1 tubwompus 9 months ago A couple of y’all know of my fondness for certain models of guitar with the stipulation that whichever specimen I obtain, I much prefer to have a black finish/gold appointments-type color scheme. Or at least if I can reversably mod it, to have it wind up that way, the exception being the 5120 that Curt perfected. And after a time of looking, I have every one that I wanted. The stash was finally complete...UNTIL!!!......When I went to Ed Roman’s site, ostensibly to order a 12-saddle bridge for a Rickenbacker of the same persuasion,........I see it........Ed Roman commissioned Gretsch to do a run of Country Gentlemen in...you guessed it. He calls the model the “English Gentleman” because it was inspired by George Harrison’s on Ed Sullivan.It’ll arrive next week. Couldn’t help myself, folks. Jeez......I really need to find a good spot for some family photos, dingdangit.
