1 Ripley1046 3 years ago When I went to buy my first Gretsch in 2007 I fully intended on getting the dark cherry stain that GC had at the time. All the pics I'd seen of the orange looked bad, so I never even considered it until I saw it in person. I walked out with my orange 5120 that day, and started the addiction. Yesterday a woman called my music store asking if we'd be interested in buying an Electromatic with a Bigsby. When she showed up it was a 2012 dark cherry (not sure if that's the actual name of the color) 5120. I made her the offer based on how we price our gear normally, and she took it. The great part about being the store manager is I get to buy things at cost, so I got this killer 5120 for half of what I've paid for 2 other Electromatics. I really didn't need another guitar, but for that kind of price who can say no?
