I had a firebird with dynas that I was looking to sell, when I got an offer of a trade from a GDP'er. Not much interested in trades, I nonetheless asked what he had to offer. A prototype center block doublecut falcon? Done. Once everything was cleared with Joe C (this model was made for an endorsed musician), the guitar was on its way.

It's beautiful. Sounds every inch a Gretsch.
