That's the Stray Cat guitar. The one in the early BSO days was the flamey 337XX "Steve Miller" guitar. Since about 1998, he has played the deeper orange on with a plain top and flamed sides, #34580. I sold 34548 to another GDP'er, but still have 33714.

Great story, congrats! Looks like really nice vintage 6120. Had a similar thing happen once. I was playing a gig and a guy came up afterwards and gave me his 68 Martin D-21 Brazilian Rosewood! It was virtually unplayed since his days in college, said it should be out and playing music once again. Love to hear passing of old guitars to people that appreciate and can use them!

Very cool!

Welcome!

Played my orange 6120 today in a sideman thing, but it's much newer (Terada).

Real vintage Gretsches are da bomb!
