is really something and very rare. Thanks for sharing the excellent pics.

    I have a 5120, what's a 5127? OK, I notice the different color, what looks like Dynasonic pickups, and a different bridge. Are those the features of a 5127?

    Thunderball is a fantastic James Bond film and I don't know what that film has to do with a 5127.

    Seriously, I, taxer, do not know about the 5127. If its features are Dynas and spectacular color options, man, I got screwed when I bought my 5120. I just went to the Gretsch site and I see no 5127s. Discontinued model? I really do not know much about the 51xx series.

    By the way, your avatar of a white feather is odd. You never saw the film THE FOUR FEATHERS?

    The 5120 is still in production; the 512x series, which had those Dearmond pickups, is discontinued.

    The pickups aren't exactly DynaSonics, but they're very nice. Bright and twangy.

    Congratulations, spruce -- that is one seriously cool guitar!

    Thank you, sir.

    I do feel a bit cheated now with my 5120. I bought that one simply because I loved it when I played it in the stores. I usually do my research before buying anything, but damn, I didn't do it then and now I have some slight regret. That 5127 with those Dynas/DeArmonds sure seems a step up from the Gretschbusters. And the color...I love my orange, but it is pedestrian compared to what Spruce here bought.
