Thank you. For those still struggling to comprehend it went like this: In March 2019 I emailed the VP of marketing suggesting they do a special run of the G5220 in Broadway Jade, a very rare Gretsch finish, because it would no doubt sell well for them as it is rare and I know quite a few people besides me that would love something in that finish. And that's just people I know personally, that would love that colour but don't want to spend 5k trying to get their hands on one of the 75 LTD Penguins made or try to have a CME exclusive brought to Canada. The VP thought it was a great idea and passed it on to their buyer. In April 2019 I followed up with the VP who forwarded to me an email from their buyer where the buyer thought Broadway Jade was a CME original colour and that they couldn't have it. So, doing what anyone with internet access could do, I linked him to the original Penguin in Broadway Jade (2016), the CME 5445 Electromatic version (2017) and explained the colour is Gretsch's, not CME's, blah blah blah. Again I was thanked for my suggestion and they'd let me know. Then they told me they pitched my suggestion to Gretsch. Last week, now in August 2019, I saw them announce on their website an exclusive LTD G5230T in... yep, Broadway Jade, the colour the buyer thought was a CME original. So I emailed the VP asking what happened to my idea of the G5220 in that colour. The response was... Oh, some retailer in the US used that colour so we're not allowed to have Broadway Jade. So I emailed back saying... Pardon me? You're not allowed to use the colour that you're getting a special run of next month but on a slightly different model than I suggested? Come again? What's that? The colour your buyer never even heard of until I told you about it? Well, this morning they emailed back saying they're not allowed to have the 5220 body but can have a 5230... funny that... same body, just a stoptail vs a B50... but because I spend so much money in their stores and have been a loyal customer spending thousands a year there they're going to try getting a G5220 in that finish from a US retailer just for little ole me. Would I gig a 5220 Electromatic? Probably not. Would I take one into the studio? Maybe. Would I ever own anything with a B50 licensed Bigsby? Nope. Just wanted something in Broadway Jade for the simple pleasure of it. Again, very simple and easy to understand why I'd be ticked enough to spend my money elsewhere.
