A limited edition model originally offered at Guitar Center for a doorbuster special in 2010. There was only one per store, and not every store got one. For the folks who managed to get their hands on one, they picked up a big hollow orange bass with two TV Jones ThunderTron pickups for well under $1,000.

But the response to this limited edition was pretty good, so they made a few more. Then a few more. So it's not quite so limited anymore. Still a good deal, though.

26 examples are in the Gretsch-GEAR database.
