I’ve been doing acoustic duo gigs with an old friend for years. After finally ordering a Gretsch barstool online (unavailable in Norwegian music stores….), there was this picture of a Rancher Black Falcon in the «other customers also bought this»-sidebar. Because of CITES, Thomann didn’t ship the guitar to Norway, and with almost no music stores around I forgot about it. Then I saw a white one in a music store during our 2017 summer vacation. Tried it, liked it, had to think. My cousin was getting married later that summer, she wanted me to play at the service, and is there really a better excuse to buy a white guitar with gold bling? So I called the store about a week later; the guitar was still there, but it cost more than I remembered. "OK, let me think about it." Half an hour later, the store called me back and offered it for the price that gear4music advertised (the sad consequence of online stores, I guess…). So I hopped in the car and picked it up. No regrets.
