Modern Gretsch Guitars

Custom Shop Paisley Double-Cut Jet



This is just exquisite. Stern is knocking it out of the park with these, which really redefine the whole idea of a paisley guitar. The paisley looks almost like lace and the faded gold looks so right. Love the new silver thread case too.


I'm not a giant fan of anything Paisley, but I am of this.


This is the coolest looking ugly guitar I have ever seen.


I love it! except for the old man gold plate. Lil bit of turtle wax n elbow grease while whipe that away


If the hardware was new shiny gold, I'd be less impressed... but that faux patina worn gold on the black/silver body is really a nice look (IMHO).


Yooo Mamma! Never been a fan of double cutaway Jets but that one is..... WOW!


Oh Yeah! I prefer double cuts for the symmetry and and access.


I am with the anti-gold-hardware crowd. But this hardware looks almost like aged brass. And I kinda like it.


Pfft. No Tru Arc. I ain’t buyin’ it.


I hate paisley. Why do I love this guitar? Wow!


gold shouldn't work but it kinda does. paisley shouldn't work but it kinda does. double cut shouldn't work and it still doesn't because it never does but they don't learn and they keep wasting sweet ideas on double cut jets/penguins and that's just a shame.

gretsch keeps hitting the "better than it should be" sweet spot, but that's a different spot than "great". not always sure how to feel about some of these newer ones, but i guess that's the fun and the point of special runs and custom shop models.
